In a bout reduced from ten to eight rounds, 38-year-old heavyweight Robert Simms (12-3-1, 3 KOs) ended the unbeaten run of Kenzie Morrison (20-1-2, 18 KOs), son of former heavyweight champion Tommy “The Duke” Morrison, in a “Sons of Legends” card on Saturday night at Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kansas.
Simms, appearing to be quite overweight, showed good defense, a good jab and a great chin. Morrison landed his share of shots, but Sims’ skills largely frustrated him. Scores were 78-74 3x. Sims claimed the USNBC belt.
Debuting 19-year-old super welterweight Steve Cunningham Jr. bumrushed fellow debutant Andre Scott, 33, and got him out of there in 16 seconds.
Featherweight Jose Luis Castillo Jr. (25-3, 19 KOs) destroyed James Roach (6-6, 5 KOs) in the first round. Castillo dropped Roach twice. Time was 2:11. Impressive demolition by Castillo who showed a lot of charisma in his postfight interview.
Welterweight Jake Robinson (6-2-1, 3 KOs) scored a six round unanimous decision over Alcibiade “Roberto Duran Jr” Duran (9-3, 7 KOs). Robinson built up an insurmountable lead, then nearly got knocked out by Duran in the final round. Scores were 59-55, 59-55, 60-54.
Light heavyweight Yavontae Christopher (3-0, 2 KOs) took the fight to previously unbeaten Gerald McClellan Jr. (2-1, 1 KO) and won a four round 40-36, 39-37, 40-36 unanimous decision.
In all, three of the five sons were defeated.
No more pretenders please.
Idk what is worse, watching legends fighting each other in exhibition bouts who once could fight but now can’t, or watching their sons who never could fight. It’s a tossup.
Lol
If Simms can get a good dietician & fitness coach, he can be a legitimate contender at bridgerweight, or a better contender at Heavyweight. That is his problem. Simms needs to slim down.
I think you meant contender at cruiserweight.
I said Bridgerweight. Not Cruiserweight. Mr. Simms can make Bridgerweight. I doubt seriously he can make Crusierweight.
Then again, he should be a Super Welterweight at his height. With a good dietician, who knows.
Bridgerweight is made up. Lol Deontay Wilder weighed 214 or so his last fight. Most of his career he weighed under 220 pounds. So based off the fake Bridgerweight Deontay Wilder isn’t a heavyweight. If you are over 201 pounds you are a heavyweight.
Nobody cares about bridgerweight or cruiserweight-heavyweights used to be 175+ and should still be.
If Sims does not get himself into decent shape, he will have the biggest battle fighting in the ring against type 2 diabetes.
Sad, yet true, Scooby Doo.
Scooby, the way he looks he’ll be the first case of type 3 diabetes.
Sorry he wouldn’t the first, there already are many cases of Type III diabetes, sadly.
It seems the glass ceiling has been reached here.
Sims would be a perfect patron at Robs Diner in what’s happening
Hey-that’s Marvin Hagler’s nephew you’re talking about!
That’s “Marvelous Marvin Hagler” to real boxing fans! LOL!
I hate to break it to you, Ty, but Robert Simms is NOT Robbie Sim”s son.
Put out the cigarette. Robert Simms is NOT Robbie Sims son. Besides, Robert spells his last name Simms. Robbie spelled his Sims. He is not Hagler’s nephew.
its very tough for sons of former pro athletes to find success muchless being a champion and if there fathers were legends its a mountain too tall to climb those kids do not have a clue on the struggles it took their fathers to get there
I do not believe that you have to be from the ghetto to box..a guy who can go to college but decides to fight might be tougher than the ones that have to ..look at Mike Tyson and Zab Judah ..both from Brownsville claiming they had nothing , but both have quit in the ring once they get adversity ..never tell what’s in the heart ..mma fighters generally are not from the slums
Yes, but most MMA fighters stink at boxing. They’re basically high school wrestlers with some basic karate thrown in (both of which are middle-class disciplines).
MMA guys are generally tougher in terms of heart ..a lot are from middle class..took
Comment to mean sons of fighters have a tough time because they didn’t have it tough as kid like their father
Mike Tyson never “quit” in the ring in his prime.Douglas whooped his butt yet he continued to fight. Holyfield and Lennox Lewis also whipped his butt and he never quit. He just got beat down.
He quit against Holyfield by biting 2 times ..Lewis he showed absolutely nothing the entire fight ..he nearly quit against Botha by trying to break his arm ..he quit against the Irish bum
Its all about what genetics you receive and when. I know a guy who was 6’3 and played in the NBA for 10 years and made millions of dollars and had an older brother who was 5’7 and not as skilled and resented his younger brother for his success. Some sons have it and some don’t. We all have different strengths, we just need to learn how to embrace them and not put all of our eggs in one basket; everyone is not going to be rich and famous.
I am not saying Kenzie Morrison is good but it is funny how every time a person loses 1 match now you casual fans will say they aren’t that good or should retire. Kenzie lost, will he learn something from this lost or not. That is the question.

Former super world champion Anselmo “Chemito” Moreno and his wife Rousse Laguna presented a six fight pro boxing event on Friday night at the Centro de Combates in Panama City, to continue their campaign to rescue the Young local talent.
Super lightweights Fernando “Pantera” Martínez (6-2, 2 KOs) and Samir Cuentas (2-3, 0 KOs) starred a very tactical 6-round fight, with Martínez escaping with a majority decision.
The dislocation of the right shoulder of Carlos Montenegro (3-2-2, 0 KOs) exactly one minute into the fight, ended the great expectations of the co-main event, with a TKO victory for Daniel “El Chato” Lezcano (5-2-1, 3 KOs).
Flyweight Angel Bethancourt (3-0, 3 KOs) temporarily moved up to Bantam to stop Marcos Arrieta (0-8) by TKO at 2:45 of round number 2.
On his pro debut, super flyweight Jeffrey Martínez scored a first round knockout (2:55) over Fernando Lorenzo (0-3).
Welterweight sensation, Harvin Aguirre (7-0, 5 KOs) remains undefeated after beating veteran Barnie Argüelles ( 12-13, 8 KOs) at 1:55 of the very first round.
Also on welterweights, Josue Alvarado (4-1, 1 KO) stopped Oriel Bethancourt (0-4) at 0:54 of round number one.
The winners will fight on Laguna Premium Boxing´s next “KO to Cancer” event in October.
