Keenan Smith - Edgar Gaebjan in main event

Also undefeated Elijah Vines, Tyrell Wright, John Bauza, Donald Smith & Dylan Price


Atlantic City, NJ (April 19, 2017)- Undefeated junior welterweight Kenneth Sims, Jr. will look to make it 12 in a row without a loss when he takes on tough Mexican Israel Villela in a six-round co-feature bout this Saturday night at The Claridge Hotel In Atlantic City.

The bout will be part of a ten-bout card promoted by GH3 Promotions and D and D Promotions.

In the main event, undefeated junior welterweight Keenan Smith (10-0, 4 KO's) of Philadelphia takes on veteran Edgar Gabejan of the Philippines in a bout scheduled for eight-rounds.

Sims of Chicago, will be making his 2nd consecutive start on the boardwalk after his eight-round unanimous decision over Emmanuel Robles (15-1-1) on January 20th at Ballys. That fight was part of a ShoBox: The New Generation card seen live on Showtime.

Sims got the call to take a "Stay Busy" fight, before he steps back up later in the Summer.

"I found out about this fight three weeks ago. It is not a big deal, I already had been sparring, so I am in good shape and ready for Saturday," said Sims.

In Villela, Sims has seen little, but not a lot of his opponent, but he will be ready for anything that Villela will bring to the ring.

"I saw a few Youtube videos, but I did not see a lot to get to a feel for him. But I am an experienced fighter, and I just have to fight my fight. I am not underestimating him, and I know he will be trying to win."

In the fight with Robles, Sims fought well throughout, and gave a brief critique of his performance.

"I looked over the last fight, and I looked better watching it on television then I thought I did in the ring. With that being said, I know I have things to work on, and I could have looked better."

Sims is looking for a big performance on Saturday that will be a prelude to a busy Summer.

"It would be good to get a stoppage. I am looking to come back May 13th in Louisiana, then a fight back on television."

Appearing in six-round bouts will be:


Tyrell Wright (9-0-1, 6 KO's) of Jersey City, NJ will face Dan Pasciolla (9-2-1) of Brick, New Jersey in a heavyweight bout.

In a battle of undefeated super lightweights, John Bauza (5-0, 2 KO's) of North Bergen, NJ will fight Jesus Salas (1-0, 1 KO) of Puerto Rico

In four-round bouts:

Elijah Vines (3-0, 3 KO's) of Philadelphia will take on James Robinson (4-7-4, 1 KO) of York, PA in a super welterweight bout.

Donald Smith (4-0, 3 KO's) of Philadelphia will square off with Vincent Jennings (5-3, 4 KO's) of Grand Rapids, MI in a super featherweight tussle.

Dylan Price (1-0, 1 KO) of Sicklerville, NJ will fight Chris Nelson (1-3) of Kentucky in a super flyweight bout.

Emmanuel Rodriguez of Newark, NJ will make his pro debut against Jaxel Marrero (1-7-2) of Puerto Rico in a bantamweight bout.

Tickets range from $50 - $150 and can be purchased by calling 856-842-7577
