"The commission felt the fight was not going to be competitive at this time after comparing [Sims' and Sylvia's] records and the opponents both fighters had faced," Profato stated in an email response. "And even though it was 2004, Sylvia previously stopped Sims at 1:36 of the first round."

These are the same commissions that sanction some of these blatantly lopsided undercard boxing matches ?

Yep, messed up I know...maybe the flame got to them, and good for them learning their lesson. Best part is I think we were all sparred from having to see it!

It's kinda sad to see what Wes Sims career has become.

Are you kidding? Sims was a joke from the beginning. His "career" is amazing to me.

win win for sims. money and of course if he wins that looks great for him. Sylvia needs to build momentum. 3 losses and one win in the last 4 fights...sure he'd like to get 2 wins in a row and sims is a recognizable name.
