Rivera looked terrible
Travis Simms, along with WBA #1 Middleweight Contender Randy Griffin, have been in Columbia, South Carolina, since Thanksgiving training for their upcoming fights. Simms has strong ties to South Carolina having fought here several times over the years.
WBA Champion “In Recess” “Tremendous” Travis Simms takes on the current WBA Super Welterweight Champion Jose Antonio Rivera in a much anticipated fight on the undercard of the James Toney vs. Sam Peter heavyweight rematch.
Simms is anxious to reclaim the title he won from Alex Garcia and Rivera is eager to prove himself to be the true champion. Both Travis and Randy Griffin have considered coming back to train in South Carolina again. With access to two great boxing gyms in Columbia, White Rock Boxing Gym and Palmetto Boxing and Fitness, Simms and company have been able to get in some excellent gym work.
The fights take place on January 6th at The Seminole Hard Rock Arena in Miami,Florida.
