Wesley Tucker, Anthony Sims Jr., Pablo Sanchez and Curtis Hill Jr. win in Indy


Anthony Sims JrINDIANAPOLIS, Indiana — Professional boxing returned to the Circle City on Saturday evening with an entertaining card at the Farm Bureau Insurance Building at the Indiana State Fairgrounds presented by CBA Promotions.

Fans were treated with eleven bouts featuring some solid up-and-coming prospects from the Midwest in fights ranging from four to six rounds. Five fighters also made their pro debuts.

Wesley Tucker, an undefeated 28-year-old welterweight from Toledo, Ohio, thoroughly outclassed veteran Dedrick Bell over the course of six rounds but couldn’t quite get his opponent out of there before the final bell. Tucker (11-0, 7 KOs) won via unanimous decision by identical scores of 60-54 on all three scorecards.

Ditto for Indianapolis native Curtis Hill Jr., who outpointed his light heavyweight opponent Martez Williamson in shutout fashion as well. The 22-year-old Hill (6-0, 3 KOs) took every round in the judges’ eyes, convincingly winning by scores of 60-54 times three.

Fellow light heavyweight and Central Indiana resident Anthony Sims Jr. also appeared on the card and picked up a victory in impressive fashion, moving his career win total into double digits. Sims (10-0, 9 KOs) didn’t even need a full round to dispose of his opponent, journeyman William Johnson, via TKO. Sims already has a date set for his next fight against a to-be-determined opponent on May 7 and will be looking to keep his “0” in tact.

Not to be outdone, local junior middleweight Pablo Sanchez decided to deliver some excitement of his own against Guy Packer of Michigan. Sanchez (7-1, 5 KOs) wore down his 41-year-old foe, eventually winning by TKO in the third round.
