10-2-09 SHOBOX Green Outpoints Simms

Allan Green Defeats Tarvis Simms By 10 Round Unanimous Decision (168 LBS.)

Allan Green (29-1, 20 KO's) looked sharp in his 10 round unanimous decision victory over previously undefeated Tarvis Simms (25-1-1, 11 KO's). Scores were 99-91, 98-92 and 97-93. Green didn't dominate Simms, but won convincingly and made a case for himself that he should have been in Showtime's "Super Six" Super Middleweight Tournament.

Green started to get into a rhythm quickly in the first round. He started to push Simms back with the jab. Green showed the superior edge in hand speed and worked his punches off the jab effectively. Simms fought a smart a fight. He used a lot feints and did not stand directly in front of Green. In the third round, Green started to land more combinations while Simms landed some left hooks to the head. In the fourth round, Green started to land a volume of punches to the head and body of Simms. Green hit Simms with sharp, accurate punches, but Simms closed the round by landing two big left hooks. Green was countering Simms quickly in the fifth and landed a strong overhand right. Protect yourself with sparring equipment.

Simms decided to switch to a southpaw stance in round six. That decision slowed the pace from Green. Green was forced to think more before letting his hands go. The different look enabled Simms to land some straight lefts. Green started to close the gap in the seventh round and landed a straight right off his jab. Both fighters attacked the body when they were in close range.

In the eighth round, Green stunned Simms with a right and then landed a flurry to the body and head. Simms caught Green with a right jab, straight left and right hook combination that backed him into the ropes. Then, Green landed a sharp right uppercut that backed up Simms.

One of Green's best rounds may have been the ninth. Green pressed forward at a furious pace and landed a crisp right and followed it with a combination. A left to the body momentarily stunned Simms. Simms switching back to a conventional stance proved not to be a smart thing as Green started teeing off with punches. Simms switched back to a southpaw stance in the tenth and landed a straight left, but Green had already did enough and held on to take the decision.

In welterweight action, Antwone Smith (17-1-1, 9 KO's) won by a TKO when Henry Crawford (22-1-1, 9 KO's) could not answer the bell for round ten. Crawford started the fight strong using his jab and edge in hand speed to beat Smith to the punch. In round two, Crawford landed some blistering combinations, but Smith caught Crawford with a flush left hook. From that point, Smith took control of the fight. Smith landed a solid left hook in the third round. Crawford lowered his hands and Smith went on to hammer him with hard punches.

The fourth round contained solid toe-to-toe action with Smith getting the better of the exchanges. Smith landed a sharp right uppercut and followed up with a left hook to the head and body of Crawford. Then, Smith landed an overhand right. In the fifth round, Smith was showing good stamina and Crawford appeared fatigued.

In the sixth round, Smith was working the body and then landed a hard left hook to the head that dazed Crawford. An overhand right from Smith forced Crawford to bend down, touching the canvas with both gloves resulting in a knock down. From there, Smith jumped on him, landing left hooks to the head as Crawford continued to drop his hands. An overhand right-left hook combination rocked Crawford. The referee had grounds to stop the fight, but he let the action continue. Somehow, Crawford finished the round. Crawford got hammered with an overhand right in round seven, but stayed on his feet. However, Smith would finish Crawford with an overhand right that sent him into the ropes and almost through them in the ninth round. After the round, Crawford could barely lift his head in the corner and his team stopped the bout.

Also, in a super middleweight bout, Marcus Johnson improved his record to (18-0, 14 KO's) with an 8th round unanimous decision victory over Victor Villereal (8-4-2, 4 KO's). All three judges scored the fight 80-71. Train full speed with a body protector for boxing or MMA.
