He tried beating the count by referee Vic deWysocki but struggled at 10. “I saw tapes on him and felt he couldn’t take it to the body but he had his head up so I threw a left hook and thought he might get up.

Simms came right back rocking Cortes with a pair of right hooks to the chin. There were very few clinches for referee de Wysocki to be concerned with.
