"In the Corner" Works Both Ways for Heavyweight Manager Simmons

Who knew? That big heavyweight boxing Friday night in Chicago is managed by a 6'6", 230-pound heavier weight, Bobby Simmons. Simmons has opened a new career path, managing Fres Oquendo, who's 29-5 with 18 knockouts. Don't worry, Simmons has no Kendall Gill-like aspirations to step into the ring himself but he has been training with former Olympic bronze medalist Nate Jones.
