Walter Sims of North Hollywood had no idea where he was 2 minutes 20 seconds into the first round of his lightweight boxing match Thursday night against Chris Calvin.
One thing seemed certain: He wasn't on his way to the Forum tournament semifinals.
After surviving two first-round knockdowns at the hands of Calvin, the second one apparently putting him just a punch or two away from elimination, Sims rallied to win a unanimous 10-round decision over Calvin before a crowd of 3,605.
Sims lost the second round while he struggled to push the cobwebs from his mind, then floored Calvin in the third with a right hand.
Calvin never regained momentum, and the decision was sealed in the seventh round when Calvin, a Nashville fireman, suffered an injury to his right hand. His manager, James Mullins, said the hand was broken.
