Israel's unbeaten Roman Greenberg displayed little of the skills that won him 25 fights. Still, he had more than enough Saturday for Michael Simms.
In the main undercard bout before heavyweight contender Sultan Ibragimov fought Javier Mora, Greenberg looked sluggish and uncertain. He did carry whatever action there was in scoring a unanimous decision, but Simms blocked most of Greenberg's punches.
Russian-born Greenberg, who moved to Israel when he was 11 and now lives in England, didn't look very comfortable in New York. The best action came in the final minute of the 10th round, but by then the outcome was long decided.
Greenberg got the nod from the three judges, all by 99-91 scores as he won nine of the 10 rounds.
