– Ron Simmons spoke with the Jobbing Out podcast (h/t Pressbox) about being the first African-American to win a major world championship 25 years ago, this month. Simmons talked about the victory and how it inspired others.

“It’s something that you never forget, that you always relive, and I’ve done that ever since that happened. It’s something that you never get over and you are not only proud of yourself, but also it gives you special meaning when people come up to you and say, ‘Thank you for giving me that inspiration from when you won that title that night. Not just because of it being the title but because of it giving me inspiration to go on to do other things with my life.’ Now you can’t ask for a better compliment than that.”
