BOXING BABES

These babes can't get enough ringside action.

Travis Simms is free on $1,000 bond.

The 41-year-old Simms is a former World Boxing Association light middleweight champion and served two years on the Norwalk city council. He faces charges including breach of peace after his Sunday night arrest.

Police say Simms was among those who refused to leave a large disturbance involving the widow of his adopted brother. They say he screamed at them and strongly resisted when they tried to handcuff him so they used a stun gun to subdue him.

Simms hasn't responded to requests for comment made Monday.

Simms also was arrested in 2010 after authorities say he fought with his twin brother.
