PostSubject: Kimbo boxes James Wade on Aug. 13 in Oklahoma   Sat Jul 16, 2011 1:54 am

Quote :
The beard is back, and now he has an opponent.

Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson returns to competition in August, though
this time with boxing gloves on rather than the four-ounce variety.

Gary Shaw Productions and Tony Holden Promotions today announced Slice
will box James Wade in a four-round main event at Buffalo Run Casino in
Miami, Okla.

The previously announced event takes place Aug. 13.

"Just like in MMA, Kimbo Slice is walking around with bullseye on his
back," Team Kimbo promotional advisor Jared Shaw stated. "His opponents
know they can make themselves known to the world if they can take him
out.

"To Kimbo, it's a pro boxing debut. To James Wade, this is a world championship fight."

It was Gary Shaw who actually introduced Ferguson to the MMA world in
2007 as the head of the since-folded EliteXC organization. A former
underground sensation who rose to fame thanks to his
bareknuckle-fighting videos on YouTube, Ferguson won his first three MMA
bouts, including the first-ever U.S.-network televised MMA headliner
(against James Thompson at "EliteXC: Primetime"). Despite an eventual
loss to Seth Petruzelli in the final major EliteXC show, UFC president
Dana White took a gamble on "Kimbo" in 2009.

Ferguson was the featured fighter on a heavyweights-only 10th season of
"The Ultimate Fighter," which shattered the reality series' ratings
record.

Can some one say "Good night Irene" ? Kimbo was a poor striker in mma and he has a questionable chin. Boxing isn't the right move for him. WWE/TNA or NJPW, is where he should be, he would be huge in Japan!

Pro wrestling wouldt be a bad idea for him actually. I just think he's to old, his body wouldn't be able to take it. But hell, he could be the next Bob Sapp!

Ya I vote pro wrestling too. The more we see boxers and MMA fighters trying to cross over unsuccessfully, the more we're seeing that holy fucking shit, they actually ARE two different sports. You're good at one, you suck pipe at the other. That's the distinguishing factor.
