Kimbo Slice spectacular in boxing debut with 17-second knockout

By Steve Cofield

Kimbo Slice built his reputation on the streets by destroying his opponents with a ferocious attack. Because of takedowns and grappling, it didn't quite work out for Kimbo in mixed martial arts. Saturday night he went back to his roots, albeit wearing the heavy gloves on instead of going bare-knuckled and scored a vicious 17-second knockout in his professional boxing debut at Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, Oklahoma.

"It's like second nature for me. I'm comfortable here. I found a home here," said Slice (1-0) of his crossover to boxing.

The 37-year-old also knows he has a lot to learn and didn't want to get too excited about the win.

"I can't give myself a good grade because my movements were a little shady. I felt like I didn't really connect the way I wanted to. I still have a lot of learning to do. I'm a baby, taking baby steps," said Kimbo.

Check out the raw video shot from the crowd in Oklahoma. Kimbo took out James Wade with a brutal uppercut. Wade was out cold balancing on the ropes.

I wish the guy well. His knees were too fuked for mma. He could make a good living in boxing for a couple of years. Heh Kimbo vs Toney?

Well it was a good punch, he timed it well. Not many guys can tell you about the evils of leading with an uppercut though because they don't remember what happened. He won't get away with that for long, but for now it worked pretty well. His career is kinda working in reverse, isn't it? He started out as a big timer, now he's doing the local circuits. Best of luck to Kevin Ferguson.

Remember he started out in back yards on the internet. Street fighting for money and running before the cops got there. I've always been a huge fan of the underdog and Mr. Ferguson is certainly that. I hope he does well.
