That said i don't think handpicked Mercer.
I don't think they had a menu too large to choose from of name fighters.
Mercer was probably the best option but not "handpicked" among Lennox Lewis, Oliver McCall, etc.

i don't know if it is even possible for him to throw a high kick because he i so wide. anyway, you still got to respect kimbo. he's earning money by the only way he know how. as i said before, kimbo should pray he lands 4-5 of his powe punches before mecer lands one of his

Nobody is making him out to be an ubeatable Marciano/Liston
just a big mean guy who will fight whoever, and not go cry about it after he losses.

Yea he got his ass kicked by that mediocare but guess what he is still fighting Mercer.

If Mercer beats him guess what?
He will probably fight Chagaev or Emelianenko if they offer it to him.
He will more then likely get beat up again but he will fight.

He will make good money for it and keep chugging along.
THAT is in a sense admirable because i don't think he will ever be weighted down by managers looking to set up something big or what not.

he is like a rich man's version of Joe Grim.
Nice to see that someone knows his classics.
Joe Grimm, the human punching bag
This erratic figure whas known to do cartwheels after a fight when he succeeded to absorb massive blows without being knocked out.

Question: Which ATG fought this guy and could not ko him ?

I Saw one video a while ago Kimbo was fighting with another guy and he did beat Kimbos Ass. He aint a boxer he is some kind of street fighter but with not enough endurance as a boxer.
I say Kimbo Loses..

I am suprised that Kimbo made it out of 1 round of sparring with Grant. Maybe if he's actually training his staminia will be better. Still I am 80 percent sure that Mercer wins this bout. I'll give Kimbo a small chance due to Mercer's age and a small possibility of being taken down.

Kimbo VS Gannon, was the fight that Kimbo got his ass kicked. The other guy doest seem so fit as kimbo but he looks like a boxer.

kimbo is very strong but his muscles need oxygen and like others have said he would be able to hold up his guard after about 4 minutes.

ray mercer is one of the most decieving fighters that i have seen. he doesnt have the greatest physiqe but gold medalist and very debatable fight against lewis makes me think that if anything, mercer will see a window in kimbos defense and use the experience that he has.

im thinking that this will look like tim witherspoon against a very poor mans frank bruno.

He hasn't flat out said it, but he doesn't seem to really be bringing in top guys or going out to good camps. He keeps saying things like "one punch in 4oz gloves..." and "I'm a boxer, I tend to use that as my main game plan" which while both are true, both are also usually what you hear from fighters who lack a backup gameplan, he hasn't come right out and said only boxing will be enough, but he sure hasn't made it clear if he is taking the other parts of the game seriously at all.

Gannon is a pretty good boxer, multiple time golden glove winner in Boston, but never really a pro prospect or anything. He also is a state Judo champ and has won a few grappling tournaments in New England. He seems like a guy who is pretty good at everything but can't really either focus on one thing and be great at it, or put it all together and be great at MMA.

He got the ever loving shit beat out of him by Brandon Lee Hinkle at UFC 55, but thats not too big of a knock against him, Hinkle is a ****ing beast of a wrestler and has been fighting MMA since the bare knuckle Vale Tudo days in Brazil.

Just because kimbo has brought in a famous name for the last 2 weeks of his training doesnt mean that mercer hasnt been working with good coaches. How many boxers reveal what they have done in training? Mma is funny, they all join teams, whereas in boxing they set up their own training camps in secluded places.
Mercer has been working with coaches from ATT, joe Diamond`s acmma and shore kick karate mma for his jj, as well as boxing trainer mike hall.
