Kimbo is just a ghetto dude who found a way to legitimately make some cash. I'm not going to sing his praises as a fighter, but I give him the best wishes in making enough cash that he won't have to end up in jail.

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.
Of course he doesnt care. I've seen him show up to fights in about 5 or 6 different $50k vehicles to his various fights.

The other thing people dont understand is that Kimbo has been doing this for over a decade. Its only since YouTube came around that people started learning about Kimbo, even though he's been streetfighting since he was big enough to do so.

Surely the FBI, IRS or somebody should be chasing this guy, illegal betting, tax evasion, breach of the peace, assault, gbh, and the evidence is all on tape.

Palese Gannon did everything but box when he fought Kimbo , even when he did throw hands he absolutely sucked and then resorted to knees and chokes in a "bare knuckle boxing match".

That's insane. They must be going on age alone. If I was a betting man, I'd put down a hefty wager on Mercer - wouldn't bet the farm, because Mercer is old. But the odds of a crude amateur like Slice beating a trained fighter like Mercer are MINIMAL.

Maybe Mercer ought to have John Ruiz as a sparring partner.

Because Kimbo grappling skill>Mercer grappling skills.

All Kimbo will need to do is to survive 5 or so shots from mercer, grab him and its over. If mercer hasnt trained grappling defense, hes screwed. Boxing is not enough, specially against someone who has "some" boxing skills. Just think of a really pathetic HW top 100, put him in there with the best who is Wlad. Sure Wlad is 10 leagues ahead of him in terms of boxing skill, but do you really think that guy is not capable of grabbing Wlad at all? Specially considering how many *unintentional* clinches there are in HW boxing, nevermind how many there would be with intentional clinches.

Kimbo is most likely going to take Mercer down and pound the shit out of him. That is my guess.
