As you’ve surely noticed, Kimbo Slice has been laying low since his embarassing loss to Seth Petruzelli at EliteXC: Heat. And though he would have been an excellent addition to DREAM’s Super Hulk Tournament, Kimbo’s days as an MMA fighter might be over for good. Last week, MMA Fanhouse reported that the YouTube-brawler-turned-MMA-sideshow is no longer contractually tied to Strikeforce, and now the Sun Sentinel is passing along this bit of news about Slice’s athletic future:
Be careful, Kimbo: Don King is a wretched, slimy, reptilian mothafucka. But at least the sport of boxing will allow Kimbo to rebuild his confidence against "opponents" who are all but paid to lose. Was Kimbo’s TKO loss to Petruzelli proof that he has no chin under that beard? Will Ferg flourish in a combat environment that prohibits takedowns and kicks? Or have you already decided that you’re not going to care about Kimbo Slice, no matter what happens to him?
