Youtube Sensation/UFC vet/pornstar confidant Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson will be looking to improve his professional boxing record to 4-0 come March 24th, when he welcomes former MMA fighter Mike Glenn to the boxing world at the O’Reilly Center in Springfield, Missouri in a card dubbed Fight Night Returns.
Since being ousted from the UFC following a second round TKO loss to Matt Mitrione at UFC 113 and subsequently calling it a day on his MMA career, Slice has scored three straight victories inside the boxing ring, the first two of which came via brutal one punch knockout inside the first round. It appeared as if the future Spike TV host was destined for WBA dominance, until he ran into personal fitness trainer and boxing newbee Charles Hackmann. Although Hackmann came into the bout on just a day’s notice, he managed to make it the distance with Kimbo and nearly finished him in the second round. The win, to say the least, was not impressive.
But fret not, Kimbo will be looking to silence that haters in his next bout, when he takes on Mike Glenn, a 5-6 MMA fighter making his professional boxing debut. It’s kind of sad to say this, but Glenn is without a doubt Slice’s toughest opponent to date. I mean, the man has only one TKO loss on his MMA record, and it was due to doctor’s stoppage, so we know he isn’t as KO-prone as the other gentlemen K. Ferg has faced. And that’s saying something, right? Anyone?
Though his record is less than impressive, Glenn does own a submission via armbar win over legendary Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, as well as a win under a major promotion–a first round TKO over Lee “Manimal” Brosseau at Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu 2. No joke, Glenn’s last fight took place at the same venue that will hold his big debut, under an event titled Slay Marketing – Champions Collide: A Fight for the Kids. You cannot make that shit up.
So what say you, Potato Nation, will Slice improve to 5-0? Or will Glenn prove to be too much for him?
