Just when he thought he had safely escaped to the glorious city of Japan, Kimbo Slice may be finding out that Brett Rogers isn’t the only one who thinks it’d be fun to beat him up. Nightmare of Battle is passing along a rumor that Melvin Manhoef spotted Kimbo backstage at last weekend’s K-1 2008 Grand Prix and wasted no time shouting out his appeal for Kimbo to, "Fight with me!”
Reportedly some K-1 officials got in between them before anything more happened. Again, this is firmly in the rumor category at this point, but man would it ever be a fight I’d like to see. Remember the punch from Seth Petruzelli that dropped Kimbo? Manhoef throws harder punches in his sleep. Seriously, he does. As a kid he was banned from attending any and all slumber parties. Plus, he uses those “Thai-style kicks” that Kimbo would rather just avoid altogether.
My guess is that after seeing what he did to Paul Slowinski – who knows a thing or two about this kickboxing stuff – Kimbo wants no part of Manhoef. Watch it for yourself after the jump, then see if you blame him:
