Kimbo, looking like Rick Ross with slightly better cardio
You know, I can’t help but feel like I’ve seen this happen before.
While you were busy watching UFC 141, Kimbo Slice looked to improve his professional boxing record to 3-0 at the Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, Oklahoma. So far in his boxing career, the Shaws have been feeding Kimbo cans with losing records, and Kimbo has been capitalizing in devastating fashion. Friday night, however, Kimbo Slice was given his toughest test in his young boxing career in Charles Hackmann, a fitness instructor making his professional boxing debut after taking the bout on just one day’s notice.
It’s almost like the guy was brought in to lose (snickers), yet he held his own against the former UFC fighter (sigh), almost pulling off the upset in the second round. The action wasn’t as fast-paced as Cruz vs. Johnson, yet you wouldn’t know it by how badly both fighters gassed in the third and fourth rounds. When it was all said and done, Kimbo improved to 3-0, yet had major holes in his game exposed.

So what say you, Potato Nation? Does Kimbo rebound in his next fight and silence his critics? Does Kimbo get knocked out by a metrosexual journeyman? Let us know in the comments section.
