(Chill dawg, the video’s after the jump.)
The trail of bodies left in the wake of street-certified pugilist Kimbo Slice led us to Springfield, Missouri, last night, where the fighter formerly known as Kevin Ferguson looked to extend his professional boxing career to a perfect 4-0. Slice, you may recall, was originally slated to face Mike Glenn, but Camp Kimbo pulled out of the bout after not receiving any training footage of the 0-0 boxer. Fortunately for us all, they found an undersized opponent with no pro-boxing experience to fill in at the last-minute.
Brian Green, who competes in MMA as a Middleweight, weighed in some 22lbs lighter than Slice according to the scales at WalMart. With Green’s considerable MMA background and Kimbo’s relative inexperience in the world of Marquess of Queensberry, this bout actually ended up being far more competitive than Icy Mike would have preferred.

Green used a combination of speed and actual boxing skill to batter Kimbo’s beard in the first three rounds. The crowd chanted for the ‘underdog’ throughout the fight, though it’s quite possible they were die-hard Afropuff fans thirsty for revenge. Green had noticeably fatigued by the fourth and final frame—that kind of thing can happen when you take a bout on a few days notice—but still dutifully swung them thangs as he looked to put Slice away. Unquestionably behind on the scorecards three rounds to nil, Kimbo charged his opponent as the clock ticked down, capping off a three-punch combination with a short uppercut that dropped Green cold with three seconds left in the match. Done Da-Da.
