Kimbo says he sucks at MMA so now he wants to suck at Boxing

MMA is stupid

MMA is stupid

By Garrett Bailey

Kimbo Slice is was 3-1 as a mixed-martial artist. He won’t be inducted into any Hall of Fames. He won’t be missed by many, but for some, Kimbo was their guy to cheer for.

Before getting knocked out by Seth Petruzelli, before popping Josh Thompson’s ear, before beating cans in Tank and Cantrell, Kimbo Slice was an internet sensation that was feared by many (at least in the eyes of sometimes MMA fans); and it didn’t matter that the guys he was fighting were over weight wannabe street thugs, and it didn’t matter that Kimbo was above average at best….I can keep going and say his fame skyrocketed passed his actual skill as a fighter.

Now he’s a punchline. He says he wants to box now and that boxing is his true desire.

MMA is hard, says Kimbo talking to the The Nassau Guardian:

“… MMA training is extremely hard. When you consider martial arts training, you have to prepare for kicks to the head and legs, and opponents wanting to grapple and throwing you to the ground, pounding you with their knees and hands, whereas in boxing you just have to be prepared to weave and bob although the training can be just as intense. At this point in my career, I want to take that same drive and focus that I invested in MMA and put that into training for pro-boxing cards.”

Stupid leg kicks.

    You had to know this was coming, especially since the UFC or Affliction did not try to sign him to a big contract. And boxing promoters and their fans will promote the crap out of him. I hope he does really well in boxing and gets title shots. That way MMA fans can say “a has been or never was MMA fighter went into boxing and killed them all!”
