Ariel Helwani of FanHouse speaks with Jared Shaw, the son of boxing promoter Gary Shaw. The Shaws famously made a mess of EliteXC on CBS last year when Kimbo Slice turned out to not be so amazing after all, shocking considering he was so good at punching guys built like me in backyards. About 8:45 into this video, Shaw discusses the idea that Kimbo should be in boxing. I again say this is ludicrous, just an awful idea, and not to be smug because I'm just a fan and everything, but thinking that Kimbo Slice, 35 years old, could compete in professional boxing past the lowest of levels shows a serious lack of understanding of these sports. If you put Kimbo in with a Klitschko, he'll be crushed. If you put him in with Arreola, he'll be crushed. If you put him in with some journeyman like Ronald Bellamy, he'll probably lose pretty badly there. He's not fast, his power is not other-worldly or anything, and he'd get chewed up and spit out in boxing. I think Kimbo is a cool guy and I wish he'd come into boxing, like, 20 years ago, but he didn't.
