Video: Kimbo Slice Discusses Boxing Debut Victory

Kimbo Slice spoke with FightHub.tv about his pro boxing debut last Saturday, which was a 17-second knockout of a guy who isn't really a professional boxer other than the fact that he's been sanctioned to fight and lose twice at age 39. But despite criticisms, I think Kimbo as usual comes off as a likeable guy who isn't delusional about himself. He has Jared Shaw out there to be delusional for him, so Kimbo just stays pretty honest. Here's the video:

  • "I can't give myself a good grade, because my movements was a little shady, and I just felt like I didn't really connect like I really wanted to. I still have a lot of learning to do in this business. I'm a baby, taking baby steps, and I've just got to take it one at a time."
  • "It's like second nature for me. I'm comfortable here. I've found a home here."
  • "I learn as I go on. And I leave it up to my managers and my matchmakers to figure out our next steps. I'm back to the gym next week. There's no time off this late in the game for me. ... I wanna fight within the next two or three weeks if I could."

Kimbo (1-0, 1 KO) will be fighting on October 15, says Jared Shaw -- and of course, Gary Shaw Productions is co-promoting with Golden Boy at the Staples Center for the Hopkins vs Dawson show. There is really no chance that Kimbo winds up on the PPV portion of that show, because frankly I don't think HBO would even entertain the idea of airing the fight, or even showing clips, but I suppose you never know. And the date isn't set in stone anyway, so we'll see.
