Video: Jared Shaw Hypes Kimbo Slice in Usual Over-the-Top Fashion

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

This is about as close to a "Macho Man" Randy Savage interview as you will ever get from a boxing promoter. Here's Jared Shaw, son of Gary Shaw, on Kimbo Slice's 17-second, low-level club fight boxing debut in Oklahoma this past Saturday:

If there is a better quote than, "an injection into the boxing scene steroid-free serum. Kimbo Slice has hands, that's just the natural cause," then I don't know what it is. I mean, holy crap.

My favorite thing lately is that Jared Shaw has said that Dana White made a big mistake letting Kimbo go, despite also admitting that Kimbo wasn't cut out for MMA at a high level. So what was Dana White supposed to do? Keep a guy who couldn't compete at the top level? He cut him and now the Shaws will pin their hopes and dreams on Kimbo for the second time. Good for them. Best of luck. But how does that make Dana White dumb or whatever?

I also love that if you loved Mike Tyson, you better love Kimbo Slice. That reminds me of when I'm on Facebook and I get one of those ads that says, "Like Deadwood?" and then it recommends I watch Weeds or Dexter. Please.
