Kimbo Slice Is Moving On To Boxing? Possibly…

Tuesday, November 18th, 2008

During a recent interview with Sports Talk 790 the Ticket, on November 12 Kimbo Slice mentioned that he may transition from MMA to Boxing. “I’m thinking about boxing as well… “Boxing is wide open right now. I want to do it all.”

And what about MMA and his loss to Seth Petruzelli? EliteXC “had us under the impression that the fight wasn’t happening. When they said it wasn’t going to happen, that blood I’ve been holding on the whole time while I was training, I kind of let it go a little bit”… “I was a little bit depressed, but I kind of had a relaxed mind frame and everything about me was no longer in fight mode.”

Kimbo Slice aka Kevin Ferguson Fight Contract For Sale by EliteXC

Wednesday, November 5th, 2008

As collateral, EliteXC has put up for sale the contracts for all of their fighters.  Among the fighters included in this public auction will be Kevin Ferguson, aka Kimbo Slice.  The event will take place on November 17, 2008, will the UFC sweep in and snatch up Kimbo’s Contract?  Dana White suggests that he has no interest in Kimbo unless he wants to be apart of UFC’s The Ultimate Fighter reality show… But maybe he’s just trying to devalue the contract so that Zuffa can take it?

Kimbo Slice Post EliteXC Loss Press Conference Video

Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

I’ve been waiting to see this video for a while, the Kimbo Slice post EliteXC loss (Seth Petruzelli) press conference video.  Jeremy Lappen Head of Operations for EliteXC first talks about Kimbo and how humble he is.  Kimbo then walks in wearing some shades to cover up the black eye, sticks out his tongue for some strange reason.  Kimbo then speaks about his loss, shakes Seth’s hand humbly and show’s off his first Black Eye ever.  He handled it very well.

Kimbo Slice No Longer Fighting for ProElite / EliteXC

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

According to Sports Illustrated Magazine, ProElite, the partnership between CBS, Showtime and EliteXC has gone out of business. Apparently after Showtime was unable to obtain the percentage of ownership that it wished to gain in the company, the funding for the media company ProElite began to dry up, forcing the company to go out of business. The last promotion viewers increased from 2.7 million up to 4.5 million for the Shamrock vs Slice fight, however, the opening night gained the most viewers back in May of 2008 with 6.5 million viewers total. The cost of $500,000 for both Kimbo Slice and Andrew Arlovski each had something to do with it? Well, the numbers seem a bit steep compared to the $170,000 that the UFC gave Arlovski at UFC 82 to fight Jake O’Brien.
