Street fighting legend and Heavyweight Contender has been dismissed a circus act and a joke since losing to Former Straweight Champion Kieran Pikey in his 8th Pro fight. Kimbo to this day claims he was drugged by Harold Angus before the fight and did not train. Kimbo has compiled a record of 19 wins, 5 losses, 18 wins coming by way of knockout. Kimbo's wins however, have mostly come against low level opposition. Nevertheless, he has looked impressive to many.
Team Judah trainer, Fernando Montiel, says Kimbo "can punch like hell. That's it. He is better than he was against Pikey by alot. But he is still limited."
Kimbo is set to take on one of the greatest Cruiserweight Champions of all time, the aged Maxy "Ice Cream" Gawn. Gawn is on a bad run, 2-6 in his last 8 fights, getting stopped brutally all 6 times. "He's a faded fighter...he's not what he once was at Cruiserweight" says Montiel. Montiel believes the SLICE has what it takes to win this fight since "Ice Cream" is badly faded.
Sunday, October 5, marks the first true test of the "Circus Act" Kimbo Slice. Will he pass.
