lol...his name is Kimbo slice (thats his real name apparently!) Hes a well known streetfighter from miami. Backed by a miami Porn baron he will fight anyone anywhere anytime for purses ranging from $5-10k. Theres a bit of info on him on the internet. He served 10 years in jail for "some shit a nigga didnt do". He fights for money because he cant afford to support himself and his disabled mum by legit means (due to his criminal record).

His first recorded fight was against "byrd" in the backyard vid. Kimbo handed his a$$ to him and after the fight byrd lost his eye. Second recorded fight was against some fat rasta in a boatyard and Kimbo KO'd him with a wicked uppercut. Third recorded fight was against ex-cop and martial artist Sean Gannon. This was Kimbo's only other loss in his fight career apart from when some punk used mace on him. (kimbo accepted the loss as he hadnt said 'no mace' but KO'd the guy in their rematch within 10 seconds!!)

Kimbo is a hard hard man but he is 32 years old and doesnt have that much skill. He has basic boxing skills but is a powerful hitter. They were trying to train him up to be a UFC fighter but noones really heard of him since 2004.
Do a google search and find more ;)

Obviously a very, very tough man. Just imagine the damage he could do if he was a talented fighter?! I shudder to think.
theres been much debate on this topic. Kimbo is an ex con and has spent 10 years in 'the pen'. although this would give him certain experience noone outside prison could learn from a boxing gym or martial arts training he is still basically just a street thug fighting other punks. If you stuck him in the ring with someone who knows how to fight, like Mike Tyson, kimbo wouldnt last 20 seconds. His fitness is poor, he doesnt know any clinch, kick, knee, elbow or submission techniques and is purely a power hitter going for the quick KO. At 32 years old hes a bit too old to be training to become any kind of professional fighter.

I wouldn't argue with any of that. Making these fights bare knuckle probably does him a favour as it'll reduce the force of a punch landed and increase the amount of damage through cuts. Still wouldn't fancy spilling his pint though;)
