Kimbo Slice's Future

Kimbo_mediumStill very much up in the air:

"It’s not out of the question that CBS might do some fights in the future. Who knows? They’re might be some doors still open," said Imber. "They liked their numbers. They like the sport itself, and they wanted to do it. Unfortunately, it’s just not going to be with the current organization. Maybe they don’t do anything in the future, but it wasn’t just completely ruled out."

If early buzz that CBS plans to either run its own events from here on out or bring a new promotion into its coveted "Saturday Night Fights" slot holds true, the network hasn’t made any moves to hint at it yet.

The Kimbo Slice entourage has not been contacted by CBS, Showtime, Affliction, Strikeforce or even the UFC.

I have no doubts Slice will end up in a large promotion where he is prominently featured, but promoters are taking their time before they make any moves. Using Slice will require promotional and marketing gymnastics of a very unique kind. Coker, Atencio, Kahl, White and others know this.
