UFC and TUF veteran, Kevin Ferguson who is more known as Kimbo Slice had his fourth professional boxing fight last night. He took on Brian Green, a middleweight Mixed Martial Arts fighter who stepped in on short notice to face the much bigger fighter.
Green, who has a 27-17 record competing at 185 lbs. in MMA, "officially" weighed in at 223 lbs. Slice on the other hand tipped the scales at 245.6 lbs.
He may be severely undersized, and may not have the luxury of having a full training camp, but he still gave the former YouTube sensation a run for his money.
Green, using his speed advantage, constantly landed hard shots throughout the fight and was clearly winning on the judges scorecards after the first three rounds. Coming to the last round of their 4-round fight though, Green, who took the fight on a few days notice, looked to have slowed down considerably. He was still able to land his share of power shots, but Green looked completely spent, and Slice was able to capitalize on the last seconds. Kimbo landed an uppercut, which dropped him to end the fight with only 3 seconds remaining.
With the victory, the 38-year-old Slice improves his pro-boxing record to 4-0. He's clearly not the "injection to the heavyweight division" that the Shaws have been claiming, but it's nice to see him still 'getting his bread' and making the most of his opportunities given his skill level.
