With Bo Cantrell of Citrus Heights, California (10-10) being named as the next stop on the Kevin “Kimbo Slice” Ferguson MMA Experiment (my title for his newfound career-the only way I’m taking it off is if and when he manages to beat a top 25 heavyweight or he and his people offer me my own backyard knuckle scrape DVD project), the question on everyone’s mind had to be whether or not this man is “legit.”

Who cares? He's fun to watch and his hair cracks me up. He's like what would happen if Bozo the clown and Freeway had a baby....and it got addicted to roids and crack.

this match should be good. Bo's not a good fighter on many accounts but hes got a bunch of exp and Kimbo needs someone like that right now. perfect match making IMO. Ima put my wagers on Bo just cause hes being painted as the underdog and if he pulls it off im in to make a ton of cash

LOL...roids & crack. Very nice.

He's a tough guy...reminds me of the "old days" before UFC 1 when they would put on tough man competitions in bars & small venues. Kimbo is a slice of old school tough guy (pardon the pun).

Oh, he's also gonna get KTFO, prolly.

I wonder if Kimbo will "cop out" and go for a quick takedown and submission again? he did that against Mercer, which while prolly smart cos a boxer like Mercer would of picked him apart did surprise me, Kimbo will lose all his fans if he changes his fighting style like that, he should stand and bang with Bo and we can see how he holds up

I think he has more to lose from losing the fight than changing his style. If he loses ecspecially if he loses badly, i bet you dont hear from him again for a while.

Kimbo is definetly overrated and I don't think he'll ever be a legit contender. Heres a pic of the guy hes fighting.
