Mike Glenn makes the switch from MMA to boxing later this month in a bit to halt Kimbo Slice's assault on the pro rankings and make a name for himself as a pugilist.

Glenn, 34, makes his boxing debut on the night after an extensive career in Mixed Martial Arts and is widely thought to be Kimbo's toughest test yet since turning professional in August last year.

The unbeaten Slice (3-0, 2 KO's) will make his fourth appearance in the boxing ring on the March 24th date at the O’Reilly Center in Springfield, Missouri in a rescheduled bout named 'Fight Night Returns.'

Slice, real name Kevin Ferguson, scored two spectacular first round knockout wins before he was taken the distance in a laboured performance against a game Charles Hackmann in December.

This sounds just like how his epic cream filled MMA career started. After he drops a couple of losses in boxing, what combat sport will he dive into next for a short lived hype train? Phone Post

Mike can take a punch and has some good knockout power. If Seth p knocked kimbo out with that fadeaway punch I could see Mike Glenn stopping Kimbo as well. Also this isn't the first MMA opponent that has been brought in for Kimbo. James Wade was also primarily a MMA guy too. Phone Post

That's how boxing works, retard.  They don't throw you in with the Klitschko's after 3 fights.

LOLWUT.  Show me any reputable site that has Kimbo ranked anywhere.

rating
 
615 / 1114  - this is on Boxrec...he is the 615th rated HW in the world.  For some perspective, the guy ranked 613th has a career record of 2-22-1.

 252 / 411 - 252nd ranked American in the world.


The assault is not quite an assault.

LOL, SOOO glad Kimbo left the goofball, always complaining MMA fans behind. Now they have to follow him just to continue bitching.

My best guess is either XARM or chessboxing.

Why so much hate for man just trying to make a living ? You'd be happier if he was living in his van again, we all know.


BTW pro boxer spend WAY MORE time going through WAY MORE cans than Kimbo has gone through so far. Young pro fighters are brought along MUCH slower than Kimbo will be boxing or MMA.

I hope he does well. Do you not recognize the Kimbo phenomenon though? It does not matter where this guy goes, he is followed by an absurd amount of hype. EliteXC was pushing him as THE BEST MMA fighter on the planet when he had three pro fights against nobodies. There was talk about him fighting Fedor, and in an interview someone even asked Fedor about fighting Kimbo.

I know none of that is his fault, but the stuff saying Kimbo is "making an assault on the pro rankings" is just another revival of the crazy hype that has always followed him. Don't get me wrong either, Kimbo is a far better boxer than mixed martial artists. But did you watch his last fight? He was gassed after round 1 and almost got KO'ed by a guy who was 0-0 as a boxer and like 3-4 as a mixed martial artist.

My point is, you know there are people out there who when they hear about Kimbo winning boxing matches, think he will mop the floor with Klitschko. They obviously don't know any better, they probably don't even know who Klitschko is, but they for some reason assume they are watching one of the best on the planet, and that is the Kimbo phenomenon.

What I'm saying is just like in MMA, they will have to keep padding his record because he cannot match up against a legit opponent. He just simply does not have the athletic ability to do so. Phone Post
