Kimbo is nothing like Mike Tyson...at all.
Mike Tyson, in his early career, was a well conditioned machine fighting in what really was a weak Post- Larry Holmes division.
But he had the skills for his sport. He lost them when his manager died and he lost his base of sanity. But, when he did have them, he was the best in heavyweight boxing.
Kimbo Slice is a joke. He may become good, even better than good, but he is not in the top 50 of heavyweights He has not fought a guy in the top 50. He is a puncher with no other skills. No ground game at all and he has never been tested by anyone that fights MMA. Oh yeah, he beat up a few guys behind Home Depot. He fights in a league that is for also rans. Put him in with Randy Couture or a real fighter, and he would not last 2 rounds. Randy pummeled Gonzaga, who is a real fighter with a real record.
Kimbo should stay with EliteXC or whoever, who will keep giving him tomato cans to beat up. I would love to see him fight a guy that can fight, but it won't happpen. His promotion makes too much money from pay per view to have him fight a real fighter. Who is his next fight? Jose Canseco?
