Bareknuckle street fight champion Kimbo Slice choked out Olympic gold medal winner/former heavyweight champion Ray Mercer (34-6, 25KOs), 46-years-old, in the first round of their heavyweight exhibition in the main event of the Cage Fury pay-per-view at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Kimbo was the heavy crowd favorite, with fans erupting as he was announced in the ring. The fight was over pretty quick, Kimbo going for a takedown in the early going and took Mercer down. Mercer made it back up where Kimbo began to land knees and began to engage Mercer with punches until coming off with a double leg and placing him in a guillotine choke to make him tap for the submission win at 1:12 of the first round.

The exhibition paid both fighters $50,000, Kimbo received an additional $25,000 for winning and $10,000 for making Mercer tap. Mercer looked every bit his age in the ring.
