Kimbo Slice's Return is Pushed Back To March 24th

By Phil D. Jay

Unbeaten Kimbo Slice (3-0, 2 KO's) will now make his next appearance in the boxing ring on March 24th at the O’Reilly Center in Springfield, Missouri after originally being pencilled in to fight on February 11th.

There had been speculation about the 37 year-old taking on local fighter Robert Bruce (2-0, 2 KO’s) but that rumour was publicly quashed by the promoter and an opponent will be named in the near future.

The card on February 11th will also still go ahead at the venue with an alternative headline fight as AJ Van Camp, Jesse Cook, Orlando Utsey, Steven Kollin and Taylor Faulkner are all scheduled to appear next month.

The mentioned fighters will also appear on the card in late March but will be joined by Jose Gonzalez v Mustafa Johnson, Justin Ridgway v Jody Lee Linithicum and of course, Kimbo tops the bill.
