By Rick Reeno

Promoter Gary Shaw has confirmed to BoxingScene.com that there are actual ongoing discussions to make a fight between heavyweight Kevin Ferguson AKA Kimbo Slice (5-0, 4KOs) and former four division world champion Roy Jones Jr. (56-8, 40KOs).

Kimbo, 38, became an internet sensation with his street fight videos that generated millions of views on Youtube.

He then became a popular Mixed Martial Arts fighter in EliteXC and UFC. After suffering a TKO loss at UFC 113, he was cut by the company and walked away from Mixed Martial Arts with a record of 4-2.

He made his boxing debut in August of 2011.

Contrary to numerous published reports, Shaw indicates the fight will not be an exhibition.

"It would not be an exhibition, but a legitimate fight, sanctioned by a boxing commission," Shaw, who handles Kimbo, told BoxingScene.com.

While the two sides continue to talk, Shaw makes it clear that they are even close to a deal - with the terms, location, venue, and the money - still not agreed upon.

Must Roy Jones insist with continuing to go on with this farce? Shaw is a sad case. He drove away all his fighters and is now reduced to promoting the likes of Kimbo.

Kimbo is no problem if he keeps sticking and moving. But if he starts showboating, rope-a-dope or some fancy ****, it could end badly.
