Roy Jones vs. Kimbo in Talks, Will Not Be an Exhibition
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.Comment by sdcluser on 09-25-2012

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.Post a Comment/View More User Comments (87)
