Default Would Kimbo been successful in Bare knuckle?

if kimbo took on bare knuckle fighting instead of boxing and mma, do you think he would have been more successful? kimbo has decent power but does not have the stamina/skills to compete in mma/boxing matches.

Probably very good, his hands were very tough, I never saw him break his hands in those bare knuckle street fighting videos.

Probably, his only real downfall was his conditioning. He'd lose to the first guy who was better conditioned.

it's a shame that bare knuckle wasnt around or wasnt as big as it is now when kimbo was still around.. i have no doubt that kimbo would have been a champ. his downfall was his stamina but i dont think that will come into play much in bare knuckle.

RIP Kimbo. Dude came from nothing. Imagine if he had proper training. He definitely needed to do some road work. His fight against Gannon was purely the result of Kimbo running out of gas.

While the guy hit like a truck and had durable hands when bare-knuckle, he did get put on his ass by a gloved jab.

I think he would have done better at bare-knuckle than he did in MMA and boxing, but who knows.

I wonder if he had a heart condition that messed up his cardio, no matter how much he trained.


True story; back when I was involved in MMA, there was a local fighter from a different gym who was on a lot of the cards I was at.

I never saw this guy win, and I looked up his record once and iirc he hadn't ever won yet. He'd had quite a few fights, too.

He wasn't bad in the first minute or two, then he just fell flat. Hands on the knees, mouth open, type gassed. In the first round!

I never saw a fight of his fights go to the 2nd round, and I saw the guy fight quite a few times.

Turns out the guy was a bouncer on Austin's 6th Street as his real job. One night the guy dropped dead at work of a heart issue. He was around 30.

When I heard about Kimbo dying, I immediately thought of that guy.

Kimbo

Yes Kimbo would do well. He trained and came up in a manner where it set one up to fight bare knuckle. bare knuckle progresses at a distinct pace, and KImbo had the chops to push that pace on the offensive, which is why he was succesful in the yards.

I think Kimbo was chronically underestimated. MMA is a real athlete's game, and boxing different yet. Bare knuckle guys have to be mindful of the hands, the standing grapple, etc.
