In what feels like an implausible scenario, a Jamaica based newspaper is reporting that a bout between boxing great Roy Jones Jr, and Kimbo Slice is in the works. The proposed bout is reported to be in Jamaica in December, and will be on Pay Per View in the United States.
They even gave Kimbo Slice (a nickname) another nickname – The Street Fighter. Kevin “Kimbo “The Streetfighter” Slice” Ferguson is a little awkward. In truth, technically Kimbo Slice in an AKA rather than a ring name, which makes it a little less absurd, but still, do not be shocked if the bout does not come to pass.
With local boxing slowly regaining its vibrancy, Giomax Entertainment company and Stewart’s Auto Sales have combined in an effort to take the sport to another level with an exciting exhibition bout featuring the enigmatic veteran boxing star Roy ‘Superman‘ Jones and streetfighter turned professional boxer, Kimbo ‘The Streetfighter’ Slice.
The fight, labelled ‘Beauty and the Beast’, will take place in Montego Bay in December, it was announced at a launch at the Spanish Court Hotel on Thursday evening.
Lawyer Lewis Hanna, who has been helping to tie up the deal, noted that this unique fight was organised as a part of Jamaica’s 50th anniversary celebrations.
He noted that all the details for the fight are yet to be finalised, but he expects a conclusion soon.
