VIDEO | Kimbo Slice, 38, KOs Latest, Keeps Undefeated Boxing Streak Alive Against Another Forgettable Opponent


Oft-maligned former UFC heavyweight fighter Kimbo Slice continued his undefeated streak in professional boxing over the weekend, knocking out the unheralded Jesse Porter in 36 seconds in a fight held inside the Lucky Star Casino in Concho, Oklahoma.

Slice (5-0 boxing, 4-2 MMA) began peppering Porter (3-5 boxing) with left and right hooks soon after the bell rang, eventually landing an uppercut that floored the listless fighter.

Slice’s victory Saturday comes in the wake of the controversy surrounding his last fight, a fourth-round knockout victory over MMA fighter Brian Green. Green made his professional boxing debut against Slice, dominated the fight, and then somehow got knocked out in the waning seconds of the final round. Many fans considered the fight fixed, though Green vehemently denied that he would ever throw a fight.

Slice has largely become an afterthought in the fighting world since the glory days of his YouTube fights, where he defeated all his opponents save one, Boston police officer and MMA fighter Sean Gannon (2-1 MMA), who also competed at UFC 55.

Fighting fans have to a great extent been underwhelmed by Slice’s transition from Internet sensation to professional fighter. After going 3-1 in EliteXC, Slice competed on The Ultimate Fighter 10, where he lost an exhibition bout to Roy Nelson and beat Houston Alexander at the TUF 10 Finale. A later TKO loss to Matt Mitrione at UFC 113 saw Slice released from the UFC for good.

One can’t help but wonder where Slice goes from here. While his undefeated boxing record is commendable, he hasn’t fought what many would consider to be recognizable opponents. And at 38 years old and with arthritis in his knee, it’s unclear if Slice will ever regain the stature he once had.

  1. Totes Magotes says:

    Is David Tua still an active professional boxer?

  2. Not You says:

    Because everyone knows your early pro years in ANY combat sport should be against the highest calibre competition. SMH.

    • Greg says:

      Early years? Dude’s 38 and has been fighting since at least 2003. Come on, these people are hand picked, and he barely beat the last one…

      • Not You says:

        Just because he’s been fighting since 2003 doesn’t mean he’s been a professional boxer. Sure, you could throw him in with huge names do he could get beat up constantly. Or you can do what all people making their professional boxing debut and fight people with comparable records to a new comers 0-0. Amature boxers fight with head gear on, it’s not like MMA where it’s the same all the way from amature to pro.

  3. McLovin says:

    Where’s the video?

  4. Joegun says:

    Tua? That’s a name that’s been under a rock for awhile,that guy was bad ass bak in the day.as for kimbo his mma window is almost shut n locked. Not enough ground game to hang with top guys. But a legend on the streets.

  5. jbeamazing says:

    And this guy couldn’t out box Matt Mitrione lol his last fight looked WWE scripted

  6. The outlaw says:

    Honestly I think all he fights are rigged

  7. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    I don’t see the video on the mobile version of BJPenn.com

  8. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    Are all of his opponents taking dives?…. This looks so fake.

    • James says:

      They may just all suck.

      • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

        I bet Kimbo has the worst endurance of any boxer which is why his fights are fixed, ending in the 1st rd. Look at Tyson’s first 20 fights nearly all 1st round KO’s and compare to Kimbo’s. People look a certain way when they are KO’ed LOL

  9. Barbadoes Slim says:

    They should just throw his old ass against one of the Klistcho bros. It would be more for my entertainment seeing him try and KO one of those fools. Vitali or Vladmir would love the chance at him with his big head perfect target for their jab
