Dada 5000, a street-fighter who infamously battled the late, great Kimbo Slice in the Bellator cage, is plotting a comeback. The Miami-based fighter, who starred in the 2015 documentary Dawg Fight, is looking for an opponent for a celebrity boxing match. From the sounds of it, he’s hoping this celebrity boxing match will serve as a warm-up for other fistic ventures down the road.
Dada 5000 shared his plans in a recent Instagram post.
