Former UFC Fighter Kimbo Slice Wins Pro Boxing Debut in 10 Seconds

Former UFC and EliteXC heavyweight Kimbo Slice (whose given name is Kevin Ferguson) made a successful debut into the world of boxing, winning his first fight in just 10 seconds on Saturday night.

Taking on 0-1 fighter James Wade in his first foray into the boxing ring, Slice cracked his opponent early and just a moment later he was falling backwards and crashing to the floor.

That was all it took and Wade was out.

The former “Ultimate Fighter” competitor took several months off after leaving the UFC, but always aspired to get back into combat sports and started working towards a career in boxing.

Kimbo’s former boss at EliteXC, Gary Shaw, promoted the bout, which took place in Oklahoma.

Following his successful debut, Kimbo will take his next boxing fight on Oct. 15, according to Team Kimbo advisor Jared Shaw.
