Kevin Ferguson – a.ka. Kimbo Slice – had his third professional boxing bout last night. Kimbo took on Charles Hackman, who appeared to be making his boxing debut. Hackman did what neither of Kimbo’s first two opponents could do – he went the distance. From World Boxing News:
Slice, who turned pro in August, took the four-rounder 39-37 as his opponent frustrated him and enjoyed a good second round, rocking Slice back on the ropes as he looked tired.
Ah ha… so is Kimbo not the monster that his two first round knockouts imply? Or is Charles Hackman a natural ready to shoot up the ranks of the heavyweight division and challenge the Klitschko brothers? Only time will tell. Personally, I just think Hackman is the real deal.
