Kimbo Slice Boxing Debut Opponent Announced
Fri, 15 Jul 2011
An opponent has been chosen for Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson's professional boxing debut on August 13 at the Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, Oklahoma, and he is Springfield, Missouri's James Wade (0-1).
The two will meet in the four-round heavyweight main event of a Gary Shaw Productions and Tony Holden Promotions night of boxing.
Wade lost his debut in January of this year, but will be looking to make history in his second fight.
"Just like in MMA, Kimbo Slice is walking around with bull's-eye on his back. His opponents know they can make themselves known to the world if they can take him out," said Jared Shaw, Team Kimbo Promotional Advisor. "To Kimbo it's a pro boxing debut. To James Wade, this is a world championship fight."
According to Shaw, Slice's goal in his first fight will be to prove with his performance that he always belonged in a boxing ring.
Tickets for the professional boxing debut of Kimbo Slice are priced at $38, $48 and $68 and are available through www.buffalorun.com.
