    even at heavyweight or cruiserweight, kimbo isnt fast or light enough on his feet for boxing IMO

    i cant really see him snapping the jab out there or evading punches like a boxer should

    you trained in it.. but never followed it?.. at all? ok lol i guess so, was only sayin..

    regardless kimbo has a better chance cardio wise in a 4 round 3min boxing match then in the octagon.. and being he has no real skills besides a decent ability to throw hands that's his best bet, i dont think its unreasonable to say he'd knock a few low level fighters out, he'd never become a mid-tier boxer though ill admit that, thats when he'd start catchin trouble.. maybe a few wins, but more losses

    Kimbo would be a shit boxer. No technique, minimal power.

    People go on and on about Kimbo's hands, but who the fuck did he KO or even really rock? Those hands faded long ago.

    Still fights for him on the circuit with guys like cabbage and butterbean.

    Wouldn't wish Minowaman on my worst enemy though.

    He doesn't have the gas tank or skill to make for an entertaining decision.

    Kimbo's marketability is the big power in his hands. But we've never seen it. Mitrione even said he expected Kimbo's punches to be harder.

    Kimbo's one selling point is fraudulent. I like the dude, but his one pro doesn't actually exist.

    Kimbo is in it to "get his bread", period.

    Seriously, when was the last time that anyone made a decent pay-day from a four round boxing match?

    he was just a fresh of breathe air in the world of mma. its the classic american dream approach..from a streetfighter straight to the octagon..many people wanted to see kimbo suceed, including dana white..hes been given chance after chance to prove himself as a legit mixed martial artist..but he just couldnt live up to the hype, a hype of which is totally innocent for.
    but hes getting paid..which is his goal to provide for his family, so he did not fail there.

    Good point from both you and Unbroken.

    For that reason, I doubt he'll go to boxing, unless Don King or some like-minded greedy jackass decides he can make a decent payday off him (which is within the realm of possibility).

    WWE is probably his best ticket to the money though...

    how was that his appeal? who did he knock out? tank abbot??

    guys on the street nobody knows?

    his KO hype was a myth from the beginning, cant believe everyone buys into it
    whats funny is they never said hes gonna knock people out like that, they just say his strength is standup

    the more mma fights he gets buried in..the more is his overall status and worth diminishing,we dont really want a 2nd tank abbott..he just doesnt have the athletic ability/talent to be a good fighter..hes all heart but very little skill
