Kimbo Slice, who made a name for himself as a street-fighter and competed on season 10 of The Ultimate Fighter, earned a win in his professional boxing debut Saturday night.
Slice, who went 1-1 in the UFC before being released, scored a knockout of James Wade in just 10 seconds in Oklahoma.
Jared Shaw, a member of Slice’s promotional team, said they are already looking at the new opportunity to get him in the ring.
“We realize this is a climb, and Kimbo is serious about making a run in this sport,” Shaw said. “Before you can walk, you crawl. Before you reach the roof, you climb, and that is what we are doing. We are working our way through the division and plan to matriculate up the rankings.”
Shaw mentioned a possible date of October 15 for Slice to return to action.
“We thank all the fans and MMA loyalists that continue to follow Kimbo’s career,” Shaw said. “We hope MMA can respect boxing and boxing can respect MMA.”
