I think speculating is just that. I've seen much fishier KOs.

I watched the fight and I thought Kimbo was winning as well. The knock out didn't seem suspect to me either. It looks like Green was hurt and tired and got caught with a short uppercut to me.

I share the popular opinion though because I think he would have had more success knocking out pro MMA guys in the "minor leagues" than he ever will in pro boxing.

I've seen fishier but that was odd. Kimbo looked really tired (as usual) and landed some decent shots on Green that didn't seem to bother Green at all and then a short uppercut completely KTFO Green? It happens but it does make me wonder. We know Kimbo has been involved in rigged stuff before.

I think he just flat out doesn't want there to be a chance that he can be taken down.

This, Green took the fight on like a week notice.

Kimbo's knees are absolutely shot, any kick or TD and he's pretty much f*cked.....his hands are the best thing about him so boxing really should've been the first choice IMO.

Also I know it's mostly jokes but Kimbo is gonna get f*cked up hard when he fights anyone even semi legit....his 4 fights were against 2 debut "pro's", a cruiserweight and a MMA middleweight (Green).

Kimbo's boxing skills are about the same as all those dudes that got fed to ButterBean around his time as the "King of the Four Rounders". Now, that is probably about where they should be at this point in his career, but he is old as hell to start making his way through 20 or so tomato cans. By the time he is ready for any decent competition, his body is going to be shot. The guy is an interesting figure and seems like a legit nice guy, buy his time in this sport will not be long.

I wish he would of stuck with mma, he seemed to of progressed really well, but I guess the mitrione fight ****ed his legs up a little too much. I think if he had maybe 4 more fights out of the ufc, he could at least started to make a name for himself with all the hardcore fans and who knows, maybe he could of come back, probably not but his chances were better there than they are in boxing. Isn't he nearing 40 right now?

I dont think hes gonna take the route of a young time boxer....he is probably gonna take 10-12 of these pro debut/undersized guys and then fight someone with some good name recognition to make a decent payday.

Yeah his knees are absolutely shot, anyone who can throw a decent leg kick or shoot for a good TD would beat him easily....I never understood why he didn't go straight to boxing as that was his only real skill set when he first came to the game.

having arthritis in your knees makes that quite logical. Boxing is the perfect sport for him, stand still, swing away. He's got massive hands and a solid chin.

That looked like a combination of a punch to the temple and a punch to chin. Though it did look like a slow punch I've seen slower punches in the UFC take fighters out. Then again this is Gary Shaw we are talking about in terms of promotions.
