Tank Abbot on Kimbo Slice- "I'm going to put my fist between his eyes"

Recent Interview from ProElite.com with Legendary MMA Fighter Tank Abbot talks about his training for his upcoming fight with Boatyard Brawler turned MMA fighter Kimbo Slice.


I have to say Tank Looks to be taking this fight pretty seriously. He's down to 258 and training pretty hard.

And as always he's humorous.

I have to see this fight. It's just a must see.
I have no prediction for this fight at all I just want to see it.

I wonder how much he can shed with 10 weeks left maybe we were all taking Tank lightly, I still want to know what EliteXC will do if he wins because Kimbo is supposed to be the next big thing.

It's wierd to see Tank Abbott training in a gym, usually he trains in the bar.

Tank's a cool guy, though, and I hope he beats Kimbo down. It'd be a nice bit of nostalgia.

As for Tank's conditioning, he looks like he's working hard for this fight, and I'm glad to see that. The fight with Gary Turner was ridiculous. Tank isn't known for his cardio, but he gassed after about 35 seconds in that fight, and that was ridiculous.
