No, Tyson could make a dent in Kimbo by knawing off his ear. That would be classic.

Here is the pattern,

Mike Tyson has lost 3 of his last 4.

James Thompson has lost 6 out of his last 8,

Bo Cantrell has lost 5 in a row,

And Tank Abbot has lost 8 out of his last 9.

This is the competition that Kimbo is beating.

I think it could cause a backlash of critisism because when Mike loses, every boxing fan will tell you the same.....

Mike is no good any more. It was a mismatch. Like the rest of Kimbo's fights.
you cant compare Tyson to any of those guys,

Firstly Tyson hasn't fought in MMA so hes boxing record does not count.

If Tyson joins MMA he will be the best heavyweight striker there is, the guy was a heavyweight champ for god sake.

Everyone knows he is nowhere near where he used to be, but with he experience in boxing you cant say he wont be the best stand up guy, Kimbo will ever face.

how can you say its a mismatch, kimbo is a freakshow just like like any of his opponents that he has faced. So facing Tyson would be his toughest challenge yet.

With that said, i wouldn't really want to see Tyson in MMA(by the look of him very much doubt he will anyways) apart from a fight with kimbo, just to see what would happen.

His record does count.

Hence the word "record"

Secondly because striking is his strong point and he's not doing that very well as of late.

As far as Mike being Kimbo's toughest challenge to date,
yeah you're right. But Mike still loses.

Looks like another win for Slice.

No his boxing record does not count in MMA. Hence "BOXING Record".

he isnt doing very as of late, but he is(or was) a Pro Boxer and the best pound for pound in his day, so his striking would be miles above Kimbos level.

And since kimbos strong point is his striking, it doesn't seem like a very good match up for him. But if it goes to the floor theres no doubt Kimbo will win.

His record speaks for his performance.

His record counts. But I believe that we are looking at different aspects of the issue.

The reason that I believe his record is a factor is because it is a sign of his decaying presence and skillset.

I beleive his record is a factor because his striking is his only attribute and he is no longer to be reconed with in that catagory.

More so, it's looking and sounding like he's stopped training as a fighter. It is hard to come back into top fighting shape to contend when you're over the 40 mark and have not been dedicated.

Besides when he was in shape, he did not fare very well in his last few outings. His record says so.

I hear you on the curiosity aspect of this fight.

I for one just want to see Kimbo thrown into the mix and fighting contenders since he is apparently one.

I saw some boxing at the bar last night, and during the fighter interviews after the main event, both Kimbo Slice and Gary Shaw were in the ring.

It makes sense. Alot of events are intertwined. I watched a boxing match last night on HBO and some guy I've never heard of was boxing on the card.

I saw a guy I'd bet the house on escorting him into the ring that looked like Kimbo. and when the announcer said "Gary Shaw" in the (promotion and brought to you by) spill I knew I was spot on.
