The New Fight Of The Century

That's right there's a new fight of the century coming. This time the ultimate question of mma vs boxing will be decided once and for all in a boxing match by the only two warriors who every really could.

I predict that Kimbo wins by guillotine choke.

Kimbo Slice Open to Fighting Toney, Not Impressed With His MMA Debut

Leading up to UFC 118, James Toney told anyone who wanted to listen that he asked to fight Kimbo Slice (after his first request of facing Brock Lesnar was turned down) in his Octagon debut. Unfortunately for him, the organization had different plans and matched the boxing champion against Randy Couture.

You all know how that turned out for "Lights Out."

But when Slice stopped by Monday's edition of The MMA Hour, he said he had never been offered a fight against Toney, but was certainly open to the idea.

"I never heard anything about me fighting James Toney, but you know, like I said, again, I'll fight anybody, man. C'mon, everybody knows that about me from my street-fighting days. Put anybody in front of me, train me to be the best, I'll fight the best. That's one thing about Kimbo Slice that everybody knows."

Slice has teamed up with his old MMA promoters, Gary and Jared Shaw, to try his hand at boxing. Jared Shaw recently told MMA Fighting that he hopes to see Slice make his "Sweet Science" debut later this year.

As for Toney's MMA debut, Slice said he was surprised at how poorly Toney performed against Couture.

"Yeah, kinda. I was [surprised]. I would have sprawled out," Slice said while chuckling.

Despite his lackluster MMA debut, Toney still believes he can be a force in the UFC, and there's no question that he would take an opportunity to fight the man he calls "Simba" Slice.

Oh, and if you are wondering if that nickname bothers Slice, it doesn't.

"No, it don't bother me, man. That sh-- don't bother me. I'm a grown man.

"That's how they do it. That's part of the game. They can talk sh-- all they want to, but when we face-to-face, they ain't going to do that. I'm not a sh---talker. Never have been, never will be."

Street fighter-turned MMA star Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson now has his sights set on making his debut as a professional boxer, and the Miami-stationed fighter already has a grudge match brewing in the boxing world. Slice recently appeared on the latest episode of MMAFighting.com's The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani and responded to verbal jabs thrown by pro-boxer James "Lights Out" Toney, who recently tried and failed to make a successful UFC debut.
Toney, who was thoroughly trounced by MMA legend Randy "The Natural" Couture in his MMA debut August 28th at UFC 118, had called Slice out when it was first announced that the decorated boxer would be joining the UFC's roster. Slice was released from the UFC before a match between the two crossover stars could materialize but the Bahamian told Helwani that he would be open to meeting Toney on his home turf.

"I never heard anything about me fighting James Toney, but you know, like I said, again, I'll fight anybody, man," said Slice. "C'mon, everybody knows that about me from my street-fighting days. Put anybody in front of me, train me to be the best, I'll fight the best. That's one thing about Kimbo Slice that everybody knows."

It is unclear whether or not Toney will return to MMA, though he has stated that he will, but as it stands Slice has enjoyed more success in the MMA world than Toney. Slice fought twice officially for the UFC, dominating Houston Alexander and coming up short against Matt Mitrione; though he was far from a world-beater, Slice said even he would have been able to avoid the seldom-seen low singe leg takedown that signaled the beginning of the end for Toney at UFC 118
