After his MMA career didn’t quite pan out, Kimbo has famously (or not-so-famously) moved on to working on a boxing “career”. In this clip, Slice faces Australian Shane Tilyard, who came into the fight with a 6-6 career record, lays a big combination on Slice that rocks him at the end of the first stanza. Another series to start the second round leads to Slice covering up his level of frustration and masking how very hurt he was by shooting for takedown, driving Tilyard across the ring. Fast forward to the 7:23 mark for the first takedown of Kimbo’s career.
Eventually, Slice goes on to level the Aussie with a body shot that KOs him, opening his record to 7-0 with 6 knockouts.
