EXCLUSIVE: Charles Hackmann open to Kimbo Slice rematch

Kimbo Slice

Charles Hackmann believes that former street fighter and MMA star Kevin ‘Kimbo Slice’ Ferguson will find it difficult to gain a foothold in boxing after his switch from a series of disciplines far removed from the art of pugilism.

The 25 year-old currently works at Peak Physique as a personal trainer. He caught Slice with a few swingers in the second round of their contest en route to a points loss.

Hackmann thinks that Slice may struggle against some of the more prominent names in the division.

“It was only my second fight last night,” explained Hackmann to World Boxing News.

“I’m new to boxing and still learning – but he hits like a truck, and he is one tough dude.

“I believe that he has got a long way still and he is also new to sport but boxing is different and a fight against the likes of the Klitschko brothers is probably way too tough for him.”

Slice, 37, may now seek out a rematch with Hackmann in an attempt to score a knockout against every opponent he has to face.

But when probed on whether he would accept, the Missouri-based fighter said: “Yeah, if I was asked to I would.”
