Hackmann goes the distance with Kimbo

Phil Jay 31/12/2011

Street-fighting legend Kevin ‘Kimbo Slice’ Ferguson scored his third win in the professional boxing ring last night as he went the distance for the first time in his short career against Charles Hackmann.

Slice, who turned pro in August, took the four-rounder 39-37 as his opponent frustrated him and enjoyed a good second round, rocking Slice back on the ropes as he looked tired.

Hackman failed to land anything substantial in the following rounds but can hold his head up high after becoming the first boxer to go past the first round against the brawler from Miami.

Fitness trainer Hackmann was expected to be blown out in Kimbo’s usual first-round fashion, but the Peak Physique lead coach hung in there and used his know how to hear the final bell.
