Kimbo Slice wobbled twice en route to another KO win

Phil Jay 30/01/2013

Former Backyard brawler Kevin ‘Kimbo Slice’ Ferguson survived a scare on his way to a sixth knockout in seven wins after halting a game Shane Tilyard in the second round at the Sydney Entertainment Centre in Australia.

The 38 year-old was caught with numerous shots as defence went out the window for the two heavyweights and almost touched the canvas on two occasions in an even first round.

Slice always had the power to trouble his opponents, which makes him the exciting fighter he is a today and after a crushing body shot in the second session, Tilyard, 26, was visible wincing as he took a knee count for the full ten.

Bahaman-born Kimbo is certainly not in the ilk to challenge the top fighters in the division, although the ex-MMA fighter keeps the crowds enthralled as he blitzes his way through all who oppose him in the ring so far.
