    It looks like we agree with each other. In terms of what "suits him," I'm just looking at it in terms of success rate as opposed to what skill he has.

    I agree to agree.

    EDIT: Although I think he has the chance to have a bit more success in boxing than in MMA. I mean his hype train was destroyed by a last minute third rate replacement Petruzelli and just barely managed to win a hand picked super one dimensional Alexander before getting knocked out of MMA for good by Mitrione who is at best a top-20 fighter. Not exactly top of the line material right there.

    I don't know too much about the boxing world though, so I have no clue what the equivalent of those guys is in that side of the fence.

    He might be able to pick up more wins in boxing as long as he keeps fighting cans, entry-level fighters, and guys who are smaller than him. If a freak situation occurs where he might have to fight a more experienced last-minute replacement, he should turn that fight down this time.

    Management issues aside, I think Kimbo's worth about as much as a boxer as he is a mixed martial artist. Something to keep in mind is that the guys he's fighting in boxing are training solely in punching, so his strength is their strength too.

    I wasn't trolling this time. There's a lot of paid losers out there, which is obviously the 2-4 Bledsoe's role in boxing. Either way, don't really care, it was an awesome highlight that's going to be hard to top.

    This one goes the distance. Hackmann is also an MMA fighter.

    Well there you go, now we know Kimbo's limit. I think he can and will get just a little better. But there it is, let's hope he'll stay at this level of competition.

    In the history of Boxing there have been guys with comparable skills and talent level that have managed to scrounge up a title fight for one of the minor-league belts.
    It all depends on his management, but he has to keep winning. You build up a 15-0 record with a couple of wins over some has-beens and you never know.
    If I was training him, the first thing I would do is get him to develop a jab.

    No belt is worthy of The Kimbo.
