Former YouTube Star and UFC Heavyweight Kimbo Slice continued his undefeated professional boxing career this weekend with a victory when he knocked out the unheralded Jesse Porter in 36 seconds in a fight held inside the Lucky Star Casino in Concho, Oklahoma.
Slice (5-0 boxing, 4-2 MMA) began peppering Porter (3-5 boxing) with left and right hooks soon after the bell rang, eventually landing an uppercut that floored the out matched Porter.
Fight fans have for the most part been disappointed by Kimbo’s transition from Internet sensation to professional fighter. After debuting in EliteXC, and going 3-1 Slice then competed on The Ultimate Fighter 10, where he lost an exhibition bout to Roy Nelson and beat Houston Alexander at the TUF 10 Finale. He followed that up with a TKO loss to Matt Mitrione at UFC 113 and was released from the UFC for good.
