Kevin Ferguson is back in the gym

by:  Jack Bratcher

We all know what happened on Oct. 4 in Sunrise Florida when an enormously inflated persona named Kimbo Slice went into the ring with Kevin Ferguson as his own shadow. This shadow was everything Ferguson was not; it was the hype, the media, the uneducated, it said he was one of the best in the world, a top ten fighter. But it was only a shadow that disappeared as soon as the light of Seth Petruzelli’s experience shown upon it.

Wouldn’t it be nice if that shadow known as Kimbo Slice never came back but rather the man, Kevin Ferguson emerged from those ashes like a phoenix rising, or at the very least like a blackbird fluttering? Let it die man. Let the myth of Kimbo die like so many fairy-tales. Let it die like when a kid finally discovers Santa Claus is a farce and your parents lied to you for years. Sure, you’re mad at your parents for lying but at least now you know the truth. Sure, Kimbo is dead but at least now the truth of Kevin Ferguson can live.

Gokhan Saki – K-1 Cinderella Man

by:  Cory Brady

K-1 put on another highly entertaining show Saturday night with the USA Grand Prix from Honolulu, Hawaii. For those unfamiliar with the K-1 GP elimination format it is set up as follows. Eight fighters fight in quarterfinal bouts, the four winners of those matches advance to a pair of semifinals where the winners of those bouts clash at the end of the night in the final.

In the first GP bout of the night, 6’1″ slugger Mighty Mo took on 6’9″ behemoth Justice Smith. This bout was a somewhat sloppy affair that saw Mighty Mo receiving flagrant knees to the groin and headbutts from an extremely akward Justice Smith. Mo seemed frustrated with Smith’s antics and was able to mount enough offense in the form of wild power punches to win a majority decision.
