Kimbo Slice continues to train hard for his next opponent as he is scheduled to fight in Newark, New Jersey on May 31st. James "The Colossus" Thompson will be Kimbo’s next test in the cage and this time it will be on national television–CBS.
Kimbo recently had an interview with mmanews.com and he had a few things to say about his overall training and preparation for this next event. Here’s a snip from the Miami-based streetfighter himself:
"I never under estimate any of my opponents. James Thompson
is a well rounded fighter. He has great ground work and he is not afraid to
stand and bang. He has the ability to knock out his opponent and I’m prepared
for that. If it goes to the ground I have a lot of tools that I’m dying to use
so I’m also looking forward to a good ground game."
Regarding his training:
“Bas Rutten and Randy Couture. They are the only two guys I
train with and I have been training with them since the beginning of my career
and I wouldn’t change them for anything. Those are my guys…I probably wouldn’t
have won any of my fights if it had not been for those two guys.”
