Kimbo Slice’s Career
Kimbo Slice was born in the Bahamas, but his family moved to the United States. Therefore, he grew up in Florida with his two brothers. For his elementary education, Kimbo was admitted to Bel-Air Elementary School. He, then, went to Richmond Heights Middle School, and Miami Palmetto High School. Kimbo did his higher studies from Bethune-Cookman University and the University of Miami.
The first profession that Kimbo joined was in a strip-club as a bouncer. He was offered the job of a Limousine driver and a bodyguard for RK Netmedia, which is a pornography promotion/production company, based at Miami. In 2003, he started off as an informal street fighter, the videos of which went viral on internet rapidly. His first fight with Big D gave him the name of “Slice” as he left a large cut on Big D’s right eye. Kimbo cleverly merged “Slice” with his childhood name “Kimbo”, and became Kimbo Slice from Kevin Ferguson.
In 2005, Kimbo started to get trained as a MMA fighter at the Freestyle Fighting Academy under Avellan brothers. He was trained in the techniques of street boxing, dirty boxing from the clinch, focusing on bare knuckle techniques, and elbows. He made his debut against former Olympic gold-medalist boxer and WBO Heavyweight champion, Ray Mercer, in 2007. In 2010, Kimbo planned to take up boxing as his professional career and debuted in 2011. In his debut match, he fought against former Sumo wrestler- Shinichi Suzukawa.
