Honestly, I think Kimbo would be good in boxing. All he has to watch for is punches. I saw Gannon nail him with knees in that street fight and he took a beating and kept coming at him, although he ultimately lost the fight.
Kimbo can hit HARD. I like the guy, he was always very respectful to the fans, his opponents, and EliteXC. I think most people just hated him because EliteXC hyped him up so much. But it wasn't Kimbo saying anything like that, so there's really no reason to hate him. He trains hard and respects everything around the sport, and the opportunity presented to him. No hate for Kimbo. Best of luck.
