Tommy would embarrass him.

yeah but it would let Tommy get in the news again and try to get his HIV crusade more press. But it would be a fight that would bring in more than fighting cans

Disagree with people who say he can go further in boxing then mma.... Kimbo was actually probably ranked top 50 in mma at one point.... No chance of that in boxing... Hate to say it but there is a much deeper talent pool

I agree with everything you said, because you are right.

Still, the heavyweight division is so lame right now when it comes to Americans that if Kimbo could find a way to be that shining star then who am I am to tell him no?

For his sake, I hope he at least gets a couple more good paydays.
I was at the MMA shop in the Hooter's Casino in Vegas a few weeks ago. I saw a Kimbo shirt and laughed and said to the guy "I'll bet it's hard to sell these now that Kimbo is a proven joke?" He seemed kind of offended and said, "Actually, they sell really well." There are always going to be plenty of tools who think Kimbo is unbeatable although he's EASILY been exposed.
