The real winner is the promoter who dreamed up this freak show
Mike Tyson versus Secretariat.
Kevin Ferguson AKA Kimbo Slice versus Merciless Ray Mercer.
Considering Kimbo is neither a trained grappler nor a trained boxer, and considering Ray Mercer has at least fought in a legitimate MMA competition before, the only way Kimbo possibly takes this one is if Ray Mercer is just so slow and old that he gets beaten to the punch (pardon the pun). Anyone with a little training and the ability to take a punch like everyone knows Mercer has ought to be able to beat the most talented street fighter out there, but Id be lying if I didnt want to buy the pay-per-view of this freak show.
My prediction: Bob Sapp by KO in the first round.
My real prediction: A boring pseudo-fight in which Kimbo doesnt want to be embarrassed by an old man and Mercer doesnt want to be knocked out by someone with no real fighting skills. Expect lots of groping and hugging, and a lame decision at the end unless someone (Kimbo) does something stupid.
