Last night, on a card promoted by Gary Shaw Productions and Tony Holden Promotions at the Buffalo Run

Casino in Miami, Oklahoma, Street Certified fighting legend Kimbo Slice made a very impressive debut in

professional boxing, as he knocked opponent James Wade completely unconscious with a right

hook/uppercut in just 10 seconds.





Slice, the former MMA star who gained notoriety with his brutal You Tube-posted street fights, moved his

record to 1-0, 1 KO with a punch that left poor Wade draped over the bottom rope like linguine. Paramedics

and on-site medical staff were able to revive Wade after a few minutes.


Reminiscent of the "hookercut" that made former heavyweight contender Razor Ruddock famous, Slice

brought a half hook/half uppercut to the chin of Wade and he was out before he hit the canvas. "I don't feel

like I got completely under the punch," said a humble slice, post-fight. "I don't give myself a good

performance in there, but I'm serious about making a run in boxing and I'm headed right back to camp in



The crowd in attendance would disagree with Slice's evaluation, as they went absolutely insane at the

awesome display of power.


"They love him here," said promoter Gary Shaw. "His ring entrance music was drowned out completely by

their cheering. It really made for an exciting atmosphere. That's the electricity Kimbo brings when he fights."


Slice says he enjoyed his time in Miami, Oklahoma, and wishes to give back for their hospitality. "I was

touched by the community and my heart went out to Joplin, Missouri, so I'm donating a portion of my purse

to the relief fund."


Slice says he's ready to go whenever advisor Jared Shaw says. His next scheduled fight will be on October

15. The site is still being determined.


In undercard action, surging heavyweight prospect Franklin Lawrence of Indianapolis moved his record to

16-2, 11 KOs with a first-round stoppage (2:31) of Arkansas journeyman Marcus Rhode.
