Kimbo Slice (Kevin Ferguson) Mini Biography

Kimbo Slice was born February 8, 1974 in the Bahamas, Nassau. His birth name is Kevin Ferguson. However, he grew up  and went to school in Cutler Ridge Florida. He was a foot ball player at his High School: Miami Palmetto High School and later, even tried out for the Miami Dolphins, though he didn’t quite make the team. I suppose this was not in the cards for Kimbo Slice.

After a year and a half of college he left and began working as a bouncer for a strip club. Later on he hooked up with his old friend, Mike Imber, also known as “Icey” and he offered him a job as a bodyguard for the company RK Metmedia. All these jobs, after all were suitable if not much too perfect for the stalky and well built, Kimbo Slice, though little did he know that his whole future would be a product of a back yard fight.

In 2003 Kimbo Slice fought for the first time on tape which quickly saturated the internet with tapes of back yard, street fighting fights. Kimbo Slice told “The backyard was a location that was picked.”  I suppose he meant it could have happened anywhere…Well, needless to say, that first back yard fight became epic, so much that he moved on to MMA Fighting.
