Kimbo Slice Destroys Ray Mercer!! In-Depth Blow-By-Blow

Coming off the heels of his destruction of Ray Mercer, Kimbo Slice showed both his supporters and his critics that he trained properly and was prepared to enter the cage last night at Cage Fury Fighting Championship 5, a mixed martial arts (MMA) competition ran by Felix Martinez of Atlantic City.
“I’m gonna get in there and do my best. I’m gonna give 110%. I’m not gonna sit down, I’m ready to bang it out you know” said Slice back in March when touchgloves.com sat down to interview him. And bang it out he did.


Slice entered the cage looking in better shape than we have previously seen. Weighing in at 239lbs, Slice was anticipating about 260lbs. for this fight as his normal weight is about 280lbs. His preparation and training was obvious.
Slice looked eager as he stared Mercer down before both fighters were introduced. Mercer, former heavyweight world champion looked calm and relaxed. However, the 46-yr-old did not look to be in the best physical shape weighing about 241lbs. With a stomach that would make Homer Simpson proud, it was clear which fighter was stronger.
The fighters came face-to-face both expressing their anxiousness to start, both talking to one another with clear angst. The bell rang and it was all Slice. Slice attacked Mercer pushing him against the cage. Neither fighter landed anything clear. Slice took Mercer down to the ground immediately. Both Slice and Mercer tried to land punches but neither connected with anything significant and both stood up once again.
Slice then put together an impressive series of Muay Thai knees which broke down the seemingly fatigued Mercer. Slice then put together combination punches to the head and body like a junior middleweight champion. The punches were coming too fast for Mercer to react and Slice finished off his combo with a series of vicious elbows.
Mercer was confused and couldn’t react while he was trying to protect himself from Slice’s barrage of punches. Slice reached down, and pulled Mercer’s legs once again going to the ground. Slice then put Mercer in a guillotine choke forcing Mercer to tap out at 3:50 seconds.
It took Slice only 1 minute and 10 seconds to dispose of Mercer.

  2. Pete Talanca says:

  3. JEFF says:

    Kimbo v. Tyson would attract a lot of attention. But who are we kidding. Let Kimbo fight some guys who can stil walk without help.

  5. Andrew says:

    Those mauy thai knees and punches/elbows were actually all blocked with the arms if you look closely. Mercer wasnt hurt or fatigued by those strikes, he covered up just as he has done in every boxing match he has ever taken part in and blocking and absorbing the opeining flurries, letting them punch themselves out. Just watch the opening of the shannon briggs fight, the vid is out there. He takes a barrage and then the other guy is tired and mercer is telling him to hit him again, shouting “come on”.
    kimbo was smart going for the legs to take him down, mercer could take those shots and kimbo would tire himself out then mercer would open up. Mercer threw one punch in the entire fight! Mercer was clearly expecting kimbo to be good to his interviews when he said he wanted to bang it out and come swinging, but Bas gave him the gameplan to go for ground from the start.

  6. Reji says:

    See you are all still makin excuses about how Kimbo won,before the match you were all sayin Ray Mercer was goin to knock him out,none of you sed he was passed it before the match! you ar e all still makin excuses up you r all jus sad as fuck! get a life n stop hatin Kimbo,hes mint! KIMBOS #1 FAN

  7. Pete Talanca says:

    I never said who would win the fight. All I am saying, is that I would like to see him fight someone who is more of a challange, not some over the hill guy.

  8. evilgenius says:

    some say mercer is goin to win then say oh hes just an over the hill fighter, now put kimbo up against someone stronger. the fact is that kimbo has fought bare knuckle for a long time. I would have to say he is pretty much “immune” to pain compared to most of the “pro” fighters. and you think mercer was just trin to wait kimbo out till he got tired? thats just lame, truth is he didnt have a clue wtf was goin on :) kimbo would have lasted alot longer than mercer i believe if it went any longer which it didnt :) so just let it go and admit that some guy “with no pro experience” “yeah right lol” came to mma and made mercer his bitch :P

    Kimbo vs. Cro Cop…..need say nomore……Fists vs. Feet……test of tests right there….or maybe Rampage Jackson….i dont understand why people enter the MMA ranks and fight people who have never had that experience. When i entered, i didnt want to fight former boxers, nor did i want to put restriction on my opponent (hence Tommy Morrison debut), I wanted to go all out..i wanted Ken Shamrock, Don Frye, Mark Colman……i wanted to know that if i got beat, there was real experience and things to learn from it. Just a thought……

  10. nick says:

    Kimbo can certainly fight in both MMa and in street, no question about it but he is most def not an unstoppable force who is gonna rule the heavyweight division..he wont even become a champion, put him in there with fedor who can def stand with him and if worst came to worst could just submit him. everyone has to tkeep in mind its mma not a streetfight that is just boxing which kimbo is famous for…and mercy is a fucking bitch who is way over his prime and who wansnt even a good fighter to start out with….and for the tyson shit everyones been saying..now he could prolly beat tyson but wen tyson was prime and a monster no chance in hell could a untechnical brawler streetfighter beat him….but im not hatin on kimbo i give him mad props for gonig into the mma and seeing what hes really made out of and maning up..but your not a chance with crocop, arlovski, fedor, nogueira.

  11. Dooch says:

    No promoter is going to set Kimbo up with a big name opponent until he proves himself. Give hime time, I think Kimbo may surprise some people. He obviously lacks some technique but he has heart and he isn’t afraid to mix it up. Another 6 to 9 months training and you’ll see a very handy fighter.

    fuck all you kimbo hater’s the man is a beast he fought young cats and old cats just give them man his props he can bang and he can go to the ground wit it ya just mad that it wasnt your favorite loser ass fighter debut and if it was he’ll bust they ass too. how bout that. o and i guess ya’ll think tank is over the hill too

    The thing people are not considering in this fight is the situation. Everyone is calling Mercer over the hill and not a challenger. How many years has he trained to just box. It’s just like potty training when your little. After a while you don’t piss yourself any more. Its just like boxing. When you train to only box that is what your all about. Kimbo is a bad some bitch but he has street experience. I’m sure everyone hear knows on the street anything goes, so Kimbo has a great advantage. He is younger and more fit. Mercer hasn’t boxed in 5 years and you have to admit there wasn’t much time for either to get to there best ability. I still say if it was a boxing match Mercer would have the upper hand for experience and he would have won, but it wasn’t. Mercer was not ready to get in the ring with that style of fighting, and Kimbo was. No one should dis Mercer, he is one of the greatest BOXERS. I know Kimbo din’t want to fist to fist the whole time, look at Mercer’s rep I know I wouldn’t. Kimbo played street smarts and if you can’t get them standing up get them when there down.

  17. Pete Talanca says:

    I think Kimbo would have his hands full with Tank. I would like to see that match.
    Kimbo can fight, but he’s no champion.

  18. Joe says:

    “Slice looked eager as he starred Mercer down before both ………” Dear Rayne Maiker. He starred him down?? Use spell check or a dictionary next time. It should be spelled stared. If you need me to check your grammar and edit your articles, just let me know. Lets not assume that all boxing fans are uneducated!!

  19. ddp says:

    i agree with all of you that mercer is over the hill and all that and everyone knows kimbo couldnt beat fedor or cro cop , but lets get serious , it was his first fight! , as if theyre going to put him against them , no fighter comes straight in and takes on a gun , so mercer was a good first up fight for him , it was a bigger test than the hacks on the street and he passed the test. Hes goin to continue to train and try and improve and Tank Abbot is a pretty crazy test for a guys second fight in the cage , even if tank isnt what he was . Not too many plp would take tank on fight two of mma after training for less than a year. If he beats tank convincingly then some plp here will have to give him some credit. Nobody is saying he can beat up the best , just that he is a raw exciting talent that seems to be improving and will be interesting to watch to see how he goes in his next couple of fights.

  20. Pete Talanca says:

    Well said ddp!!

  21. IN THE WORDS OF BRUCE LEE BELTS,BAGS AND DUMMYS,AND REP,S DON,T FIGHT BACK MERCER STEPED INTO THE CAGE NOT READY FOR THE CAGE
    AND GOT BEAT DOWN IF IN THE STREETS VIETNAM IRAQ OR THE CAGE
    YOU MUST KNOW THE FIGHT YOU ARE FIGHTING IF YOU EXPECT TO WIN!
    MMA IS THE REAL FIGHTING ART RIGHT NOW BECAUSE TYSON ECT MUST PROVE TO FIGHT AND BE A TOTAL FIGHTER KIMBO PROVED HE WAS A MORE COMPLETE FIGHTER MERCER JUST CAME FOR A CHECK HE ALSO GOT TKOED IN K1 1 BY REMY BOJANSKY THIS IS THE AGE OF REAL APPLICATION THATS WHY BJJ CAN NEVER DOMINATE A MASTER STRIKER CAN ALWAYS BEAT A BJJ GUY STANDING BUT IF HE HAS NO GROUND SKILLS JUST TAKE HIM DOWN! THE BJJ SHARKS WILL WIN IN THE WATER
    MMA RULES A STAND UP AND GROUND GUY 9-10 BEATS A STRIKER

  22. kingkimbo says:

    what would kimbo fight tyson so tyson can try to bite him and rape him lets be Serious kimbo would destroy tyson and don’t talk crap on the internet about kimbo til u can say it to his face

  23. whitey says:

    Seriously…first Kimbo fights an old boxer to prove himself and now Tank “can’t win a match to save his life” Abbot. About the only guy in the sport who hasn’t beat Tank is Kimbo. Tank has been the most overrated fighter in the whole sport since his debut. UFC pushed him because he’s a poster boy “bad a**”. He talks trash and thats about it.
    Kimbo doesn’t get to take on the top fighters…and why should he. But he sure can take on some up-and-coming fighters. There are plenty of them to go around. You want respect then fight someone worthy of it. I’m not saying Kimbo wouldn’t win against other fighters, but fighting Mercer and Abbott proves absolutely nothing.
    Kimbo is not the man…until he proves it!! Enough said!!! He lost to Gannon rembember. They were both gassing out(the common excuse for his loss). Gannon is a nobody, but he could take a punch and he knew how to mix it up on the ground.

    kingkimbo1 did you talk this “proverbial crap” to tyson’s face. I doubt it. This is what happens when someone gets in the spotlight…accept it

    Nobody gives Kimbo credit for knocking ‘Big D’s” eye out…THATS POWER!!…Kimbo will do just fine and get better and better the more he trains and fights mma!

  27. ??????? says:

    look people learn!
    as im sure kimbo will when he comes up against anyone decent-and to say fight mike tyson would be an instant DEATH sentance for kimbo,for not only was tyson 1 of the best fighters of all time,he was and still is one of the bad ass streetfighters of all time remember what he done to mitch green?
    first clean punch tyson lands its instant broken neck for kimbo-dont forget kimbo will want to trade with someone like tyson,to see who has the bigger balls.THAT WOULD BE HIS FATAL MISTAKE-AND PEHAPES HIS LAST!!!!!

  28. Anonymous says:

    kimbo is powerful but he doesn’t have stamina for a real pro, some of his punches missed an opponent completely, not very accurate, a real fighter is far better throwing conservative,accurate powerful punch than kimbo and who doesn’t throw punches wildly. if kimbo can learn to be like pros can successful.

  29. Anonymous says:

    first of all it is a complete insult to even think about comparing a non technical and extremely slow puncher like kimbo to MIKE TYSON which would put combinations of punches like no other boxer was capable of and would throw 4 PUNCHES in under a SECOND and if that is not enough he is THE GREATEST BOXER OF ALL TIME admitted by muhammed ali face to face in a interview. point is that MIKE TYSON will beat kimbo with his hands tied to his ankles.

  30. fredo says:

    kimbo is a good fighter very powerful.. bein a mma upcoming fighter myself wonders y kimbo is fighting young an old guys . …ask ur self y doesent he join ufc or pride fighting ??? well ??? i think kimbo wudnt b able 2 defend himself in 3rounds or 5rounds he’ll get tired an if som1 takes him down 2 the ground he wudnt knw wat 2 do but use his brut power an that wont take u that far in the ufc or pride ?? i would like 2 see kimbo in the ufc or pride against som1 his age an size then we can see if he is the best which many ppl think he is ?? how bout a rematch with the guy who beat kimbo sean cannon but dis time in a cage wit ufc rules everythang and let kimbo get a shot at redemption if he wants.. den u will see if kimbo can compete in big compation like ufc an pride..much love 2 kimbo hope he does well love 2 see his fights in the future ….

  31. Scott Matthews says:

    I think your forgetting it was his first fight, and he did well. Saying he has no stamina, no ground skill and couldnt handle 3-5 rounds is rubbish.
    He came in well under even what he expected weight wise, and is training with probably the best trainer in MMA, give the fella a break!

  32. MMA says:

    Kimbo is 1 tuff mother f@#$%@,but if he were to come up against a seasoned MMA expert then he would lose.Kimbo would not be able to handle the thigh/rib/head shin kicks,all you have to do is work on the front thigh the leg gets tired then go in for the kill with good combos of elbows/knees and fists and its all over red rover.
