CHATSWORTH, Calif. - Mixed martial arts fighter Kimbo Slice, a bodyguard for Miami-based porn producer Reality Kings, will fight Tank Abbott on Showtime this Saturday, Feb. 16 at 10 p.m.
"Kimbo was the big hit of the show at the Reality Kings booth during AEE," said sales rep Howard Levine. "Everybody is excited to see him destroy Tank Abbott in this fight."
Born Kevin Ferguson, the 28-year-old Kimbo gained a large following as an underground street fighter. His brutal fights have become popular downloads on YouTube and other sites.
The bout with Abbott is expected to raise Kimbo's profile considerably, but the fighter isn't hiding his association with Reality Kings. The company is sponsoring him in the fight, and Slice will be sporting the RK logo on his trunks.
