    First off let me say right away that I'm not trying to bring any Kimbo crap/contreversy to the boxing forum on Sherdog.

    I'm a casual boxing fan so I thought I'd get some perspective from longer time fans of the sport. I'm watching the Junior MW fight right now between Alfred Angulo and Richard Gutierrez and right away one of the things I noticed was that Kimbo came out with Angulo who I assume is promoted by Shaw.

    What I wanted to ask was what do people think about having someone like Kimbo whos partially known as a streetfighter training MMA coming out with a boxer that Shaw manages into the ring?

    Ninja gotta eat.

    Naw for real though, part of it, I think, is just getting more exposure/promotion for Shaw and his new "breh" winner.

    Kimbo comes to a lot of fights in Vegas. No worries.

    I give Kimbo some credit. He has an epic beard. You can make a home for a few baby robins. That would be cool to have a birds nest in your beard. Awesome.

    Kimbo should have a boxing event clause in his contract.

    Something like this:
    "Show your @ss at every major boxing event, and get your face on cam, look crazy as possible"

    Kimbo can swing a gang of boxing fans towards MMA, and start a generational trend that will eventually undermine boxing's market share in relation to MMA. Especially among demographics who don't really f#@k with MMA all that much to this point.

    Course, dude sucks as a fighter, but still.
    Let him make his $$$ as the ultimate MMA shill hype man.

    Getting exposure to MMA is good thing for Boxing fans or anyone, but what happened on CBS last Saturday probably had a reverse effect, or at least, not the great mainstream coming out party that Shaw and MMA itself intended.
    But I agree that the sports are always interlocked on some level, being prizefight sports.

    There is no
