Kimbo was beaten by a tubby mma fighter by th name of Sean Gannon. His look and style are intimidating, but technically he's a novice. He has a terriffic chin and brutal punch, but in the UFC he'd be a shark fighting on land. (hope I didn't misquote)

ya your right and hes not going into UFC its some other event and i believe he is fighting a boxer under MMA rules and still most people think he will get beaten due to lack of conditioning and lack of training.

Oh yeah I forgot, he's fighting Ray Mercer under MMA rules. Mercer would KO him under any rules...

One of my faves. I have it on vhs and analyze it occasionally. Remember how methodical and precise Tommy looked for the first few rounds? He reminded me of a vintage Tyson slippin and weavin creating angles and openings. Mercer is one of the toughest Heavyweights to represent the US in the Olympics. After he weathered the onslaught he pinned Morrison on the ropes and started what looked like a brain damaging barrage that Morrison could not escape as he was stuck on the ropes!

I have gotten a good grasp on the double end bag now.... made not as good as most...but eitherway..
I find the slip bag (homemade) much more demanding... I loaded up an extra speedbag with sand...abotu 12 lbs... and I hit on that pretty well, meanwhile sliping it and throwing jabs at it... and combos. the weight makes it a great workout...

The maize bag is a terrific workout and equally taxing... The sway bag has the quicker return and therefore promote a bit more foot movement and slips. On the other hand, the maize bag has a longer deeper return and therefore gives you much room to freestyle and work off of dips. both great workouts.

I got it on video also. Remember he was the "john wayne" great white hope analogy. I actually had him winning that fight until Mercer caught him. The tide changed quickly, as can often happen with a power puncher like Mercer. In all honesty, Tommy may have been in a bit over his head with Mercer's experience. He should have had a few more tune up fights. Either way, he took a beating.....

Yeah, he's from Tulsa and claims to be the nephew of "The Duke". He appeared to have every attribute a Hvwt could want, except for a strong beard. Remember the beating he gave ole George Foreman? Mercer, on the other hand, is the definition of tough as nails. I've seen him against an unbeaten Vladimir Klitschko, and the beating he absorbed was nothing short of brutal. Even when he blocked the punch he would get shot into the ropes from the force. He never hit the canvas.
