Gary Goodridge appeared on Fight Network Radio and had some unpleasant things to say about Kimbo Slice and also indicated that he would be more than willing to fight Kimbo:
“‘Kimbo Slice’ is a 2008 version of ‘Mr. T,’” Goodridge told Fight Network Radio. “Was ‘Mr. T’ tough back then? No. Could he beat anybody back then? No, but he had the words, he had the lyrics, and he had the gold.”
“Don’t come out telling people that you’re ‘Street Certified,’ that you can walk on the streets and punch out anybody, any man … you’re not afraid of nobody,” Goodridge said. “Man, I know people that will put him down and spank his ass.”
“I would fight ‘Kimbo’ for free,” he said. “Make the fight up, and I will fight him for free just to show people that I could kick his ass. He can’t beat nobody. He don’t want to fight any of this.”
For free? I don’t think you want to get your ass whipped for free, do you Gary? Maybe take the road that Tank Abbott did and command $1,000 more than Kimbo just so you can say you got paid more than he did.
Seems like everyone’s coming out of the woodworks now and saying they’ll fight Kimbo. Kimbo gets some publicity for the EliteXC show and then all of a sudden everyone and their mother is trying to get a piece of him. As for a fight with Gary Goodridge? I’ll take Kimbo via TKO, round one. All day baby, all day.
