Follwing up on our earlier report, Charles Hackmann met Kimbo Slice last night in a pro-boxing match at the Buffalo Run Casino in Oklahoma. Taking the fight on short notice, the Missouri native and instructor at PEAK Physique went the distance with Slice going four non-stop rounds with the UFC veteran, and had him against the ropes in the second round.
Hackmann is the first boxer to take Kimbo past the first round, let alone take him to a decision, which is even more amazing when you learn that Hackmann took this fight on extremely short notice, and only had his first pro-boxing bout last weekend (a fight which also went the distance, losing by decision). While his record may be 0-2 in boxing right now, the dude has serious heart, and it’s only a matter of time before those numbers turn in his favor.
On his facebook page, Charles wrote, “I have only been boxing three weeks and gave up over twenty pounds and took a fight with kimbo and went the distance with him and shocked all of oklahoma in the second when he broke my ribs. I wanted to take a knee but I thought of all of you and fought two more rounds thanks again you all mean a lot.” Charles also said Kimbo hit “like a truck,” but he pushed onwards to survive.
