Kimbo Slice, the Miami street fighter, was belle of the ball in Los Angeles during open media workouts on Thursday. He was prepping for his Oct. 4 fight against Ken Shamrock on CBS and sat down with L.A.'s Jim Hill.
Shamrock did a lot of trash talking during last week's teleconference and said he was going to break bones in less than three weeks.
"He says he's gonna break my leg. If I breaks my my leg, I can't play with my kids. That cant happen," said Kimbo. "Losing is not an option."

Kimbo does a nice job of countering the notion that he's a street thug. He speaks about six kids and trying to live up to a certain image. The answer was prompted by Hill calling him "The Face of MMA." That might be a stretch. Hill followed the same tact he did in the Gina Carano interview that we posted earlier in the day. He presents the notion that fighters do this to beat people up.
"Listen to me closely boys and girls, only because he wants to inflict harm on me," said Kimbo. "I'm a cool guy. I have a lot respect for all the fighters in the sport."
