Kevin Ferguson Jr wasted no time in his MMA amateur debut last Friday, taking just 83 seconds to leave Tom Brink facedown on the canvas at Warrior Nation XFA XII.
Ferguson Jr, or ‘Baby Slice’, is the son of YouTube sensation, street fighting legend, and current Bellator MMA attraction Kimbo Slice, reports MMA Fighting.
And it’s safe to say that Kimbo would’ve been proud as Kevin threw heavy punches from the bout’s outset, eventually connecting with the fight-finishing blow in round one of his amateur debut with a solid KO, without Brink ever really landing a punch on the 23-year-old.
Ferguson Jr will undoubtedly carry significant hype with him throughout his fighting career – his legendary dad has over 1.4 million followers on Facebook, and is one of the most recognisable faces in his sport.
Only time will tell if Kevin can surpass his father’s legacy, but he seems to have got off to an absolute flyer, maybe one day he’ll even eclipse the big man.
Like father, like son.
