Kimbo Slice for whatever reason has backed out of his scheduled fight against Alexander Ustinov and officially replaced by longtime fringe heavyweight contender Chauncy Welliver. That would be Saturday, December 11th at the Dynamo Palace of Sports, Moscow
Be interesting to see Ustinov against any number of American contenders, but there’s a reason both Tyson Fury and now Kimbo Slice backed out of fights with him as he’s very high risk and low reward, the kiss of death for otherwise worthy fighters of every era going back to the beginning of time.
What was going to be a fairly high profile fight of contrasts might well still be a decent fight from a technical perspective with the blubbery Welliver lasting longer, but the end result looks just as inevitable as the Kimbo fight with Welliver to be knocked out. The 38 year old Ustinov has been a credible top 20 contender who’s time is quickly running out and such will be the hope of the 31 year old Welliver who is quite experienced at 55-9-5 with 22 KOs, that youth and experience will be served.
