Kevin Ferguson Jr. got his nickname "Baby Slice" thanks to being the son of legendary fighter Kevin "Kimbo Slice" Ferguson. He has a lot to live up to, and we'll see what he can do when he will make his third attempt at a pro debut after two previously failed attempts.
#BabySlice will face Aaron Hamilton this weekend at Bellator 165 in a welterweight bout on the promotion's preliminary card.
Kimbo's son had two previously scheduled bouts cancelled by Bellator. The first due to an injury to Slice, the second due to his opponent missing weight by 17 pounds.
This third attempt at a debut was announced early Monday morning, less than a week before the November 19th card which is headlined by a Bellator lightweight championship fight between Michael Chandler Benson Henderson.
