‘Baby Slice’ Set for Second Pro Appearance vs. D.J. Griffin at Bellator 179 in London

By Tristen Critchfield May 5, 2017

Kevin Ferguson Jr., the son of the late Kimbo Slice, will return to action for his second professional fight against D.J. Griffin at Bellator 179.

The California-based promotion confirmed the catch-weight bout following an initial report from The Sun on Friday. Bellator 179 takes place at the O2 in London and is headlined by a welterweight duel pitting Rory MacDonald against Paul Daley. The evening’s main card will be televised on Spike beginning at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT.

“Baby Slice” made his pro debut at Bellator 165, where he was submitted at the 3:00 mark of round two by Aaron Hamilton. Griffin, meanwhile, will be making his first professional foray after compiling a 2-2 mark on the amateur circuit.

“I am so excited to get back to work and show the world how hard I've been grinding. “On a personal level, this fight means a lot to me,” Ferguson told The Sun. "Not only because I'll be making my Bellator main card debut but because I get to show the people in London how a Slice gets down.

“Just like Pop's told me, keep your guard up, and stand your ground — I'm going to Slice this Griffin guy up real bad.”
