    King Mo Lawal has boxing clause in his contract, would like a fight with Kimbo Slice - Bloody Elbow

    Mo isn't content to stop with just a tournament win and his new career as a professional wrestler. After Martinez News-Gazette boxing columnist Mark Ortega (Follow him on Twitter: @MarkEOrtega) told me that he was told by Mo that he had a boxing clause in his contract and was possibly interested in a bout with Kimbo Slice, I asked our own Stephie "Crooklyn" Daniels (follow her on Twitter also! @CrooklynMMA) to follow up.

    On his contract:

    I got a boxing clause in my contract. I just gotta get through this tournament and be healthy. Bjorn said that he was going to get me fights. But the thing with the contract is that we gotta agree on the opponent. But someone like Kimbo Slice? I'd be alright. We could hype that up, they can get behind me...
    I think King Mo vs. Kimbo Slice would be a good boxing match. I got good training, he's got good training. I want to make it happen. So my main goal is to get through this tournament, win it, defend it, defend the belt once or twice and after that get that fight with Kimbo.

    That's why I've been training with Jeff Mayweather so hard. Trying to get my boxing skills up. I think me vs. Kimbo would be a good fight. We could put it on Spike TV or something!
    More on why he would like to fight Kimbo:

    I
    like Kimbo Slice, I like what he's doing. I like the fact that he crossed over to boxing and he's actually training and he's going out there and knocking people out. Granted, they aren't high level, but he's just starting. I feel like me vs. Kimbo...that'd be a good fight. My speed vs. his power.
    Stephie also asked what his ultimate goal in boxing would be and got a very thoughtful answer:

    My ultimate goal is to win a regional title. Like the USBA or the NABO title. After that, I'm retiring because I'm gonna get beat up even worse. I spar with them boxers at the gym and I get the business. Michael Hunter Jr.? Whoops my ass. Andrew Tabiti? Whoops my ass. I like it. You know what I'm saying? I feel like if I'm getting training with the best guys, these mid-level guys ain't gonna be nothing to me.

    He would get the crap beat out of him if he boxed Kimbo.

    Who knows man. The winner would probably depend more on the money line.

    It saddens me that I can't rep you right now.

    Mo showed a very healthy respect to the other fighters, I always appreciate that.

    And as far as Kimbo, has he ever boxed someone who actually jabbed? Can't say I've ever been impressed by him.

    Mo's boxing is awful.The only punch he knows is the looping hook and he can only throw one of those at a time.
