Kimbo Slice wins pro boxing debut with 10 second knockout over James Wade

Maybe his "inner me" isn't the "enemy" after all.

Kevin Ferguson, known to the masses as Kimbo Slice, made his professional boxing debut tonight in a four-round bout against James Wade, who was 0-1 coming into the contest.

Now he's 0-2.

That's because the former Ultimate Fighter contestant knocked him clean out, sending him through the ropes flat, needing only 10 seconds to do so. In his debut earlier this year, Wade lasted until the third round before getting knocked out.

Slice, 37, is looking to recreate himself as a pugilist after a failed run in the UFC ended at the hands (and kicks) of Matt Mitrione at UFC 113 back in May 2010. Tonight was his return to action and if the results were any indication of his future in the "sweet science," the future is bright.

Shortly after winning, Kimbo tweeted a pic that had the tagline: "This is how he ended up." See it after the jump.
