ready to fight.

Kevin Fer­gu­son Jr., the old­est son of late fight­ing star Kimbo Slice, will make his pro­fes­sional mixed mar­tial arts de­but next month for the Bel­la­tor pro­mo­tion.

Fer­gu­son had his first am­a­teur MMA fight in March, stop­ping his op­po­nent in 83 sec­onds. Less than three months af­ter the death of his fa­ther, who also fought for Bel­la­tor, the 24-yearold Fer­gu­son will fight on the un­der­card of Bel­la­tor 160 in Ana­heim, Calif., on Aug. 26.

Slice, 42, also fought for Bel­la­tor ear­lier this year, but he had been di­ag­nosed with con­ges­tive heart fail­ure and needed a heart trans­plant when he col­lapsed at his home on June 6. He died at a hos­pi­tal hours later.
