Mike Imber is well-known for his manager role for the street fighter turn mainstream boxer Kimbo Slice. Many do not know that for years Imber worked to the also well known adult company Reality Kings on many of their sub-sites such as MoneyTalks, InTheVIP and VipCrew. In the beginning he was involved in coming up with the concepts for these sites. Imber explains, “I was part of the team that came up with the concepts and helped in the execution of those concepts.”
Now, that sounds like a fun job right? I am sure many of you are wondering if he is even still involved with Reality Kings and the concept team these days. Especially since Kimbo’s career has really taken off in the last two years. To your surprise he is still very much involved and has a different role nowadays. Imber still maintains the sites and even makes sure that he finds the “best looking” models to be featured on the sites.
Mike Imber also, known as “Icey” and Kimbo Slice’s manager/promoter & friend talked about Kimbo Slice’s career and where he sees his friend in 2 years. Obviously, he spoke very highly of his client, but you can tell he’s quite genuine in his comments and really is looking afterKimbo Slice‘s best interests. He mentioned that he sees Slice becoming a better, professional boxer in the course of two years. He hopes that with extensive training he’ll eventually land a “big fat with a big name.”Icey Mike Imber is not naive as he mentioned that it is something that takes a lot of focus and determination but believes that it is in reach.
Kimbo Slice’s manager also, believes that we might be seeing much more of Kimbo Slice in Hollywood as he has already made a few appearances on films and television. His latest and biggest movie role is in The Scorpion King: Battle for Redemption which, will be released on January 17, 2012 on DVD. Mike Imber says he’s teamed up with Kevin Connelly(Actor & Director, best known for his series “Entourage” on HBO) and have been talking and developing Kimbo Slice’s life story and hope to make it a theatrical release! That would be so very awesome. Kimbo Slice is like the Bruce Lee in Street Fighting and there’s so many fragments of his life that really should be told in a nicely scripted biopic. We sure hope that Icey Mike Imber makes this a reality, fans would be truly “bursting with fruit flavor!“
Apparently, Icey has been around on Slice’s side from the very take off, going to the past as to his number #1 scrap and through his period as an unknown back yard brawler in which he made a known name for himself in MIA. Icey has remained there as Slice’s promoter from the very start. IceyMike Imber was also, there clapping for the 6’2, 225 pound, Kimbo on his pro boxing launch in which he ended up triumphant. There’s no skepticism that IceyMike Imber & Kimbo are spectacular sidekicks that specifically provide to each others prosperity. Kimbo has been busy getting prepared for sometime as of lately and there’s loads in store for the brawler in the approaching future. With IceyMike Imber on his side, this is a duo to be tot up with. Not only are they friends that have determination but it’s with out a doubt that this duo are on the same frame of thought and have come up with the precise recipe for triumph.
For those of you who thought Kimbo Slice was going to loose to the younger, better trained- Brian Green, well, he sure showed you guys! And for all of you her were Team Kimbo all the way- “you know what’s up…” True Brian Green may be younger and may have more training than Slice but the fact of the matter is that training cannot defeat natural born talent which is what Kimbo Slice has. Mike Imber, his best friend, manager and promoter detected this from early on and hooked him up with training to get some technique, but he raw talent was already there and just had to be refined.
Kimbo Slice sure trained like a mad man before entering the ring with Brian Green, he knew he was not going to be a piece of cake opponent. But as he centered himself, became focused and determined when he entered that ring on his the heavy weight, boxing match he was more than determined to win. He had another agenda, which was promoting Autism Awareness through his success and he did it.
Mike Imber and Kimbo Slice donated to the Autism Society the boxing gloves he wore when he defeated Brian Green. They both also, donated an undisclosed sum of money for the cause. Kimbo Slice’s youngest son was diagnosed with this disorder that affects thousands of children every year which pushes him even more to go above and beyond to be successful and be able to give back to causes and charities that he cares for.
Icey Mike Imber & Kimbo Slice go back a long way. Their union all began as they were high school friends. They both managed to stay in touch and after Kimbo Slice left college and began working at strip club as a bouncer he ran into long time pal who offered him a job as a bodyguard. He worked for him for awhile and soon after the back yard brawls began and they were video taped and put on YouTube. Kimbo Slice saturated the world wide net with his grotesque, street fighting style brawls in back yards and became some kind of a hero for all the underground street fighting aficionados.
Since then Icey Mike Imber decided to manage and somewhat architect Kimbo Slice’s career. He saw so much potential and was dead on point. Kimbo has come a long way since the days of his back yard-street fights. He went on to MMA Fighting and now is a professional, heavy weight boxer with three wins in a roll and a couple of acting gigs under his belt as well.
