Slice, whose real name was Kevin Ferguson, was taken to hospital in Margate in Florida US yesterday where he later died.

His managed Mike Imber told the Associated Press: “We lost our brother today,”

Unlicensed bare knuckle boxing was where Slice made his name in the early 00s when footage of his brawling bouts went viral.

The Bahamian-born ex-football player and strip club bouncer then made the transition to MMA, competing in several promotions, including UFC and Bellator.
