Kimbo Slice in Japan to Check Out Their Bread

Kimbo Slice is in Japan this weekend, reportedly there for color commentary duties with the striking-only organization K-1, but according to industry insiders the former EliteXC superstar is also in the Land of the Rising Sun to check out their selection of bread. Although Slice is well-known for his love of white bread, rye bread and long loaves of French bread, he has often expressed an interest in the baked products of other nations. Said longtime manager "IceyMike" Imber, who accompanied Slice to Japan, "Kimbo's definitely liking it here. They have Melonpan, which is an enriched dough covered in a thin layer of crispy cookie dough, as well as panko, a variety of breadcrumb, and the sweet, red bean paste-filled Anpan. It's all good."
