With the possibility of a lockout, many NFL players are turning to boxing or wrestling.
Tom Zbikowski had a boxing career before going into the NFL (by the way, the NFL sounds like a pretty good fallback plan to me…) and now, he is returning to the ring. Zbikowski has only made 10 starts out of 39 games, so he isn’t a MAJOR part of the Ravens, but their secondary is weak as it is. Bob Arum is the promoter for the boxing ring that Zbikowski will be fighting in, and he said that “obviously, once they have to go back to training camp, we’ll be on a hiatus again, but as long as he’s available, he’s going to be kept very, very busy”. On March 12th, Zbikowski will be fighting Richard Bryant in a heavyweight match with four rounds. In addition to Zbikowski’s boxing, Jets LB Bart Scott has been wrestling a bit in his spare time. Scott aided Hulk Hogan in a TNA Wrestling event last week.
