Zbikowski wants to box Ochocinco
By James Walker
Baltimore Ravens safety Tom Zbikowski is preparing for his second professional boxing match Saturday in Las Vegas. But when asked recently on the Dan Patrick Show which NFL player he'd like to get in the ring, Zbikowski brought up a division rival.
"[Chad] Ochocinco talks like he can box," Zbikowski said of the Cincinnati Bengals receiver.
Ochocinco, who incorporates boxing as part of his offseason training, responded to Zbikowski via Twitter.
"You [want to] go nite nite, you want to box me, for 1 your feet are [too] slow and you've no hand speed to even be competitive," Ochocinco tweeted.
Zbikowski has plenty of experience as an amateur and said he'd like more professional fights. But Ochocinco feels he has the edge in athleticism. So who would win this matchup?
