Tom Zbikowski back in the ring tonight
By James Walker
Baltimore Ravens safety Tom Zbikowski will have his second professional boxing match Saturday night in Las Vegas.
Zbikowski (1-0) will face 35-year-old Richard Bryant (1-2) on a card headlined by Miguel Cotto and Ricardo Mayorga. The bouts begin at 9 p.m. ET and is available on pay-per-view.
Zbikowski was an accomplished amateur boxer who eventually chose football over fighting. But with the NFL lockout, Zbikowski decided to get back in the ring this offseason. He said he may participate in another fight or two if time permits.
Several Ravens will be in attendance supporting Zbikowski, including Pro Bowl safety Ed Reed and defensive lineman Haloti Ngata.
