Earlier today, Ravens safety Tom Zbikowski told Dan Patrick that the non-teammate Zbikowski would most like to face in the ring plays in Cincinnati, and goes by the name “Ochocinco” — and that Zbikowski would knock Ocho out in 45 seconds.
Said Ochocinco, in a Twitter message: “you wana go nite nite, you want to box me, for 1 your feet are to slow and you’ve no hand speed to even be competitive.”
Zbikowski didn’t hesitate, posting the following challenge on his Facebook page: “Dear Ocho Cinco . . . thanks for following my career . . . You and me at M&T Bank Stadium, charity four-round boxing match. You wear Orange and Black and I will wear Purple and black. If we do it in May, that should give you enough time to get ready . . . You game?”
We’re game. Hell, we’d even break out the ’68 VW bus and drive over there for it.
