Tom Zbikowski wins another boxing match

Ravens safety Tom Zbikowski improved to 3-0 as a professional boxer with a unanimous decision victory on Saturday night in Atlantic City.

Although Zbikowski’s opponent, Caleb Grummet, has never won a pro fight and wasn’t expected to give him much of a challenge, it was the most competitive fight of Zbikowski’s brief career: Zbikowski’s two previous fights had been first-round technical knockouts, but this time around Grummet took him the distance.

Jamison Hensley of the Baltimore Sun was on the scene and wrote that Zbikowski got hit hard and didn’t have an easy time of it, but did deserve to win the decision.

Prior to tonight’s fight, Zbikowski was expected to return to the ring on April 23. We’ll see whether Grummet giving him a tougher time than expected makes him rethink his boxing career.

  1. Call it newsworthy when he actually fights someone with a pedigree.

    Hand picking opponents is another reason why boxing sucks…

  2. Why don’t I just fight him, I’ll get knocked out in the first 30 seconds and can assure him his 4th gimme.

  3. In the words of Grummet’s manager Wallace, “it’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.”.

  4. Can’t be easy fighting an MMA guy. Funny how swollen Gummet’s eye was. Sign The Toby.

  5. @kegpack, you have no idea what you are talking about. Tommy Z is a young prospect not a headline fighter. Boxing isn’t MMA where you can get a title fight after a handful of fights or be headliner like Kimbo because you are a freak. You have to develop fighters in this sport and it takes time. Tommy is 3 to 4 years from fighting anyone good. This is still what makes boxing great is that they develop fighters and they are trained technicians in the ring. Thats why its a joke that Ray Edwards thinks he can do it. Sorry but its too late, you don’t walk into boxing latter in life.

  6. Tommy Z didn’t look good in this fight but he did just change over to Emmanuel Stewart which isn’t smart to do right before a fight. I would have figured the change was coming after this fight, not the week before.

    If it wasn’t for the low blow in the 3rd it would have been a draw. Tommy also isn’t a heavyweight. If stays in boxing he will have to drop down to 175 and with the proper road work that is a possibility but that would mean no more NFL.

    Very raw yet as a fighter and a few years away from being a contender.

  7. Ok, Tom Zbikowski won another boxing match; but what was the point spread? How does this relate to football sunday addicts?

  8. My buddy Phil Davis is fighting the main event tonight on Spike. The winner gets a shot at the light heavy title.

  9. If there us an BFL for him to return to, will he file a claim against the league for his head injuries?
    Or will his boxing earnings cover that?

  10. I see pinheads read this board. Boxers don’t normally fight for the belt after 3 pro fights. As I recall, it took more than that playing “Punch-Out”. For the idiots saying he’s fighting nobodies, here’s a clue: in boxing, HE’S a nobody.

  11. Are fights not airing on HBO, Showtime, Pay-per-View, or ESPN actually professional????

    If a newspaper is the only major medium covering it, then it’s not that big of a deal.

  12. Sorry but its too late, you don’t walk into boxing latter in life.

    Not true my friend, there have been several fighters starting to box in their early to mid thirties who have had successful careers.

  13. come on chad.. accept! dont let Z dis you that way…. we all wanna see you get you 20 seconds in the ring!

    Really? Name me one. I know of a couple who started in their early 20s and became successful by the time they where in their mid 30s like Martinez but find me one fighter who started in his 30s?
