Jamison Hensley of the Baltimore Sun passes along the news that Zbikowski’s next opponent has been announced. He’ll face Blake Warner, a 33-year-old cruiserweight, on April 23 at the WinStar Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma. (Good seats are still available.)
Zbikowski is 3-0 as a pro with two knockouts. Warner is 1-2, but he’ll have the home crowd advantage because he’s from Oklahoma. Zbikowski is also scheduled to fight on May 21 in Cabazon, Calif., and on June 4 at the Staples Center in L.A.
The Ravens safety has said boxing isn’t really a “second job” and he wants to eventually be cruiserweight champion. He’ll be looking to show improvement after his last opponent Caleb Grummet gave him some trouble before a unanimous decision on March 26.
