Ravens' Lewis: 'Zbikowski would lose'

Share This Story


Tom Zbikowski has said he believes he can beat any active NFL player in a boxing match, but to no one's surprise, his Ravens teammate Ray Lewis does not agree.

"Zbikowski would lose," the 12-time Pro Bowl linebacker told the NFL Network on Monday.

"We've already talked about that. Zbikowski is a realist when it comes to the sport," Lewis said. "The locker room talk is always that about who can beat who. He'll be the first to tell you he's not going to get in the ring with a 250-pound person. That's crazy!"

Last month, the undefeated Zbikowski said he would most like to face Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco in the ring. But he acknowledged that Lewis hits harder on the gridiron than the 195-pound Zbikowski hits during a fight.

The 25-year-old safety has won all three of his professional fights, including two last month. He is scheduled to fight again April 23 in Oklahoma against cruiserweight Blake Warner.

Zbikowski has said he hopes to continue boxing in the offseason in coming years and eventually win a title in the cruiserweight division.
