Zbikowski challenges Ochocinco to boxing bout

A little social media spat broke out Monday. If anything actually comes out of it, there will be a far better, far realer spat. Ravens safety and cruiserweight boxer Tom Zbikowski told the Dan Patrick Show that the non-teammate he’d most like to face in the ring is Chad Ochocinco. “(Chad) Ochocinco talks like he can box,” Zbikowski said. “I’d let it go … for about 45 seconds. I’d let him know what a real jab feels like.”

Naturally, Ochocinco got wind of this and took to Twitter.

“You wana go nite nite, you want to box me,” Ocho tweeted. “for 1 your feet are to slow and you’ve no hand speed to even be competitive.”

Zbikowski somehow deciphered enough of the tweet to realize that Ochocinco was claiming he could outbox the former Golden Glover. So, Zbikowski called the bluff via Facebook.

“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?”

If Ochocinco is game, you can expect to see a pile of gold teeth on the mat within 15 seconds (or 45, if Zbikowski stays true to his word).

PHYSIE has the golden idea....

Celebrity boxing would be a great tv show.  We'll start with Jose Conseco and Richard Hatch form celebrity apprentice.  Jose was talking the tough guy game on the opening episode.  I actually think it would be a good match.  Jose is not as tough as he talks.  I remember Vai Sikkahema kicking his butt rather easily.  I think Richard may have a shot with some training.

I'm in on the show.  Just think of the endless opportunities.  Charlie Sheen vs. Cuck Lurre, John Calipari vs. John Cheney, McNabb vs T.O., etc. etc.

Ochocinco is out of his league here.  I think he will balk at the opportuity to dance in the ring with Zbikowski.  He's all bark....no bite.

Their are at least 3 different videos of Ocho going through some boxing workouts so hes not completely unfamiliar to the sport. He doesn't ever actually fight anyone  in the video but from what you can see Chad dose have some fast hands and decent foot worker. that being said he drops his left every time he throws a left, his combos are sloppy at best and he leans way outside his center of gravity. I feel confident in saying that if ochocinco where to box a former Golden Glover it would be disastrous for him.

Hopefully if the fight happens in May, that will be the last thing Zbikowski does in purple and black. He's got to be a better fighter than safety.

This is the one time ochocinco may finally regret running his mouth.  I would love to watch this go down.
