Lewis thinks he'd beat Zbikowski in boxing ring

Tom Zbikowski, the Ravens safety, has made plenty of waves by whipping opponents in his thus-far undefeated professional boxing career.

But if you ask his teammate Ray Lewis who would win between he and Zbikowski if they stepped in the ring, well, no surprise, but Lewis thinks he'd whip Zbikowski.

"Zbikowski would lose," Lewis told Frank Taylch of NFL.com. "We've already talked about that. Zbikowski is a realist when it comes to the sport. 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!"

Smart money says to go with the guy who actually, you know, boxes on the reg (plus, my favorite boxing/MMA expert, Michael David Smith, thinks Zbikowski will win).
Lockout Jobs

But, having said that, this is Ray Lewis that we're talking about. He's kind of nuts, he's kind of strong and he's an absolute wild card.

Zbikowski might have the experience, but Lewis isn't someone I'd particularly want to bet against in any sort of violent, physical confrontation.

I would, however, absolutely cough up $49.99 in pay-per-view fees to watch them rumble.

Valuable ingredients, somewhat a few of quite a lot of thanks a ton for that some of the maker. It really is without a doubt challenging to my opinion this moment, but then usually, any performance also convenience is undoubtedly confusing. A fabulous propose thanks a ton always just as before combined with good results!

everyone knows black guys cant fight when its 1 v 1.  but if ray ray gets suggs and reed he would probably win

Wow I guess you have missed a lot of great boxing matches over the years.

They are talking about Boxing.  In most cases a trained and experienced boxer is going to destroy someone with some but not a lot of experience.

That being said they have weight classes in boxing for a very good reason. Tom Zbikowski is 5'-11" 215lbs and Ray Lewis is 6'-1" 250lbs.  Usually a bigger man has an advantage so if Ray could hit Tom he would probably hurt him.  Tom's skills at slipping punches might be enough to pick a part Ray and take him out.

It might be fun to watch but I would never pay to see it.

And Ochocinco thought he could play soccer, and Jerry Rice thought he could play golf, and Michael Jordan thought he could play baseball...

RAY RAY didn't look so tough in a prison jumpsuit. He killed someone. Murderer.

is that why 3/4 of the mma fighters that have any success these days have extensive wrestling backgrounds?   believe me at LEAST 80% of mma matches and street fights will end up on the ground.  for the record i saw the fight you are speaking of,  and just because UFC promoted that fat turd as a sumo wrestler doesn't mean he was one.  match your boy Hackney against a REAL sumo grand champion  like Akebono,  he would have been squashed like a grape.  As far as the wrestling "girls" when is the last time a pure karate or "lowly ninja" won a thing in mma?  what a joke is right..

RE: a private message....I guess I shouldn't bag on everybody's favorite forms of self defense so harshly, sorry and all. Nothing against boxing or wrestling, but they really are just sports and are not great for self defense. Great for building self esteem and work ethic though so dont let me discourage anybody. You guys dont know me from Adam, but I firmly believe that everyone should train in Wing Tsun...especially women. Trust me, you will become something of a phenom among your friends as they try to break your defense and subsequently become OWNED!

Ray Lewis is not a boxer. Just because he's a despicable human being doesn't mean he can fight.

What a joke! You people who think Ray would win should watch the early UFC fights with no weight classes. In particular, watch Keith Hackney, all of 5'9" and 180lbs, take down a 7' 500lb sumo wrestler without ever being touched! Just demonstrates how a professional will beat the hell out of hacks each and every time. Simply put, Ray would not land a single punch and would be forced to fight like all the other wrestling girls that populate the MMA world. Funny how wrestling is viewed as a form of self defense in the first place. Like boxing, wrestling is a sport and has no place in a real world fight. And dont give me that %80 of fights go to the ground BS...cuz it aint so. You need ring and a promise of no outside interference for wrestling to be effective...neither of which will ever present themselves in a true fight.
