Mr. Perfect: Ravens S Zbikowski now 3-0 in boxing career

It's now three up and three down in the professional boxing career of Tom Zbikowski.

The Baltimore Ravens safety scored a unanimous decision victory over Caleb "True Grit" Grummet on Saturday night in Atlantic City, *The Baltimore Sun* reported.

Zbikowski was favored on the cards by all three judges, 39-36, 39-36 and 38-37.

This was the steepest challenge yet for the 5-foot-11, 215-pound cruiserweight, who scored first-round TKOs in his previous two bouts. Zbikowski last fight came on March 12, when he stopped Richard Bryant.

Citing an official with Top Rank Boxing, *The Sun* reported that Zbikowski's next bout will be in a Native American Casino outside Dallas.

Zbikowski, who has yet to sign his contract with the Ravens as a restricted free agent, could become an unrestricted free agent in 2012, depending on the new collective bargaining agreement.

"Without a doubt -- if I can get that worked out -- that's my perfect world," Zbikowski said on Friday. "Other people might not feel that same way. If we can get that worked out, I can play at M&T Bank Stadium in the season and fight at M&T Bank Stadium in the offseason."

The three-year NFL veteran has the support of Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti, who called Zbikowski's exploits in the ring "awesome."
