Ravens' Zbikowski to carry 3-0 mark into ring against Warner

Tom Zbikowski is set to step back into the boxing ring for his fourth professional bout later this month.

The Baltimore Sun reported Monday that the Ravens safety will fight 33-year-old cruiserweight Blake Warner on April 23 at WinStar Casino in Thackerville, Okla.

Zbikowski scored a unanimous decision over Caleb "True Grit" Grummet on March 26 in Atlantic City, N.J., to improve his record to 3-0. It was the steepest challenge yet for the 5-foot-11, 215-pound cruiserweight, who scored first-round technical knockouts in his previous two bouts.

After his four-round fight against Warner (1-2), who hasn't fought in eight months, Zbikowski is scheduled to fight in Cabazon, Calif. on May 21, and again on June 4 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

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.

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