Highlights from B altimore R avens safety Tommy "Tommy Z" Zbikowski's fight on the non-televised undercard of Saturday's Yuriorkis Gamboa-Jorge Solis world featherweight championship fight, in Atlantic City, will be shown by HBO on "Boxing After Dark," beginning at 9:45 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast). This will mark Tommy Z's first fight with Hall of Fame trainer Emanuel Steward working his cormer.

Tommy Z (2-0, 2 KOs), a former star defensive back and team captain for the University of Notre Dame, is also a former Chicago Golden Gloves finalist. He was forced to withdraw from the championship final due to a family emergency. His amateur record was 75-15. He returns to the ring fresh from a first-round knockout of heavyweight Richard Bryant (1-3, 1 KO), which was televised live on pay-per-view from the MGM Grand, March 12, as part of the Miguel Cotto-Ricardo Mayorga WBA super welterweight championship event. Tommy Z's opponent on Saturday will be undefeated Caleb Grummet (0-0-1) of Holland, Mich.

^ Tommy Z has been boxing as long as he played football, just didn't go pro for a long time. Also there are not many HW's that " devoted " their lives to boxing

So Tommy Z is going to get an HBO mention? There are pros out there who have devoted their lives to this 'sport' and cannot get a five second ESPN name drop. But an NFL dude with no record to speak of is jumping to the front of the line. And let's not forget that this is the same network that ...
