HBO Will Air Clips of Tommy Z's Fight on Gamboa-Solis

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.
