Former heavweight champion Riddick Bowe (43-1-0 with 33 knockouts) is now looking to start a career in pro wrestling. Last month, Bowe tried his hand at Muay Thai and he was battered in two one-sided rounds. Bowe, 46-years-old, planned to have another Muay Thai bout, but now appears to be more interested in pursuing a career in pro wresting. He told WrestlingRumors.net that wrestling icon Hulk Hogan was his target - stating "[I want to use] Hogan as my warmup." Pro wrestler Tommy Dreamer has actually offered Bowe free wrestling training at his House of Hardcore training facility. Hogan works for wrestling promotion TNA, where a number of aging MMA fighters have appeared in recent weeks.

$$$. Hoping that he can cash in on his name. Which in boxing, isn't exactly the biggest. Throwing his belt in the trash didn't help.Post a Comment - View More User Comments (30)
