Riddick Bowe Eyes Pro Wresting, Targets Hulk Hogan

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 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.

Is Bowe really bored or does he need the money that bad?

This idiot doesn't realize that Hulk Hogan does not wrestle anymore, or did he ever did! Hulk was a great show man that couldn't figuered out how to get out of a arm lock. Which ever the case it may…

$$$. 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.
