Default Riddick Bowe returns in August

Former undisputed HW champion "Big Daddy" Bowe has a bout scheduled for next august 03. His handpicked rival is a bum who's winless in his last seven fights and just 1 - 11 since 1999, and all those 11 losses have come by way of KO. He's also 42 and just 5'10". Last time Bowe was seen inside a ring was more than two years ago, when he struggled against lightly regarded Billy Zumbrun to win a SD. He weighed in at a whopping 280 lbs for that fight, 40 lbs removed from his prime weight. Is Riddick looking forward to a fourth and last Holy match? We'll see.

Zumbrun won that fight. I can't believe that was 2 years ago

Bowe-Douglas coming soon in a theater near you, if they don't lose weight it could become a belly bumping contest.

Whats next? The return of Lennox Lewis? Then we could have the clash of the titans - titled "The Clash of the Titan - the later years".

Don't bet against it. Boxing comebacks are the rule, not the exception. Although Bowe is SO far gone, I doubt much interest could be drummed up for the "logical" fights against Lewis, Tyson or Holyfield.

You can gaurantee this fight does not take place. If it does, riddick will walk into the ring at 300lbs, and that is with a few weeks of training.

Well, I dont think LL will ever return - unlike the others, he has nothing else to prove.

Regardless of form - I would like to see those 4 fight it out once more. It would be at least as entertaining as any other HW fights, imho.

There aren't many fighters that I absolutely despise. Usually, I look at it philisophically- sports are entertainment, and they are entertaining me. Just like in a movie, there are relative good guys and bad guys; heros, villains, anti-heros and anti-villains.

But Riddick Bowe is a piece of shit. Always has been, always will be. He is a lazy, trash-talking coward who minimized great talent, lost fights he should have won, hand picked opposition, chickened out of megafights, renegged on deals, degraded opponentsw, contributed to riots, and made a general asshole out of himself wherever he went.

And he's a criminal.

**** him. He deserves what he gets.

When part of your defense in a federal trial includes "insanity cause by brain damage from boxing"....you should never be allowed in the ring again.
