53-Yr-Old Ex-Heavyweight Champ Riddick Bowe Is Returning To The Ring, Boxing In October
Riddick Bowe is back!!
We’re told the 53-year-old former 2x heavyweight champion has inked a deal with Celebrity Boxing to fight October 23 in Miami.
Bowe — who last fought to a unanimous decision victory in December 2008 — does not yet have an opponent.
Back in his day, Riddick was one of the BADDEST dudes in the world. His pro record stands at 43-1 (33 KO’s) … with 1 of those big wins coming at the expense of the legendary Evander Holyfield.
Bowe is just the latest 50-something former champ to re-lace up the gloves.
Late last year, Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. fought an exhibition match that ended in a draw.
Speaking of 55-year-old Iron Mike … we’re told Bowe actually has interest in fighting Tyson.
It’s a fight boxing fans badly wanted back in the day, but the stars never aligned for Mike and Riddick.
We’re told fight promoters are currently tracking down an opponent … and an announcement will be made sometime over the next few weeks.
