Riddick Bowe compiled a 43-1 record as a pro, fighting from 1989 until 2008.
The Hall of Fame talent, it is reported, will return to the ring, in an exhibition atop a Celebrity Boxing card planned for October 9. Here is the release which went out trumpeting the ring return:
Valley Forge, PA (June 30, 2021)–Celebrity Boxing (IG: @celebrityboxing1) today announced that two-time heavyweight champion, Olympian, and Boxing Hall of Famer Riddick “Big Daddy” Bowe, will return to the ring – this time as part of a “Official Celebrity Boxing” card, live worldwide on Pay Per View TV on Oct. 10.
TMZ Sports broke the news in a report published earlier today.
Celebrity Boxing, featuring Riddick Bowe, will be shown live in North America on Pay-Per-View October 10, starting at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. ET. Pay-Per-View cost is $29.99 (taxes and fees may apply).
“We held a very successful Celebrity Boxing event recently live on Pay-Per-View from Atlantic City, and I’d like to start off by thanking our fans for remembering us, and that we started the celebrity versus celebrity attractions over 18 years ago,” said Damon Feldman, founder of Celebrity Boxing.
“We’ve remained successful through and through because we keep our promises and always deliver an incredible show. If you haven’t seen Official Celebrity Boxing yet, then watching the legendary Riddick Bowe take the ring October 9th is a must!”
Celebrity Boxing has not yet announced his opponent, so Bowe called out to his fans to suggest one, dropping the names of some of boxing’s fiercest and most famous. “Who you think I should fight?” asked Bowe. “Maybe Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, Shaq Daddy…let me know who you want me to fight, and it's a done deal.”
Celebrity Boxing features a stacked card of famous names and faces across music, sports, social media and business, all ready to square off inside the legendary Celebrity Boxing ring.
Shlomo Zalman (Sam) Bregman of Alpha Tribe Media, who also serves as Bowe’s manager and attorney, brokered the deal between Riddick Bowe and Celebrity Boxing Inc. for the main event bout agreement.
