Bowe said that he wanted to be the first athlete ever to be both a boxing heavyweight champion and a wrestling champion. In the boxing ring, Bowe finished with a 43-1 record with 33 knockouts. He won the WBA, WBC and IBF titles in 1992 and then had a second reign in 1995.
Bowe retired in 1996 and made a return in 2004. He hasn’t boxed since 2008. Earlier this year, Bowe tried his hand at kickboxing, losing his only fight. Now, at the age of 46, he wants to become a professional wrestler.
While that might be considered old to start a professional wrestling career, he received an immediate response from former WWE and ECW wrestler Tommy Dreamer, who offered to train Bowe for free at his wrestling school. Bowe’s people and Dreamer have been in contact, and it looks like Riddick Bowe might be ready to start training for a professional wrestling career.
The WWE career of Riddick Bowe might be a pipe dream, but the company loves stars from other sports, so if Riddick Bowe makes an impression, there is no reason to not believe he will end up in the WWE one day.
