Times must be getting hard for former heavyweight champion boxer, Riddick Bowe.

The former two-time World heavyweight champion, who went 43-1-1 in his career has apparently decided he wants to become a pro wrestler, asking any people with contacts to hit up his manager on Twitter.

Looking into get into pro wrestling partners. Contact my manager [email protected] if u can help.

I want to be first heavyweight boxing champions and heavyweight wrestling champion. I have trained hard with those bumps.

Really? Has it come to this, Riddick?

The one time boxing great has been trying to continue his career in some type of fighting, recently attempting to partake in Muay Thai, which, was a mistake.

Bowe fought Levgen Golovgin who absolutely demolished the former boxing star, knocking him down fix or six times in two rounds before the fight was eventually called with Bowe writhing in pain.

I guess if you’re going to be destroyed physically, might as well do it in the form of pro wrestling instead of getting paid pennies on the dollar to get beat down in Thailand, eh?
