Tom Zbikowski, is hanging up his boxing gloves for now so he can “transition back to football.”

The Ravens safety has said that he is pausing his boxing career because he wanted to show his teammates that he is serious about getting ready for the 2011 season. He said the decision was tough and he enjoyed the opportunity to fight for Arum again.

Zbikowski told the Los Angeles Times: “It was time to start the transition back to football…My teammates are starting to organize some workouts, so it’s just time to head back (to Baltimore). Wish I had more time to do both…As tough as it is to turn yourself into a fighter, it’s equally as tough to transition into an NFL player.”

Zbikowski was 3-0 in his return to the boxing ring during the NFL’s work stoppage and is 4-0 in his professional boxing career.
