Ravens S Tom Zbikowski plans to return to boxing once his football career comes to an end, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Zbikowski had a 3-0 record as a professional boxer this offseason and is 4-0 for his career. He had another match scheduled for June, but canceled it to focus on football.

"I'd like to play football as long as I can," Zbikowski told that paper. "I still believe I can box after I'm done (playing) football. … It's a sport where maybe you're better as you get more mature, older, stronger and a lot more wise."

Zbikowski recorded 17 tackles in eight games last season, but could play a bigger role this season, especially if S Dawan Landry departs in free agency.
