, CA. - It was a surreal sight to find former heavyweight world champion boxer Riddick Bowe standing near the entrance to a mixed martial arts fight card in the back lot of an old Hollywood motion picture studio that is now a nightclub.

But there he was “Big Daddy” the former scourge of prizefighting who retired for a period of eight years then returned with a fight here and there. Bowe wants to return again, but not to boxing, he’s throwing his hat into the world of MMA.

“I’ve got to make a living for my family,” said Bowe, 40, who is a two-time heavyweight champion in professional boxing.

Xcess Entertainment
signed Bowe to fight exclusively for them beginning on Dec. 12. Though no site has been confirmed the former boxer is targeted for that fight card in California.

“If Evander Holyfield can fight so can I,” said Bowe citing his former foe’s age of 45. “I just turned 40.”

Bowe will not be the first former world champion boxer to try the cage, 46-year-old Ray Mercer is a former WBO titleholder who participated in an MMA fight and was submitted by Kimbo Slice this year. But Bowe and his promoters hope to get the former boxer prepared by next month.

“We have Riddick Bowe training with Mark Kerr in Los Angeles,” said Bruce Valachi, CEO for Xcess Fighting. “He should learn a lot from Kerr.”
