Tom Zbikowski Tests Positive for Marijuana After Latest Fight

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Tom Zbikowski fought and won again against another creampuff opponent on Saturday night in Thackerville, Oklahoma. Today, news has come down that the Baltimore Ravens safety tested positive for marijuana in his drug test.

From the Sporting News:

Mike Joyce, who serves as Zbikowski's lawyer, manager and boxing coach, said a second test was scheduled for Tuesday.

"We’re appealing it," Joyce said. "After the fight, all the fighters tested were positive. They had you pee in a cup and put a strip of something in there. I’ve never seen results where you get them the day of the fight. It was like a home pregnancy test or something.

"He’s taken all sorts of tests for the NFL and he’s never tested positive ... ever," Joyce said.

The Ravens released a brief statement, which was posted to Twitter by Aaron Wilson of National Football Post. "We’re aware of the story about Tom and the test. As of now, unfortunately, we are unable to reach out to him for his side of the situation."

While I have "bashed" Zbikowski's boxing vacation, I will say to wait until after a second test, because from Joyce's description this sounds pretty damn weird overall. And we're talking about the Oklahoma commission actually, the tribal commission, not Nevada or New York or Jersey or even California.
