- Preston City Wrestling sent us the following press release, announcing that former Undisputed World Heavyweight Boxing Champion Riddick Bowe will make his wrestling debut for the company next year:
Former Heavyweight Boxing Champion Riddick Bowe to make wrestling debut for UK based Preston City Wrestling
The UK based wrestling promotion Preston City Wrestling announced today that former Undisputed World Heavyweight Boxing Champion Riddick Bowe will make his wrestling debut for PCW in 2014. Company officials have exchanged contracts with Mr Bowe's representatives for a bout to take place on 1st March 2014. Preston City Wrestling (PCW) officials expect this to raise the company's profile and widen its fan base by appealing to both boxing and wrestling audiences. In addition to wrestling on the 1st March 2014 Mr Bowe will also appear 28th February 2014 for a final contract signing, with his soon to be announced opponent.
PCW owner Steven Fludder said: "This is an exciting coup for Preston City Wrestling. Riddick Bowe is one of the greatest heavyweight boxers of all time and has been training hard to make the transition to the wrestling ring"
Last month the 6ft 5in star said: "I want to be first heavyweight boxing champion and heavyweight wrestling champion. I have trained hard with those bumps."
Brian Elliot Fighting Sprit Magazine Editor: "Riddick Bowe was a household name for his accomplishments in boxing, and for him to be making his pro wrestling debut for Preston City Wrestling says a lot about how that company is perceived by the international talent who've performed there," said Brian Elliott, the editor of Fighting Spirit Magazine. "PCW has taken the best bits of British wrestling and updated them for a young audience that is influenced by WWE. They are unquestionably the most forward-thinking group in England, and the signing of Riddick Bowe is a testament to that."
