At 6-foot-4 and a relatively lean 350 pounds, Ngata is extremely athletic. He's a former rugby player.
"If you let me train Haloti Ngata he'd do some damage," said Zbikowski, who's set to fight March 12 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas for his second professional fight. "He's seriously the most gifted athlete I've ever been around and he's 330 pounds. There's no one who would be able to compete with him physically. He's just a bear."
Zbikowski agreed with a suggestion that many of the great potential American heavyweight boxers are playing in the NFL instead of pursuing boxing.
"It might be true," Zbikowski said. "The Klitschkos are the best right now and they've been the best for a long time. Just because they're in Europe doesn't mean there are not great heavyweights. I think a lot of the American heavyweights right now are playing football. Boxing is honestly one of the most athletic things you can do and to be a good boxer you have to be very athletic.
"Right now you're seeing the top athletes go to college to get an education. I think if you have boxing back at the collegiate level you might have some more American heavyweights but right now they're seeing that as the best path to go."
