Jim Harris: Cedric Cobbs to Make Pro Boxing Debut
Cedric Cobbs is still searching for his place in the professional sports world.
The former Arkansas Razorback running back star of the early 2000s, who spent a short time in NFL as New England Patriots draft pick and as a Denver Broncos free-agent signee, tried a comeback of sorts in football a few summers back when he had a brief stint with the indoor football Arkansas Twisters. Many folks didn't know that the charismatic Cobbs also pursued another interest for a while: acting.
Count us among those didn't see this latest venture coming, though.
The 32-year-old Cedric Cobbs, who appears to have worked himself back into the physical stature he commanded as a UA running back, will step into the professional boxing ring for the first time on Saturday in a Memphis suburb.
