Ex Heavyweight Champ Riddick Bowe Promises to KO Dan Bilzerian4 months ago
Dan Bilzerian is under fire from all sides this week, with former Heavyweight boxing champion of the world Riddick Bowe the latest to call him out – threatening to give the millionaire playboy an ass-whooping on the poker tables, if not in the ring…
It has been a torrid week for Bilzerian after he was named GGPoker ambassador, the divisive self-styled King of Instagram immediately being pulled up for his misogynist and sexist behaviour – and calling Canadian poker player and Twitch streamer Vanessa Kade a “hoe” in reply….
That sparked a huge backlash against the man who claims to have won $50million in highstakes private poker games, but who spends more time posting pics of himself with near-naked women on Instagram, such as this one from last Christmas…
His public comment aimed at Kade could yet prove costly for the man who claims to be super-rich, but has so far relied on his corporate-raiding, jailbird father for his wealth.
Phil Nagy, the boss of Americas CardRoom stepped up to offer Kade a bankroll should Bilzerian fancy backing up his words with a HeadUp for Rollz battle with the Canadian streamer.
Bilzerian has so far not responded, but is likely seething that his celebratory $100k freeroll to welcome him to GGPoker (as a brand ambassador alongside Daniel Negreanu) was won by…a woman!
That righteous result was, as expected, met with serious support on Twitter, a few of the comments seen below…
‘Dan was defeated by a woman, lol...., he will have to get used to it..... Congratz to Alexandra, great that you won!!’
‘@GGPoker What a great opportunity for you to make a donation to support women's rights!’
‘So awesome & fitting that a woman won this after the brutal chat comments the past 24 hours...congrats!!’
Bilzerian’s past is riddled with serious accusations and lawsuits related to physically assaulting women, at least two incidents caught on camera.
In 2014, he was banned from a Miami nightclub for allegedly kicking a woman in the face during a brawl, though Vanessa Castanno later dropped her lawsuit. The same week he was hit with another lawsuit after throwing a woman from the roof of a house during a photoshoot, Janice Griffith breaking her foot in the incident. Those charges were also later dropped.
Perhaps it’s time Dan Bilzerian met someone like Riddick Bowe in person to provide some serious opposition both on, and preferably off the table.
