News of no significance that has been flying under the radar is Shannon Briggs attempts to coerce heavyweight champion of the world, Wladimir Klitschko, to put all of his belts on the line and fight him. Recently, Briggs stormed The Champ’s training gym and stepped into the ring while he was working out. Talking trash and flexing his lips, Briggs almost gets the stout Russian to fisticuffs. Seeing the mismatch, his handlers were able to get him out of the gym before he got hurt.
In a second incident, Briggs stalked went to where Klitschko was eating lunch and confronted him. Again, he starts selling wolf-tickets and with a quickness that even his punches have never seen, Briggs takes Klitschko’s meal and begins to devour it. Being irritated that Briggs was talking with his mouth full, Klitschko tries to cool Briggs off by pouring water over his head. From there, it just gets WWE-like.
At this point in his career, Briggs might be getting a little long in the tooth, as evident by the grey hairs in his goatee. Although Briggs looks in fantastic shape, the last time that he fought a Klitschko, Vitali (Wladimir’s brother) reconstructed Briggs’s face. Bernard Hopkins, he is not, it might be time to hang up the gloves.
