Video: Shannon Briggs Picks Up 7th Consecutive Win

PANAMA — Shannon “The Cannon” Briggs continued his #LetsGoChamp campaign by successfully defeating Zoltan Petranyi in Panama City on Friday by 1st round knockout. You won’t remember this Zoltan. Walking Petranyi down, and letting his hands go early, Briggs defeated a guy who was far and beyond below his class level. After body slamming Petranyi and threatening to punch him...

The Week’s Boxing Schedule Featuring Tim Bradley, Austin Trout, Devon Alexander And Amir Khan

That is me IRL above, because I am writing the boxing schedule from a beach in Mexico (OK, so it’s really Shannon Briggs being a goose, but you get the idea). Also worth celebrating is the fact that it’s a huge week of boxing, the last of the year. There are some seriously big names in action, including (but not limited to) the names in the headline. Let’s just jump right into...

Quick Jabs: Al Haymon’s Takeover Bid; Victor Conte’s Selectivity; More

Kangaroo boxing videos have lost some of their appeal, ever since the kangaroo boxing video where one kangaroo sociopathically strangled another kangaroo well beyond the bounds of good taste. The one above isn’t so creepy. It has become a minor smash, with cause. In this edition of Quick Jabs, we’ll talk about human-punching, mainly, and the business thereof. There are the subjects...

Briggs Trolls Klitschko…Again

SOUTH FLORIDA - He’s BACK. Tenacity is a great quality that will get most people closer to attaining a goal. I’m not sure that’s going to happen for Shannon Briggs.

Klitschko vs. Leapai press conference photos & notes, including Shannon Brigg’s odd appearance

The final press conference for the Wladimir Klitschko vs. Alex Leapai fight was held earlier this afternoon. It wasn't without drama, either, although it had nothing to do with Klitschko vs. Leapai. For some odd reason, Shannon Briggs stormed the presser and made a scene, demanding a shot at Klitschko and ripping off his shirt in the process. God help us. Plus, we also have another...
