PR: Briggs Calling Out Wladimir

Briggs4Earlier today, one of boxing’s busiest publicists Mario Serrano was on the case for former WBO Heavyweight title holder – lets not call him champion, I’m feeling rebellious and one belt is essentially a fraction of the crown – Shannon Briggs. The respiratory difficulties Briggs endures don’t seem to prevent him spouting hot air on a regular basis; even in these troubled times in the heavyweight division Briggs cannot jump straight back into a world-title fight or can he? Wladimir Klitschko is the target.  

PRESS RELEASE: 18/07/07

Former WBO heavyweight champion, Shannon “The Cannon” Briggs is seeking a shot at Wladimir Klitschko, as he stated, “I’ve been calling out Klitschko for years and got no love.” Briggs, who was diagnosed with walking phenomena prior to his title defense against Sultan Ibragimov, mentioned, “No matter what his people are trying say, I was not 100% going into that fight. Give me the opportunity to fight at full strength, and we’ll see what happens. If Klitschko is so great, he should have no problem taking a fight with me.”Wladimir, who stands at the top of the heavyweight division, recently retained his IBF strap by dominating Lemon Brewster in Cologne, Germany.

ENDS

For the record Briggs turns 36 just before Christmas.
