SHANNON BRIGGS VERBALLY GOES AFTER WLADIMIR KLITSCHKO AS HE ONCE AGAIN INTERRUPTS A GYM SESSION.
Former WBO heavyweight champion Shannon Briggs showed up at an open workout in Florida earlier today and once again made it perfectly clear that he wants a shot at a Klitschko redemption after losing to brother Vitali in 2010
Briggs then took a break for 3 1/2 years and since returning has won four in a row, three ending in the first round and is once again ranked.
Briggs is forced to wait though as Klitschko has to go through a myriad of opponents that are waiting since he does hold 4 heavyweight title belts. His next scheduled defense is September 6th against Kubrat Pulev.

That unfortunate circumstance forced his fight to be canceled altogether within minutes of his scheduled weigh-in. The reason behind the NYSAC denial had something to do with Tapia's blood test, though specifics haven't been released.
