Briggs returns Thursday

Former WBO Heavyweight Champion, Shannon Briggs (48-5-1, 42 KOs) has been added to Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing upcoming, “Hustler Boxing” card at the Manhattan Center this Thursday. Briggs, who hails from nearby Brooklyn, will be returning from a two-year hiatus from the ring when he squares off against Marcus McGee (22-17, 11 KOs). Briggs, who turns 38 the following day, will be looking to get back into the heavyweight contender picture, and hopefully set himself up for another world title opportunity somewhere in the near future. Hustler Boxing is being presented by Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing in association with Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club and will be aired live on the nationally televised Versus Network. Doors open at 6:30 PM, with the first bout scheduled for 7:30. Versus will begin airing at 9PM. The Grand Ballroom at the Manhattan Center is located at 311 West 34th Street New York, NY (between 8th and 9th Ave.). Tickets are priced at $202, $152, $102, $52 with VIP tables of ten also available. Call 718-823-2000.
