Klitschko-Briggs set

Word is WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko will defend against Shannon Briggs on October 16 according to BILD. The bout will take place at the o2 World Arena in Hamburg, Germany and be officially announced later this month. It will be Klitschko’s first fight in eleven years in the city he lives at least part-time in. “Briggs is a very strong challenger,” Klitschko told BILD. “I will prepare myself very intensely for him with my trainer Fritz Sdunek. He has many more professional fights than me and is one of the hardest punchers!”
