Security thwarts Briggs’ pie plan for Klitschko

Former heavyweight champion Shannon Briggs (53-6-1, 47 KOs) once again made his presence felt in Germany, attending the weigh-in today of unified heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko and mandatory challenger Alex Leapai. The shirtless Briggs didn’t show up empty handed, bringing with him Germany’s most expensive and popular pie. No official word on what Briggs intentions were with the pie but security on hand weren’t taking any chances and stopped Briggs before he could get close enough to deliver the pie to Klitschko. Briggs has been a big hit all week in Germany and was swarmed by fans seeking autographs and “selfies” for which he gladly complied. The atmosphere around him was almost like it was Briggs who would be fighting Klitschko Saturday night.
