Shannon Briggs returns Saturday in Minnesota

Just 8 days after destroying Maurenzo Smith in his first fight since 2010, former heavyweight champion Shannon Briggs (52-6-1, 46 KOs) will be back in action this Saturday night at the Black Bear Casino in Carlton, Minnesota. Briggs, the last American to hold a world heavyweight championship, will be facing Francisco Mireles (17-8, 5 KOs) in a scheduled ten round special featured attraction.

In the main event, cruiserweight Al Sands (12-1, 11 KOs) faces Keith Barr (12-5, 3 KOs) for vacant NABA USA cruiserweight title. The card is presented by Zach Walters’ Jungle Boy Promotions.
