Shannon Briggs speaks out

By Karl Freitag

The video of Shannon Briggs’ rant during world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko’s workout last week in Hollywood, Florida, turned “viral” and has now amassed close to half-a-million views on YouTube (despite being age-restricted for some unknown reason by the powers that be at YouTube). Later that day we managed to track down the still amped up Shannon for this follow up interview.

By the way, although Shannon hasn’t fought since his 2010 fight with Vitali Klitschko, we’re told that Briggs, the last American to hold a heavyweight title belt, has two fights scheduled for next month. April 6 in Raleigh, North Carolina and April 11 in Tampa, Florida.
