Briggs rushed to hospital

Heavyweight title challenger Shannon Briggs is in the intensive care unit at the University Hospital Eppendorf in Hamburg, Germany. Briggs suffered fractures below both eyes as well as a concussion and broken nose, after taking dozens of hard shots from WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko on Saturday night, but is responsive according to RTL. He also suffered a pulled tendon and torn muscle in his right arm.

Briggs was rushed to the hospital after the fight as doctors feared a possible cerebral hemorrhage after observing symptoms associated with neurological disturbances and drowsiness. Happily an MRI showed that there was no brain bleeding.

Referee Ian John-Lewis, who has received criticism for not stopping the fight, said he was within “one or two shots” of stopping it. “It was a heavyweight world championship,” he said. “These are tough guys and as long as a man fights back, you have to give him a chance.”

WBO junior featherweight champion Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. (20-0-1, 17 KOs) scored an inspiring eleventh round TKO over former super flyweight king Ivan “Choko” Hernandez (28-5-1, 17 KOs) on Saturday night at the Silver Spurs Arena in Kissimmee, Florida.

Returning as world champion for the first time to the city where he has fought the majority of his fights as a pro, “WV2″ and “Choko” engaged in a give and take battle for the first few rounds. Vazquez Jr. took over at the end of round four and began to overpower Hernandez in the fifth. Hernandez had a good round in the seventh outboxing the champion and one could sense the tide might be turning in the eighth. Vazquez, however, came out with renewed vigor in tenth, rocking Hernandez with big shots. “Choko” went to the wrong corner after the round. “WV2″ jumped all over Hernandez in the eleventh and referee Telis Assimenios soon waved it off. Time was :50. (more…)

WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko (41-2, 38 KOs) punished game but outclassed former world champion Shannon Briggs (51-6-1, 45 KOs) over twelve one-sided rounds on Saturday night before 14,500 spectators and a worldwide television audience at the o2 Arena in Hamburg, Germany. Klitschko’s domination began in the first round, as he landed several hard right hands. That was the pattern as the bout progressed. The champion was in total command landing right hands almost at will, while the normally fast-starting Briggs was unable to get untracked offensively. Strong round for Vitali in round five, while Briggs displayed a world class jaw. Klitschko continued to break down Briggs, staggering him in the seventh. Briggs wobbled back to his corner after being punished further in round nine. Vitali beat Shannon from pillar to post in round ten but the bloodied Briggs somehow absorbed it and then weathered a further battering to reach the final bell. Scores were 120-107, 120-107, 120-105 as judges could find no round to give the challenger. (more…)

By Graham Houston

Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. tops the bill on PPV for the third time this year when he defends his junior featherweight title against Mexican veteran Ivan Hernandez in Florida tonight. Vazquez looked poised and powerful when crushing Marvin Sonsona in four rounds in February and overpowering Zsolt Bedak in the ninth round in May. He was meeting unbeaten boxers in those fights but on Saturday he faces a veteran ex-champion who has been boxing professionally for a decade.

Despite Hernandez’s experience, Vazquez is an overwhelming favourite. The son of Puerto Rican great Wilfredo Vazquez, “WV2”, as he is known, seems to be that rarity, a naturally gifted fighter who from the start of his career had the look of a future star. (more…)

Klitschko-Briggs collide tonight

Sumio Yamada/WBC

By Graham Houston

Shannon Briggs can certainly talk a great fight, and he has been his usual loquacious self heading into Saturday’s heavyweight title challenge against Vitali Klitschko. Briggs has even predicted a 30-second KO win, while also announcing that his victory will be dedicated “to the sufferers of asthma worldwide”. It seems that Shannon, who has suffered from asthma since childhood, was greatly offended by a Klitschko comment that Briggs has used his asthma as an excuse for past failures.

All this is good fun, of course, leading up to the fight in Hamburg that will be shown on the Internet on espn.3 for U.S. residents. Tonight, though, the contrived trash talking stops and things will get serious. (more…)

Fightnews scored the fight 97-93 in favor of Perez. Perez used his superior speed, various angles and ring generalship to control the bout, sweeping the first half of the fight and then cruising to victory in the second half of the fight. Salcido simply took too long to get started and despite looking good in the last couple rounds was too far behind and lacked the power to put away Perez.
