Green-Briggs Update

By Craig Watt

IBO Cruiserweight champion Danny Green and challenger Paul Briggs were angry today that the New South Wales Sports Combat Authority have refused to allow the 35 year old Briggs to fight in Sydney under their jurisdiction for their planned 21st July bout, just two weeks before the planned bout at the Sydney Entertainment Centre. Paul Briggs (26-3, 18 KO’s) has not fought since a twelve round decision win over Rupert van Aswegan in February 2007. The official reason from chairman of the boxing authority Terry Hartmann was outlined this afternoon. He stated, “Briggs failed to provide the medical evidence that the specialist sports doctor advised the authority should be obtained for this fight and in addition the request for a couple of warm up fights first was just ignored on a number of occasions.” (more…)
