Briggs dreads fell out when Lewis landed that almighty right hand

Some of them are still in use . . . . For lighting candles and tickling the cats arse

About the only good thing Briggs ever had going for him were his dreads – and now they’re gone. Which leaves us with a paunchy, old, bald dude that couldn’t fight a lick on his best day, looking to grab hold of one last paycheck before he turns up working at a car wash in Brooklyn.

CITIZEN’s ARREST

TARK says,
“Nobody kicks my ass fruitball… I would knock you cold with one right to the face. And all the plastic surgeons in pukesville, where you’re from, couldn’t piece it back together again. You must be the same turd who claimed to be McMurphy and never showed up.”

TARK, you are either as old as Larry Merchant, or you are a liar? Which one is it, Bark? You claim to have 50 years in the game as a trainer of champions, yet you think you can beat young men in their primes.

You always say you need to back the percentages. Well, the probability is that if I so choose to I would knock the silly little head off your shoulders quicker than you can say TARK is a w$nk£r, which is clear to everyone.

Citizen’s arrest.

CITIZEN’s ARREST

TARK says

“About 20 years ago I did a citizen’s arrest on a guy wouldn’t shut his barking dogs up. Two other neighbors were annoyed with the jerk and they were farther away. I hired a lawyer for advice and did it by the book. My neighbor got fined and jailed after I took him in, swore out a very specific complaint, and the police were forced to do an investigation. He moved.”

Didn’t realise you were doing stand up, Tarky, old fruit!
The above has to be the funniest thing said on ESB for many a long year.
Keep up your Walter Mitty delusions. You must have been at least 50 odd, twenty years ago, so I’m sure this neighbour would’ve kicked your as(p)!

Cruz.., Nobody should be allowed to take over somebody’s press conference just because they’re 6’4″ X 280 have muscles on their muscles, a 23 inch neck that can absorb a few head hots if need be — but they can’t box a lick so they’re trying to drum up some free publicity off of your success and fame..

He’s an MMA guy at best at this point. He’ll never beat another good heavyweight as long as he lives. It’s a good publicity stunt, but it’s also shouting, threatening, and disruptive. This is not the first time he’s tried to suck off Wladimir’s fame. If he were a top heavyweight contender, like Antonio Tarver was the top light heavyweight when he interrupted Roy Jones’s press conferences after years of avoidance… YEAH… I enjoyed that from Tarver. It was OK. But Briggs is almost a bum at this point … so you throw the bum out.

TARK if you were Wladimir you`d spend all day staring at the mirror kissing your bicep while you w@nked over some muesli which you would then eat with some prunes, so that you could crimp out the king of all poops which you could then roll around in panting.

That’s just how you roll.

If I was Wladimir I would hire some beefy security people. Guys with long bat-like nightsticks hanging from their belts. Have them escort Briggs out immediately whenever he shows up. If he tries to get physical they need to break the batons over his head and do a citizen’s arrest. If they have that power in Germany.

I wouldn’t like somebody hijacking my media conference to drum up his own publicity, tear off his shirt, threaten me, insult my opponent, and walk around shouting, screaming, and flexing his muscles like the Incredible Hulk.

About 20 years ago I did a citizen’s arrest on a guy wouldn’t shut his barking dogs up. Two other neighbors were annoyed with the jerk and they were farther away. I hired a lawyer for advice and did it by the book. My neighbor got fined and jailed after I took him in, swore out a very specific complaint, and the police were forced to do an investigation.

Sorry for turning this into a Mayweather/Pacquiao thing! The thing is Briggs should at least fight 2 good guys before coming at Wladimir like that! Muscles mean NOTHING without proper skills memorized in em’! Briggs did nothing when he fought Vitali; technically he’s as good as his last fight, and his performance wasnt much at all!

Briggs had decent skills as a heavyweight, but was scared to let loose when against better opposition. NO ONE knows how good Briggs is right now, all we know is that he lifts weights and has potential for coming in 3rd as Mr. Olympia. Briggs has to do something other than “wile out” at a press conference. He has to win against someone in the ring.

Boom Boom Mancini came back after four years and took on Camacho, but Mancini (he lost) wasnt doing bad when he left, the game. Briggs wasnt doing good! Yelling and screaming wont automatically make him good enough for a fighter like Wladimir, even though Wlad is fundamentally boring in style.

Briggs is going about it the wrong way, “hoopla” doesnt give you skills, it just makes you look desperate. The sad part is, I dont think he’s gotten any better. What secret training did he do with a coach thats “special?” Does his body carry oxygen well with that muscular frame or is it comprised mostly of weight training. I had muscles like Briggs at one time, but couldnt last 2 minutes endurance wise. Briggs needs to answer the question of stamina & skills. The ONLY way were gonna know if he’s legit is if he fights someone decent. Deontay would kill him, so he’d better stay clear of him….at least for now. Areola would be a good measuring stick.

The fact is, Briggs use to come to theses boards after Klitschko fights and berate them. Then when he got his shot, he stunk up the joint… Briggs needs to fight Chauncey Welever not Waldimir Klitschko.

This is what Pacquiao needs to do! Wherever Team-Mayweather chooses to have a press conference, Pacquiao needs to pop up with a stack of fake needles to throw in the direction of Mayweather! Cheers will undoubtedly erupt from Pac fans, or from fans in general generating a tense entertaining hoopla around the situation.

Pacquiao lost out on missed opportunities by refusing mutually applied stringent test taking; so if he’s now looking for a financial bailout or some sort of personal redemption he should proceed with reckless abandon garnering support from die-hard fans and media thats on board with his excuses. Manny can get under Floyds skin, just like Leonard did to Hearns, & Tarver did to Roy.

Manny has a strong following and i’m sure Mayweather is reminded of this anytime he’s out in public. Manny can now play the antagonist, but its sure gonna look funny as he pops up outta nowhere with his low voice talkin’ bout, “lets get it on man, the public wants this!” adding, “Floyd youre chicken, you need me!” This would look totally hilarious to me, but it would confront Mayweathers insistence to make Manny pay for his refusal to fight over drug tests.

This would be a new kind of pressure that Mayweather would NOT be comfortable with…..he’d have to talk about it – in front of everyone, kinda like “random” interviews he cant avoid. Hopefully Pacquiao wont make Roach or Arum his mouthpiece, because that wont work! it’ll just come across as them trying to get a payday through desperate means….especially Arum. Pacquiao has his own momentum right now, he could & should use it!
Posted April 22, 2014 7:39 pm

^yeah right. he could have done that years and years ago. he can’t even speak for himself. instead all you ever get is: “we’ll see what my promoter/daddy bob arum says, whatever he says is what i will do.”

Stand corrected with the point that Shannon hasn’t been in the ring for 4 years. Apparently Briggs is taking the “Deontay Wilder, fights scrubs and become a contender” approach. I just noticed within a week he has fought a old school Telephone repairman & an a fat factory worker who moonlight’s as a cab driver to make ends meet. He scored 2 quick 1st round ko’s. Yep that proves he’s ready to beat klitschko.

If I were Klitskho and some crazy half nude guy stormed into my news conference, I’d have the cops trow -da- bum- owt. Has it gotten that bad for Briggs to have to resort to this type of behavior ? You have guys out there to fight who are still on the game: Oliver McCall, Thomas Ademek, Tony Thompson these are older fighters still trying to stay in the game, fight one of them before you start acting like a fool. If you want to make a fool out of yourself, that’s fine but what you are unaware of is that you’re disgracing the very sport that might bring you back to your past glory… Man, What the F$@k are you doing ?

Wow, that was coming from nowhere! I mean I must say that I was very suprised that any recognised heavyweight fighter would show up there and dissrespectfully calling out the champ Wladimir Klitschko like that and even less to see the former 2-time world heavyweight champion Shannon “The Cannon” Briggs do that!

I mean that was just a cheap low blow from Briggs and all he accomplished was to make a fool of himself. I feel sorry for him. I mean on what reason did he think he had to go all the way over seas to Europe and Germeny to crash a world title fight press conference like that.
Wow, that was just a low blow. I can’t belive he could or would do that.

He was just for no reason making this crash.
Shannon Briggs havent fought in 4 years in the PRO ring and he thinks he can get a world title shot against the unified and undisputed heavyweight champion of the world (Lineal/WBA/IBF/WBO/IBO) Wladimir Klitschko with-out having fought and defeated any single top ranked heavyweight fighter? That was just cheap.

I actually like briggs but he really needs a reality check. He is in NO position to demand a title shot. He isn’t Champion emeritus or anything. He hasn’t fought ANYONE much less a top ten contender in 4 years. The idea he feels he can just jump to the front of the line and not even get a tune up to see if he is in fact “back”, is laughable. As much as I believe this leapai fight is a waste of time. Alex is more deserving than briggs at this point.

Posted April 22, 2014 2:54 pm

You know what, maybe this outburst by Briggs is a good thing for Wlad. Briggs just put some light on Wlad/Leapai fight and took away the lime light of Bernard Hopkins. Hopkins should be pissed, not Wlad. Briggs is promoting the HW scene, even though he is a Moron.

What a sad attention-seeking has-been. Even if he had a chance in hell of getting the fight, does he really want to end up in intensive care with orbital fractures, facial fractures, a broken nose, burst ear drums etc. like he did when Vitali almost killed him in 2010?

No, I think he was probably just trying to get the attention of Stallone, hoping he can get a part in the next Rocky movie.
