On Christmas Eve, Briggs and promoters Ckrush Sports and Entertainment released a photo of himself with the caption “all I want for Christmas is Sam Peter’s two front teeth.”

Twas the night before New Year’s, all quiet in the house.
Sam Peter is hiding out in Africa, like a scared little mouse.
Happy holidays to Kushner, Arum and King.
But I really wish Dino Duva would get me Sam Peter in the ring.
Sam Peter’s running scared, somebody check his vitals.
My resolution for 2006 is to be holding all the titles.
Sam Peter doesn't speak well, after I hit him, he'll get worser.
I promise I'll knock him out cold, like I did Ray Mercer.
While others run scared, I yearn for this fight.
Happy New Year to all, and to Sam Peter? Say good night.
