    Damn, what a disappointment. Vitali fighting Briggs and Wlad fighting Peter, two more wasted defences.

    Oh, and Vitali by KO in the middle to late rounds.

    Not a great choice... but there aren't many out there

    I'm still hoping Valuev and Solis will be able to fight Vitali sometime.

    Surprisingly, Briggs looked in good shape his last fight. Now, this is based on physical appearence alone seeing as the fight went 98 seconds, but he's not carrying around all the excessive muscle he had before (but still plenty strong), and low body fat.



    Briggs hasn't really done anything to earn a shot, and seeing as Vitali faced a pushover in his last fight I'm wondering why he isn't facing a top 10 guy.

    Briggs has power, a mean look, and could talk a good game. He could have been a superstar, but his stamina was piss poor and he lost to less talented fighters who worked harder than him.

    Valuev or Solis already would've been way better choices

    It's too bad those Klitschkos won't man up and dance with David Hayemaker Haye.

    Solis is in line for an eliminator with the WBC, so he will be fighting him... Valuev didn't want to fight, so that's not an option.

    He's got a broken vagina... He can't make it; unless of course the guy in the ring with him is an over the hill slouch... Or an overrated gorilla...

    even Tua would have been a better choice IMO. at least Tua won his fight on the night of the young heavyweights card 14 years ago where as briggs got stopped. yeah, yeah, he got a gift against Foreman and he got lucky against Liakovich, but Briggs' only chance here is if vitali quits again

    Why isn't Haye fighting? I assume it's ducking, but I remember him saying he wanted to fight Vitali first because the WBC is the "real" belt (lulz).

    Did Vitali and Haye even try to negotiate?

    Haye does seem to have packed on some pounds.
