    Shannon is going get what he wants. After Wlad fights Jennings, Briggs is next.

    Briggs can't even beat Kimbo right now on Bellator

    Eh, there are keep busy fights that aren't farcical. Unless German TV is offering silly money, it's just a bad joke.

    It's a shite fight but it comes off the back of fighting the top contender and second best heavyweight in Pulev and a decent young contender respectively. (Assuming he beats Jennings.) It's a piss poor fight but it's hardly as if WLAD isn't fighting contenders also when two of his last three were the top two contenders and his next is against another decent contender.

    Didn't the older brother put him in an actual coma.
    I admire his gumption but I fear for him.

    Amazing that Briggs came up with the entire campaign after watching Rocky III really high.

    I called it.
    Said Briggs was gonna get his shot and why not?
    I bet Klitschko does big numbers against Briggs since hes an American, hes a known fighter, and his antics would be played in the promotion.

    I will go one step further and say Briggs lands a crazy haymaker and KOs Klitschko.

    Briggs vs Wilder for all the belts December 2015 or April 2016.

    It's a shit fight. Guess Wlad already knows Wilder won't fight him right off the bat and wants a stay busy fight

    I don't think Wilder entered the equation in this decision. At all. It'd be 2016 at the earliest before WLAD could hope to smash the porcelain and take the paper belt.

    More like Shannon Briggs wakes up in the hospital, after a coma brought about by a severe concussion.

    The winner of the fight could have been. It was a while ago since Vitali left for politics. Can only speculate though

    I think Wlad goes into a deep dark depression if that happens

    This still isn't as bad a mismatch as Garcia vs Salka, I don't care what anyone says.

    The King has earned the right to smack Briggs around.

    Yup. He can fight whoever he wants, as he is still walking through all comers.
