    Klitschko Broke Briggs' Face, Shannon in The Hospital - Boxing News

    man this is the shit i hate about boxing..when no one cares to pull a fighter who's too damn brave for his own good..i just knew that briggs would be fucked up after this fight...this shit is terrible..this fight should have never went the distance..after the 10th round i was screaming at my screen for the ref or briggs corner to pull his ass out..i hope shannon comes out of this ok and retires for good

    To be honest it could have been stopped after about 7.

    His corner, the doctor or the referee should have stopped it. He was 100% out of the fight. He could barely keep his hands up.

    Leavander Johnson wasn't fighting in Germany. Oscar Diaz wasn't fighting in Germany. Your statement is one only an ignorant American would make.

    Hopefully he'll be all right.
    I didn't see it yet, but I read a pbp and it sounded pretty bad.

    Waiting for ringtv or maxboxing.com to clearify it.

    Fight was brutal ref and the corner were [email protected] and should have stopped the fight. That was dangerous Briggs had no chance of winning. Klit took his best shots early on and was laying a solid beating on him. Rounds 8 - 12 were sad to see I did just want Briggs to lay down but it was apparent he was trying his hardest to survive.

    saw that fight this morning after the bute fight.

    the guy had heart and was really pulling for him to go the distance. didnt think he looked that fucked up.
    but hey im sure briggs still wouldnt have changed a thing.
    proud of him sticking it out.
