By Patrick McHugh: Former WBO heavyweight champion Shannon Briggs says he’ll be back inside the ring in December. He’s not saying who his opponent will be other than it not being former two division world champion David Haye.
Briggs was hoping to get a fight against the 35-year-old Haye. Briggs even agreed to fight on Haye’s undercard last May in thinking that it would possibly lead to him getting a fight against him. The fight never materialized and now Briggs is moving on in another direction.
“I just got great news from #KrisLawrence @theheavyweightfactory ceo. I’ll be fighting in December,” said Briggs on his Instagram. “The show must go on. I scared 💩 out of #DavidFeathers aka @mrdavidhaye so now I have to go another route. What’s his excuse? You ain’t ready? I pulled your hair? I cyber bullied you? 😂😂😂 Your toe hurting again? 😂😂😂 I’m dying to see the pie they dig up for your next pie fight.”
