Yesterday at the weigh-in for Anthony Joshua vs. Charles Martin, Shannon Briggs once again made his presence known by confronting David Haye. The Brooklynite raised the Hayemaker’s ire by briefly touching his hair, prompting Haye to tell him a fight is inevitable and Briggs is going to get “banged out.”
I see no issues with this fight. As entertaining as Briggs is, he’s done nothing in the ring to justify being anywhere near a title shot. Haye has the name, but he’s still in rebuild mode after years away from the ring. This would be a decent payday for both in the UK (and likely a smashing KO for Haye).
