Wladimir Klitschko and Shannon Briggs figured in a restaurant confrontation in Florida on Aug. 2.


Wladimir Klitschko and Shannon Briggs figured in a restaurant confrontation in Florida on Aug. 2. 

The tussle began when Briggs stormed into the restaurant where Klitschko was and then grabbed the latter's plate and started eating his pasta, per FightNews.com:

"Apparentely food is where you cross the line with world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko. Shannon Briggs stormed into the famous Italian restaurant Mamma Mia's in Hollywood, Florida, informed the champ that he'll go wherever Wlad goes, and then grabbed Wlad's plate and started eating food off it. 

"Wlad asked if he's like a drink with his food and poured water over Briggs' head! That's when all hell broke loose. Briggs grabbed the glass and it broke, cutting Briggs on his hand. Shannon tried to get at Wlad and was restrained by several guys and dragged out of the building apparently through the same broken glass as he cut his foot also. Shannon is currently in the hospital getting stitches. 

"Judging from the video Klitschko seemed to be favoring his right hand after the melee. He is scheduled to leave Florida to return to Germany on Saturday." 

The confrontation between the two warriors was the pinnacle of Briggs storming into Klitschko's training camp. Briggs demanded a fight against Klitschko, per The Ring's Lem Satterfield: 

"In a video that simply has to be seen to believed, Shannon Briggs, the last American heavyweight titleholder, stormed the South Florida training camp of RING champion Wladimir Klitschko on July 29 and demanded a fight. 

"Klitschko (62-3, 52 knockouts), also holder of the IBF, WBA and WBO belts, is preparing for his 17th defense against Kubrat Pulev (20-0, 11 KOs) on Sept. 6 at the O2 World Arena in Hamburg, Germany. 

"No U.S.-born fighter has held a heavyweight title since 2007 when Briggs briefly wore the WBO's strap following a 12th-round stoppage of Sergei Liakovich in November 2006 before losing it by unanimous decision to Sultan Ibragimov seven months later. 

"During the latter portion of the video, Briggs enters the ring with the shadow-boxing Klitschko and begins dancing around him, simultaneously taunting him. 

"At that point, Michael Moorer, a former heavyweight title holder, stepped between them and pushed Briggs backward before escorting the still-shouting fighter from the gym. 

"Klitschko was last in action for a fifth-round knockout against Alex Leapai in April.

"The 33-year-old Pulev, who stands 6-foot-4 to Klitschko's 6-6, was last in the ring scoring a third-round knockout victory of Ivica Perkovic in April." 

Grantland.com's Rafe Bartholomew chimed in on the turn of events in his Aug. 4 blog

"So what is going on here? Briggs, who at 42 looks more muscular than he was in his fighting prime, might just be 'roid raging. It is becoming more and more the norm for boxers over the age of 38 to be in the best shape of their lives.

"Or perhaps Briggs has always been a lunatic. He is, after all, the guy who explains, 'I get paid to knock people out' during an interlude at the end of Track 7 of the Fugees' Grammy-winning album The Score. 

"Or he's trying to bait his way into a fight with Klitschko, a world-class opponent who would bring millions of euros into a fight with any opponent,  even a forty-something heavyweight who got beaten to a bloody pulp by Klitschko's older brother, Vitali, in 2010. My advice: Pray that Wladimir is not in on this charade, and that he's not helping Briggs build demand for a fight between them later this year or early next year or any time in the future. 

"Briggs is not considered a top-10 heavyweight contender by the Transnational Boxing Ranking Board. He has fought four times this year, always against journeymen, bums and low-level gatekeepers in the division, in locales like the Tampa DoubleTree and the Mountaineer Casino in West Virginia.


"It may be fun to watch him go berserk on YouTube, but he probably doesn't belong in a boxing ring anymore, and he certainly doesn't belong in a ring with the heavyweight champion of the world."
