Shannon got another fight this weekend!!!
If his old ass keeps this pace up this come back could be epic!

Also Tommy Morrisons son is also on this card as an undefeated heavy prospect.

Payday or no payday I love the way he's doing it as long as the comp level rises with it. Its not epic till he gets a title shot and wins ...and ill still say his ass was roid'd up the whole time! Formens come back is hard to duplicate!

Wilder should fight Briggs. That would instantly be the best guy he's ever faced.

Wilder would knock him out during the ring walk, Shannon been done for yrs. he just want a payday, Wilder may have not fought anybody.. Though I rate Scott highly but Briggs doesn't have the chin to stand up to Wilder"so freakish power. It would be like the Fight where Deontay had Sergey flopping like a mermaid on the canvas

I agree he's just looking for the payday. I'm not sold on Wilder yet. Want to see him in with better competition and at least see if he can take a punch. If Briggs can withstand the initial onslaught from Wilder, wouldn't he at least try to test his chin with one of those slow wild punches of his? Wilder got buckled from a jab not too long ago. I think the first person to land a decent punch will have Wilder on Easy Street. Then we can see what kind of mettle he has.

his comeback just went next level! with that "epic" possiblity in sight!

Fightnews is reporting that Oquendo has pulled out and Briggs is trying to convince the WBA to give him the fight. He's been training like hell, But remember that Oquendo has been out of serious contendership for several years. Forget the bullshit "Regular" WBA heavyweight title with this. The important thing is that the winner SHOULD get Waldimar Klitschko maybe in the fall. Shannon Briggs beat George Foreman although controversially for the "real" championship.

Pulling for the fight to be accepted, and for Briggs to do the upset. Chagaev isn't all that anyway. Let's break the Klitchko strong-hold of the last decade. Stiverne-Wilder should be this fall for the WBC title.

im wit you jack id love to see the winner on this WBA match up fight the winner of the WBC then go at Waldimer for Supremacy!

Now unconfirmed rumors that Oquendo WILL be fighting this weekend:

Fightnews: http://www.fightnews.com/Boxing/oquendo-on...-is-a-go-251634

They may play this down to the wire to promote interest in a fight that nobody really cares too much about in the first place.

Briggs can't even beat a Deontae Wilder, he's never been a special talent and he's a border line solid fighter. He don't deserve shit. The fact that Oquendo and Chagaev is fighting for a belt is already a farce. It's plenty of better and more interesting Hw's then this bum. I'd rather Holyfield come out of retirement and get a shot. He'd do light yrs better then Briggs

If Hitz said it then it's more fact then rumor. As promoters go and figures in the sport, he's a stand up guys one of the few. It could be to promote and push this circus show they call a fight but I don't care, as long as Briggs is kept in the land of irrelevance

You can Tweet to the WBA about the absurdity of this fight if you have a Twitter account here:

I pointed out that Oquendo has no credentials to be fighting for any kind of belt, and that these kind of fights destroy all credibility to boxing.

Didn't you want Briggs to get the fight? He ain't qualified either. This whole thing was a farce. Chagaev gon lose the strap soon enough, he can't beat Takam, or the winner of Perez-Jennings. It'll change hands soon

Agreed. How did they get a reported 30,000 people for this POS. Chegnev isn't all that.

It was 30k there? That's some good promoting. I saw some images of the fight and it looked pathetic. Everyone around the boxing universe is saying how awful it was to watch. The WBA should be ashamed for sanctioning that fight. But wait there's more, there's a rumor because the fight was so close the WBA may order a rematch

The thing is though,

As if this fight for any kind of title is bad enough, why Chegnev and Oquendo? There's got to be some forien money going around the WBA's hands because for years, it was Valuev, Ruiz, and Oquendo fighting for some form of "regular" WBA title.

Did you know that Lennox Lewis is to blame for starting this "regular" and "super champion" bullshit? When he was undisputed champion, he thought there should be more time between mandatory defenses for fighters who held more than one belt. I don't know if he actually came up with the "Super Champion", "regular champion" shit, but he mentioned the idea, and the WBA ran with that, Absolute shit!

Normally, I try to defend the alphabet federations, or at least try to understand them, because I work with them from time to time in submitting ideas, and realize their international infrastructure. But sanctioning this as any kind of title fight, almost mandates that somebody come in and issue and investigation and reprimand against the WBA for this farce.

Get tha F outta here Jack! For real??? I had no idea that they hung on to a fighter's words, corcerns, etc. As you mentioned, Lewis didn't come up with it, but who would've known that a fighter's complaints would cause that type of shift in the organizations rules. Look at me, acting like sanctioning body rules actually matter, Lol

As I remember,

Lewis wanted more time for champs with multiple belts to defend. The WBA said, "Fine." They grant something like you can have 18 months between their mandatories if you are defending more than one belt. But you can't wait more than 27 months to fight a WBA #1 contender during that time, as a unified belt holder.

If you just hold the WBA title, you are expected to defend it at least once a year. The stupid part is the WBA said, "Lennox's idea allows more time for united belt holders, but we can't have our #1 and #2 guys wait for 18 months (or more.) while a unified champion, "does his thing." (Their words, not mine.) So they created the regular championship belt for the #1 contender and the winner of who he chooses to fight." The whole mess could have been solved by just having the #1 guy fight an "elimination" fight. like at least once a year. Than fight the unified belt holder when his time comes. But don't give a belt to contenders and call it a championship!

Worse, is that neither Chegnev or Oquendo are contenders, certainly not Oquendo. Only reason the fight was close, is that both guys sucked so bad that it was a fight with "even level sucking." The IBF and WBO don't do Super or Regular Belts. The WBC kind of doesn't. They just call fights between the #1 and #2 (or top designated contenders) for the "Silver Title." Their "Diamond Belt" has no rules for title defenses or sanctioning fees. It's commemorative only, giving to two top fighters who engage in a big superfight for their division at the discretion of the WBC Board of Governors.

I didn't know Lennox is the cause of this. But it figures, I can't stand his ass, he's one of the most overrated HW champs of all time imo
