Default Paul Briggs

If you ask me which particular boxer I'd like to see make a comeback, then my answer would be: PAUL BRIGGS! He was probably the most exciting fighter of the 21st century. And the best Australian fighter, as far as I'm concerned. He beat Stipe Drews, a man with a very awkward and tough to beat style. And not just that, he kicked his arse! He is the only one to knock down Drews three times and I am not sure wether he has ever been knocked down in any other fights.

Then he had those two fights with Adamek, which Lampley called the best 24 rounds of the year or something like that. He was a diehard warrior and a no-quitter. You gotta appreciate such a fighter. I'd really LOVE to see him fight again. As I understand, he has had a tough life and had become a criminal at some point after his career as kickboxer ended. That was before he turned to boxing. Incredible fellow. He has even written a book about it.

This guy is intense. He's taking it all too seriously. He only really lost once and that was in the start of his career! Those two Adamek fights, the first one was a draw and the other one shoulda been a Briggs victory.

Definitely and without a shadow of a doubt! Today's 175 div looks pretty mellow. To use that word,hehe.

I could be wrong, but I'm fairly sure he had some problems with his nervous system or something? Couldn't train for an extended period of time or something.

It's ashame, if only something could've struck Mundine and/or Green down instead, that way Australia would speak about Katsidis and Briggs when boxing came up. Instead the Mundine/Green circus continues.
