Shannon Briggs: I Would Knock Tyson Fury Out in One Round!

Shannon Briggs is very confident in his ability to score a first round knockout over Tyson Fury - if the two former heavyweight champions step in the ring in 2018.

Briggs (60-6-1, 53 KOs), who is coming off a suspension for a failed drug test, is currently back in training for a ring return in 2018. He's been inactive since May of 2016.

Fury (25-0, 18 KOs) is in the same position. He's been out of the ring since November of 2015, when he shocked the world by winning a twelve round decision over Wladimir Klitschko in Germany to capture the IBF, IBO, WBO, WBA world titles.


During his time away from the ring, Fury has battled depression, substances abuse issues, and weight gain.

Now he's back in training, he's shaving off the weight and very motivated to make things happens in the new year - possibly on a date in April.

Next month, Fury is hoping to regain his license to box from the British Boxing Board of Control.

Briggs believes that he would be ready for anything that Fury would bring to the ring.

“He’s a rhythm fighter - I’m a rhythm fighter we’re going to take it to the middle of the ring," Briggs told The Sun.

“If he tries to box me I’m going to bum-rush him, if he tries to slug with me I’m going to wear him down - I’m going to knock him out, this is the heavyweight championship fight."

And how would the fight play out if they meet? Briggs expects the contest to be short and sweet.

“Round one, I will knock Tyson Fury out in one round. That’s how hard I’m hitting," Briggs said.

According to veteran, he has been sending his sparring partners to the hospital.

“I’ve been destroying sparring partners - putting them in the hospital, I stopped putting up the training because it was getting too bloody - too vicious man," Briggs said.

I wouldn't want to see what Briggs' face would look like after 12 rounds of Fury.

Does Briggs even have a liscence to fight still? He’s almost 50, has asthma, has a heart condition, and he is juicing out his mind.
