Former Boxing Champ The New Rocky

PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A former heavyweight boxing champion has the “eye of a tiger” and he’s looking to reclaim his title for America which once ruled the heavyweight boxing world.

2007 heavyweight champ Shannon Briggs says he’s coming out of retirement to reclaim the honor for America and strip the title from the Russians.

Briggs calls his mission “truly like Rocky IV,” where Rocky challenged a Russian fighter, and says he’s “pumped and motivated” to win back the belt since there’s no one else who can.

He explains, “Looking at the landscape of boxing right now, there’s no American boxers on the rise who can win the title. I’m the people’s champion, and I’m gonna bring the belt home. I’m gonna shock the world and it’s gonna be a beautiful thing.”

Though he’s started training and has his eye firmly on the prize, Briggs still hasn’t been challenged by the current Russian title holder out of what he believes is fear.
