2007 heavyweight champ Shannon Briggs says hes 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 hes pumped and motivated to win back the belt since theres no one else who can.
He explains, Looking at the landscape of boxing right now, theres no American boxers on the rise who can win the title. Im the peoples champion, and Im gonna bring the belt home. Im gonna shock the world and its gonna be a beautiful thing.
Though hes started training and has his eye firmly on the prize, Briggs still hasnt been challenged by the current Russian title holder out of what he believes is fear.
