Briggs KO`s Liakhovich, Wins IBO Title!

Shannon Briggs somehow pulled out a victory and returned a Heavyweight title back to the United States. For a fight that had no excitement, no drama, and no thrill for 11 rounds and 2 minutes, the final minute seemed to be worth the wait. Briggs landed numerous shots against Sergei Liakhovich, eventually sending him down with 30 seconds left in the 12th round. Statistically, Liakhovic could still hold onto his title, but took a number of good shots after the knockdown, could never recover, and eventually fell through the ropes and lost to Briggs when the ref stopped the fight with one second left.

Now Briggs is the new IBO Heavyweight Champion and will likely take on the winner of the Wladimir Klitschko-Calvin Brock fight next weekend in New York.
