Briggs Cuts Ties with McGregor as Trainer

WBO Heavyweight Champion Shannon Briggs will be changing trainers for his upcoming bout against Sultan Ibragimov on March 10th according to The Arizona Republic.

As odd as it may seem, Briggs has not yet named a replacement for now former trainer Chuck McGregor. The leading canidates are rumored to be former middleweight champion John David Jackson and the father of former welterweight champion Zab Judah.

Jackson is said to be the front runner of the two because he is a southpaw just like Ibragimov…

“I’ve been around this game too long. It’s his right to hire whoever he wants,” McGregor said
