Happy Valentine’s Day bitches…
News, Notes, and Rumors:
- Just because he is sick, doesn’t mean that Shannon Briggs can’t still talk smack on Sultan Ibragimov:
“We contemplated fighting. I wanted to fight,” said Briggs. “To me this fight was a joke. How did he even become my mandatory? Off a draw with Ray Austin? OK, but it was an easy payday. But we came to the realization that it wasn’t the smartest thing to do. Me losing to Ibragimov because of illness, people don’t want to hear about that.”
- Despite being heavily rumored to be taking on Koki Kameda this spring, WBC Flyweight Champion Pongsaklek Wonjongkam will now be heading to Japan to defend his title against Yo Sam Choi.
- Cruiserweight contender Matt Godfrey will take on his fellow 2000 US Olympic Trials teammate, Felix Cora Jr, on April 6th.
- Look for it to be announced later this week that Jason Litzau will be returning to the ring in April…
