Briggs, 42, squared up to Klitschko at his open day in Florida on Tuesday and once again made it perfectly clear that he wants a shot at redemption after losing to brother Vitali in 2010.
Since then, and after taking a three and a half year break, Briggs has bulldozed through four opponents, three of which came in the first round – and is now once again a ranked contender in the top division.
‘The Cannon’ is being forced to wait his turn as Klitschko attempts to sift through a host of mandatory contenders that come with holding four title belts, and is lined up to fight Kubrat Pulev next in September.
A possibility may arise at some point in 2015 for Briggs to get his shot if he stays busy and keeps winning, although unless the one-time WBO title holder can claim victory in a final eliminator, it could be a long wait.
Today’s incident is the latest in a long line, that include Briggs hitting Klitschko with a flying shoe and gatecrashing a press conference in Germany last April.
