Duran separates playful Briggs from Petranyi at weigh-in (video)

Shannon Briggs

Hard-hitting heavyweight Shannon ‘The Cannon’ Briggs and his forthcoming opponent Zoltan Petranyi weighed in on Friday ahead of their bout on Friday night.

Former WBO champion Briggs, 43, is aiming to move a step closer to a shot at nemesis Wladimir Klitschko later in the year and is massively favoured for another knockout in Panama.

New Yorker Briggs has stopped a record number of his opponents in the very first round, five of which have come in his last six outings since a self-imposed exile from the sport between 2010 and 2014.

At the weigh-in, ring legend Roberto Duran stepped in as the outspoken Briggs gave Petranyi a dressing down in his usual fashion.

The bout will take place at the Hotel Sortis in Panama City.
