Is the Return of the Cannon a possibility at age 47??
HELL YEAH!!! So says Shannon Briggs himself, who tells TMZ Sports he’d be down to take a fight in 2020 … all he needs is a few months to get back into shape.
We spoke with the 2-time world heavyweight champ about the upcoming rematch between Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz … when Briggs started showing us he’s still got it!!
Of course, Briggs hasn’t fought since 2016 … but posted a 60-6-1 record during his career. Dude was/is a STUD.
So, we had to ask Briggs if he could take on AJ or Ruiz … and he says ABSOLUTELY, as long as he has time to get ready.
“I think that if they give me a shot in 2020, they’re gonna see who the real champ is.”
He turns 48 in December, but he clearly doesn’t give a DAMN about age.
“I think right now, I’m out of shape. But, I think that you give me 6 months and a couple fights, I’ll be able to beat any man in the world.”
Briggs says people have been ducking him throughout his career … so we’ll see if that happens again next year.
