Klits pounds game Briggs

World Boxing Council heavyweight
champion Vitali Klitschko (41-2, 38 KOs) punished game but outclassed former
world champion Shannon Briggs (51-6-1, 45 KOs) over 12 one-sided rounds on Saturday
night at the 02 Arena in Hamburg, Germany. The first round was all Klitschko as
he landed several hard right hands and that set the pattern against the game
American for the rest of the fight. The Ukrainian pounded Briggs throughout round
10 and it is a testament to the American challenger’s heart that he survived to
the end.
