IF you’re in London and you’ve heard a maniacal American barking ‘Let’s go champ!’ every five seconds, you’re not going mad. Shannon Briggs is in town.

Rather than call people out on social media (though he’s done plenty of that as well), the 44-year-old has invaded the UK in pursuit of fights with David Haye, Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua.

While Guillermo Rigondeaux couldn’t get a VISA to actually box in England, Briggs has waltzed in to shout at anyone who will listen.
