SHANNON BRIGGS‘ June 3 heavyweight fight with Fres Oquendo has officially been cancelled after the American failed a drug test.

Earlier this week ESPN reported that Briggs tested positve for “dramatically increased levels of testosterone,” throwing his Hollywood, Florida clash with Oquendo into jeopardy.

Last night the promoters of the event confirmed in a statement that the fight will no longer go ahead and will not be rescheduled.
