WBA/WBO and IBF Super World heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko will face Bryant Jennings April 25 at the Madison Square Garden in New York.

The other possible opponents he should face next would be Tyson Fury or Deontay Wilder.

Shannon Briggs doesn't even deserve to be taken into consideration after his behavior.

Of course he should. it will entertaining until the end. How come no one complained about Lepai?

Where were these voices against Garcia vs lil Salka? Or Peds-erson vs shot santana?

Agreed Deep. At first I wasn't interested one bit in hearing Briggs yell LETS GO CHAMP over and over, but now I'm the one yelling it and calling everyone champ. I go out, you drink champ? I drink champ. At dinner it's always what you eat I eat. YOU TRAIN CHAMP I TRAIN CHAMP LET'S GO CHAMP!!!

I want it for Briggs, the man who used to train in the sewer and worked his way up the ladder fighting one bum at a time until he started getting knocked out. But he's not a quitter, and that's what I admire. Briggs won't quit until he's achieved whatever it is he's after. LET'S GO CHAMP!!!

I think Berstein has a good point, The sanctioning bodies have nothing with which to even justify a massacre of this magnitude. Let Briggs tune up against Bermaine Stiverne, or if that's to much of a step up (really anybody in the top 10 would be a step up) let him go up again the oldest, saltiest, and most credible gatekeeper in the game, Amir Mansour, two bangers fighting for redemption. If bad behavior gets Briggs a shot for receiving a high volume of hits on youtube, maybe I could fight Andre Ward by throwing a few tomatoes at him and posting on instagram. Seriously there is no justification for this fight until Briggs beats someone of note and not against another no hoper who already lost to WK. The fight Briggs had with Vitali almost gave the anti-boxing advocates hope, and gave them a brief bit of momentum after viewing the one sided slaughter.

The Commish says:

Yes, Briggs took a one-sided beating from Vitali Klitschko, but part of the reason was that Briggs tore a bicep muscle very early in the fight, and was basically a one-handed fighter. Still, he remained on his feet throughout.

I have a feeling a title shot is close for him. If not against Wladimir Klitschko, then against Deontay Wilder for the WBC belt. Briggs isn't picky. He knows that Wilder will bring him a nice payday and that a win against Big D will bring him a massive payday in a unification fight against Klitschko.
