Super Series semi-finalist inflicts debut defeat on Shannon Briggs


Jeddah Superdome, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. In the cruiserweight limit (up to 90.7 kg), ex-challenger and semi-finalist World Boxing Super Series (WBSS) American Andrew Tabiti (20-1, 16 KOs) beat a compatriot who had not entered the ring for a long time
James Wilson (7-1-1, 6 KOs).

The underdog turned out to be a man who looked a lot like Shannon Briggs: a beautiful “pineapple” on his head, threw out his front arm, hiding his head below the waist, often lowered his hands and paced around the perimeter of the ring, tried to practice defense with head movements, but basically did not have time and missed, rushed into aggressive, but rare sweeping attacks.

By the equator, Briggs was tired of the damage received (most often yawning left hooks) and, apparently, from his own weight. In the 5th round, he stopped returning blows for blows, was pinned in the corner, missed more and more, took a knee. With difficulty, he reached the gong, but did not come out for the 6th three-minute period.

Tabiti RTD 5.
