Default sugar ray. retired 3 years. shocks hagler. can briggs do the same to green?

sugar ray. retired 3 years. makes a comeback with no warmup fights and shocks and active legend, hagler. can briggs do the same to green?

both examples of challenger had health conditions....they both came back for a challenge. briggs is no sugar, but green is no hagler....

how many months ago was it that i told you all this fight would happen?

hagler was active.....ray wasnt, not even a warm up fight.

same as briggs, no warmup against an active fighter.....(or only just active).


briggs, like leonard has been ringside anylising his future opponent. studying him, subconciously working him out.

a healthy, fit briggs can take danny. briggs has more than a punchers chance.

I guess Green is short a good run as well.

In the year hes been back he fought about 9 or 10 rounds and has not been in the grind or under pressure....is Green ready to go toe to toe in the trenches

thats right. green has had some 'real' rounds under his belt lately , but not many. not like hagler had when leonard ambushed him.

greens biggest advantage is his recent 'activity' sparring, mindset, and overcoming the great challenge of fighting roy jones. so green is more mentally ready than briggs.

but one never knows whats in a fighters heart. and briggs showed plenty against adamek.

Agree - but a rusty Briggs with a health question mark hanging over him is more likely to be the victim.

Hope it's a great fight - but these comeback-out-of-the-blue fights invariably end up disappointments.
