Vitali 'ruined' Briggs
That's like saying you ruined a piece of dog shit by stepping on it.

Probably when he tried to actually block some of Vitali's punches and his muscles simply weren't conditioned to move in such a manner...his patented "break your hand on my face" defense evidently wasn't effective that night so he had to at least try to change it up a bit.

I find it quite humorous how Mendoza calls a New England team with 2 first round draft picks, 2 2nd round draft picks, 2 3rd round draft picks next year...a team "in decline". LMAO. New England smartly stockpiled their picks for next year including a top 5 pick courtesy of the raiders, and will be very good for years to come.

New England did not replace a tons of guys on defense..
But they did. They have one of the youngest defenses in the league. 10 of their 11 starters on Defense are under the age of 30. They continue to improve every week. Jerod Mayo is leading the NFL in tackles, Pat Chung is turning into a monster, Brandon Spikes had 16 tackles the other day, Devin McCourty is blossoming into a shutdown corner, Jermaine Cunningham is looking more and more like he is going to be an elite pass rusher. Give it time.

As for a Deep Threat, Brandon Tate is the answer. He has blazing speed, and very good hands, along with tremendous natural ability. If not for an ACL injury 2 years ago, he would have probably gone in the first round in the draft. He is already an electrifying kick returner. Also don't sleep on rookie Taylor Price for the future. 6'0 200lb 4.37 speed.


Patriots just unseated the # 1 rated Baltimore Ravens, WITHOUT Randy Moss. I would say that is pretty impressive.

Well, when Briggs gets to be about age 50 and he cannot wipe his ass by himself or tie his shoelaces without an assistant, we'll then know what effect this fight with V.K. had on him...

This is a yahoo article.

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Malpractice is a word that immediately leaps to mind when thinking of the jobs that Ian John-Lewis and Herman Caicedo did – or, more properly, failed to do – on Saturday in Hamburg, Germany, during the World Boxing Council heavyweight title fight between Vitali Klitschko and Shannon Briggs.

The words incompetence and carelessness also come to mind.

Briggs took a horrific beating from Klitschko in a terribly one-sided fight and wound up in a German hospital with serious injuries. He suffered a broken left orbital bone, a broken nose and a torn left biceps in a bout in which he never came close to winning a round.

John-Lewis was the referee for the fight and he stood idly by as the powerful Klitschko, who had knocked out 38 of his previous 42 opponents, pounded Briggs unmercifully. The fight could have been halted as early as the sixth round, when it was clear Klitschko was far too much for Briggs to handle.

A fighter’s safety is the primary responsibility of the referee and John-Lewis failed miserably. Fortunately for Briggs, he’ll be able to recover from his injuries and says he wants to continue his boxing career, but the long, sustained punishment he absorbed in that bout is the kind that often leads to a tragic conclusion.

Rarely does a fighter die from a one-punch blow. I have covered numerous matches in which a fighter has died as a result of injuries he suffered in the ring and in nearly every case, the fighter absorbed dozens of punches to the head, round after round after round.

John-Lewis was negligent in failing to halt the carnage and should face sanctions from the boxing regulatory bodies which have licensed him.

Caicedo was Briggs’ lead trainer and he, like John-Lewis, was completely irresponsible sending Briggs back out to fight. Just finishing a fight on his feet is not reason enough to allow a man to take the kind of a punishment that Briggs was permitted to endure.

Caicedo has said in interviews that Briggs didn’t want the bout to be stopped, but that shouldn’t matter in the least. Like the referee, the trainer’s primary job is to look out for the health and safety of his boxer. And when he realizes his boxer is facing an undue risk, he needs to halt the bout.

Briggs said he’s going to fight again once he recovers. I sincerely hope it’s when he recovers, but the remnants of the Klitschko fight may stay with him a long time. Freddie Roach has Parkinson’s, brought on by fighting far too long and absorbing punches he shouldn’t have taken.

Hopefully, Briggs won’t wind up in a similar boat. If he manages to avoid long-term damage, it will be no thanks to the work of John-Lewis and Caicedo on Oct. 16 in Germany.

With that, let’s take a look at the new Yahoo! Sports boxing rankings. We’ve added three new voters to the poll this month, with Showtime boxing analysts Al Bernstein and Steve Farhood participating, along with Damian Calhoun of the Orange County Register.

<SPAN id=intelliTXT itxtvisited="1">
heís not that devastating one punch single puncher like Lennox. Lennox could knock you out with one punch, and Wladimir has that ability. Vitali systematically wears and breaks people down. Thatís just the way he fights. It is very seldom you see him knock someone out with one punch. His fights with Sam Peter and almost all of his fights, he systematically breaks people down. Thatís just him. Lennox was a totally different type of fighter and very unique.
