Briggs is a good commentator, if he did dive, it is a duiscrace, however he did expose green, right from the weigh in when he weighed on the cruiser limit & not the 84kg green wanted,

When Briggs got on the scales for the weigh-in I thought it was clever of him too (ie weighing in within the cruiser limit but not at the catchweight).

But looking at his condition bodywise immediately pre-fight, and hearing later how badly he'd trained prior to the debacle, his weight should have rung alarm bells to us.

In hindsight it's surely just a further example of how totally unprepared Briggs was for the fight.

Very true, whatever the reason, green got exposed
