You're ridiculous man. First you get all PMSy when people dare suggest that Drews may have thrown the fight, now you have the gall to say that Briggs made up the stuff he mentions in his book.

Who are you anyway? by the looks of things, you seem to be looking down on everyone here calling us pissants, ect. Are you a boxer? Going by your atrocious spelling, you've probably had a few L's on your record that have come by way of devastating KO's.

Maybe thats how it works, I'll go off and become half retarded and come back here on my high horse looking down upon everyone else. Though obviously I'll still only be on even terms with you.

Actually shiner, I have known people in my past who lived in the exact same world Briggs' writes about in his book, so I don't think it is that far-fetched to believe he is writing about true events.

It certainly rings very true to my ears, and I have never actually been a part of that life, I've just known people and met others through them who inhabit that world.

Shiner talking again without knowing whats going on.

I knew both Nathan and Paul Briggs back then.....in 93 to 95' because I worked doors in the valley and I know some of the shit in that book is real for sure. I also know guys that know him alot more than I did and they know the book to be very true.
