Danny needs to throw Briggs a lifeline for two reasons.

1. Briggs will hang it up after getting beaten, and
2. The fans want it !!!

Sucks, he's one of our top fighters. Green-Briggs would be some kind of send off. Who knows though, a win over Green and more likely than not he would continue on for some more bouts.

Briggs somehow always manages to escape criticism on this board and in the media. I honestly don't know how he does it.
He lost focus on hs own career, when he started to feature on Foxtels "Celebrity poker challenge" and commentate on Mundine fight nights. He also released a book, all without actually becoming a champion of any kind. Eeveryone has been way too easy on him!

He should stay as a boxing commontator.
He is probably the best Aussie based boxing commontator going around today.

Then again anyones better than the woeful Barry Michaels.

Sad news from a fan's point of view, but it's his life and decision, so his fans ought to support whatever choice he makes.

I think he's done enough in both the boxing and kickboxing worlds to warrant a book, and from what i've heard its a good read.

If Tim Henman feels he's done enough in life to make an autobiography, then Briggs should be aiming for a trilogy.


But seriously, the book is more about his life, and not just his boxing achievements. He was also a kick boxing world champion at a fairly young age, so even his achievements in sport warrant him making an autobiography.

I love Paul Briggs. But he is more of a family man now. I feel for the man. He will always be known for his wars with Tomasz.

Paul will always be the man.

This thread just reminded me i had a dream last night where Briggs kids died. I hope i'm not too psychic at the moment.

I think he's been out of the ring for too long now to come back to the level he was at. Still i think he could make some entertaining fights, i'd like to see him fight Diaconu, that would be a good one and a good win for Briggsy.

Briggs is far from retired. He's moved up to Qld, will be trained by ****** Footit and has his sights set on 168lbs.

He'll be targetting you know who...

Apparently with the correct diet he shouldn't have too much dramas getting down to 168lbs.
