    For those unaware, former lineal champ Shannon Briggs went viral with his hilarious stalking of Wladmir Klitschko:



    Unfortunately they never fought. You'd think after being annoyed by Briggs for so long Klitschko would give in and fight to take out his frustrations. Briggs was also known for harassing David Haye.

    The premise of the thread is: who do you think can actually make it through 3 months of training and press conferences without cracking?

    Rules:

    -Briggs knows his opponent's hotel room numbers (even if they change it). He knows their training schedule too.
    -Briggs knows their phone number!
    -they cannot hit Briggs.
    -they cannot sue Briggs or take him to court no matter what he does.
    -no calling the police or filing a restraining order.
    -no outside help (no asking another boxer to help them deal with the trolling and trash talk).

    Each fighter is guarranteed $50 million but whoever can make it through the 3 months without brawling or appearing in court gets an additional 50 million.

    Marciano would do it for $5 nevermind 5 million.

    of course with no money at stake he'd teach Briggs a lesson on the first day. Dempsey perhaps within the first hour

    In all seriousness Bob Fitzsimmons and Joe Louis have dealt with similar levels of bull**** in Corbett and Galento so they might be able to go the distance

    Evander Holyfield.

    I remember pre-fight before the first Tyson bout he was constantly trash talked and accused of saying he wouldn't fight a ra pist by Tyson's managers Horne and Holloway and EH responded with complete indifference and Zen like calm which I think was unsettling to these two jackasses.

    I'd wager he'd do the same with Briggs and use his incessant constant screams of "LET'S GO CHAMP" as a mantra to last the 3 months and collect his cash to pay off the interest on his multiple alimony's and umpteen child supports.

    Unfortunately they stayed strong because one guy (Haye) talked himself into a fight. Not a 2nd time!
    @young griffo pick: Holyfield stayed calm. No goading for him.

    Sonny Liston might just have beaten him up on the spot!

    Briggs was simply trying to create hype for matches as e had zero shot earning them in the ring ...pretty much a troll social media opportunist ..

    It is amusing I guess. It has gotten old and has been old for a long time.

    I think the Young George Foreman would have broken Briggs of the stalking habit for good...in fact, I think young GF would have just broken Briggs, period.

    Ali would gladly exchange in verbal warfare without risking turning it physical. Evander Holyfield would mostly likely take the high road and keep from attacking Shannon.

    As a fun aside, IF Briggs truly dared to step up to them, these guys would probably be least tolerant of the antics and would quickly turn things physical:
    Foreman
    Frazier
    Holmes
    Marciano
    Tyson
    Liston

    It might backfire given how goofy Baer was.

    Do you mean because of how he chased the Ali rematch?

    Hmm, that one is a mystery to me. Sometimes young George was easy going, even charismatic and humorous. Other times he was surly and growling and you better not look him in the eye.

    Either way, Briggs better not touch his food!
