No Holds Barred: The Vitali Klitschko-Shannon Briggs Tragic Farce

On this edition of No Holds Barred, host Eddie Goldman analyzes the one-sided beating by WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko of Shannon Briggs on Saturday, October 16, in Hamburg, Germany. Briggs managed to survive 12 rounds of punishment from Klitschko, but, according to news reports, had to be hospitalized and taken to an intensive care unit in Hamburg after the fight. We thus discuss the background to this fight and what it says about boxing.
