Former heavyweight champion Shannon “The Cannon” Briggs looks to get back in the title hunt when he faces former WBO Latino titlist Raphael Zumbano Love Saturday evening in the main event of HD Boxing’s “Cathedral Rumble” at Remington Park in Oklahoma City.
A limited number of tickets for “Cathedral Rumble” are still available at www.stubwire.com/event/cathedralrumbleatremingtonpresentedbywarriorsforfreedom/remingtonpark/oklahomacity/7866/. Doors open at 7 pm and the first bout is scheduled for 8.
All fans and media are also invited to attend the weigh in 6:30 pm Friday at Hooters, located at 3025 Northwest Expressway in Oklahoma City.
One of the most colorful fighters in history, Briggs has dynamic power in both hands, notching 48 knockouts in his 54 victories. Since a gutsy decision loss against then-WBC kingpin Vitali Klitschko, Briggs has been a man on a mission, knocking out all three of his opponents in the opening round. The Miami based Brooklynite has been chasing Klitschko’s younger brother and current unified heavyweight champion Wladimir during the last few months, with the hopes that another victory could earn him a shot.
Briggs meets Zumbano for the NABA heavyweight championship over 12 rounds.
