Shannon Briggs WINS TITLE…NABA Heavyweight Title That Is – Raphael Zumbano Love Comes to Survive – BOXING NEWS

By Geno McGahee

Former WBO champ, Shannon Briggs, 55-6-1, 48 KO’s, didn’t make it 4 first round knockouts in a row and was forced to go the distance with the unwilling opponent, Raphael Zumbano Love, 34-8-1, 27 KO’s, taking a unanimous decision. Briggs scored two knockdowns. One in the first and then one in the final round, but most of the time was Briggs just following Love around the ring.

Love was the best recent opponent, but he is a journeyman at best. Going the 12 rounds was probably good for Briggs as he heads to one last title shot.
