Wladimir Klitschko: Hunted down by Briggs again, and on water (Video)

Written by
For the last six months, heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (62-3, 52 KO) has been stalked and taunted by the comebacking Shannon Briggs (56-6-1, 49 KO) who is apparently obsessed with obtaining a title shot.

Wherever Wlad goes, Shannon goes.  And the latter has proceeded to heckle, threaten and taunt the champion as part of his very public stalker act.

... And maybe it's not an act at all?

What if Briggs really is resorting to such spectacles in hopes of getting a title shot?

Late last summer and prior to this most recent incident, Briggs, out of nowhere, interrupted Wlad while the latter was eating lunch. The confrontation got somewhat physical and Briggs cut his foot on the glass that was broken during their brief altercation.

And during the Klitschko vs Leapai pre-fight presser in April, a shirtless, shredded, maniacal Briggs had to be restrained by security while presenting his case for a title shot to the media.

Now, apparently, Klitschko can't find sanctuary on water either. 

While Wladimir was paddleboarding in Miami this this morning, a wild-eyed Briggs rented a boat, took to the water and once again taunted the champion before bumping him off his paddle board.

"You crossed the line," replied an angry Klitschko.

Briggs, whose wild outbursts in Wlad's presence started in March, told TMZ, "I'm not getting off his ass until he fights me. He's a chump."

A former heavyweight belt-holder, the 42 year old Briggs is 5-0 with 4 knockouts since taking a 3 1/2 year hiatus from boxing in 2010.
