Liakhovich to Face WBO No. 3 Contender Shannon Briggs on Saturday, Nov. 4, At 9 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING From Chase Field, Phoenix, Ariz.


“My dad and my whole family are fight fans. When I was 12 years old, my father told me to try boxing, and I liked it. After a few tournaments, I decided it was fun.”

“For the (Lamon) Brewster fight, I was really focused and I knew what I needed to do. He was a good fighter; his best weapon was his left hook. I knew he was a tough guy that could take a punch. When they said I won, it was a great feeling; my dream came true.”

“My life has changed a lot. I get lots of attention, people recognize me. My financial situation is much better.”

“Shannon Briggs is a good fighter. He has fast hands. I think this is his last chance and he will come in the best shape of his life. He is capable of taking you out in a second. He has a powerful right hand, but it is not going to happen. I have more skills. I am a better boxer than he is. I have faster hands and better feet.”

KENNY WELDON – Liakhovich’s Trainer

“I think Briggs is a good person. He will come into this fight at his best. He has won nine fights in a row. Boxing has a lot to do with determination, and when you are fighting for the heavyweight title, you are going to come in at your best. He is a good puncher and he has a puncher’s chance.

“Sergei can fight any style. We are training differently for this fight than we did for the Brewster fight. Sergei is a hard worker. He has great determination and willingness to train. He is going to have that (WBO heavyweight) title for a long time to come.
