Klitschko & Briggs

Boxers Brawl Over Bowl of Pasta

8/2/2014 5:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

080114_briggs_klitsch_launch
Current heavyweight champ Wladimir Klitschko and ex-champ Shannon Briggs went at it in a Miami restaurant in a scene straight out of Rocky III -- and now we have the video.

TMZ Sports broke the story … Klitschko was enjoying a bowl of pasta at Mama Mia's Italian restaurant on Friday when Briggs walked in and started taunting Wlad by eating food out of his bowl.

You gotta see what happens after that, but it gets ugly for Briggs. As we told you, he ended up going to the hospital to get glass removed from his foot.

The whole scene is awesome and bizarre -- but kinda stinks of Clubber Lang-Rocky Balboa. Especially since this scuffle went down just days after Briggs similarly interrupted a Klitschko training session.

Both camps swear the beef is real, and not just promotion. So … mangia! For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!

here we go again. just as in the case of tiny little Orlando & somehow tinier littler Justin, this is not a "brawl". OB & JB, in all probability, aren't equipped to "brawl", even if they did go at it. I imagine lots of slapping & yelling ***** & bitch at each other, until the 30 second mark, where they both get tired...poor little things. but back to these other 2 publicity whores, was that a "brawl"? really? obviously staged, and somewhat funny, but even still, where was the "brawl"? next time you feel like running a story about a brawl, send me the video first. I'll review it for you & let you know if I'm going to let you use that word. there's sensationalizing & then there's just plain misinformation . that, sir, was the latter.

I stopped watching boxing years ago because they never let the top guys fight. In MMA there is rarely a top guy that doesn't get an opportunity to earn a fight at the championship.

Fake. It's a promotional stunt to get us to care about this scrubs. They will fight soon in the ring and we still won't care.
