Shannon Briggs calls out Tyson Fury in what would be if it happened, arguably the biggest meeting of trash talkers in boxing history.

Could you imagine the pre-fight build-up between these two characters, American Shannon Briggs and Englishman Tyson Fury?

Boxing hype would be taken to an almost ridiculous level. Dear God, the thought of it just there boggles the mind.

But hey, anything is possible in this business that we call the fight game, particularly in today’s times where the ability to sell a fight is more important than ever.

Selling such a bout would not be a problem for these two men to put it lightly.

The main obstacle standing in the way of such a carnival however would be the issue of, well, Tyson Fury coming back to boxing in the first place.

He needs to get his license back and get through some hurdles with UKAD first.

But provided he does, a Briggs fight could offer value to him as he obviously wouldn’t be going straight back to top heavyweight level but also would represent a name in Briggs – who’ll also be looking to bounce back from a bit of a break from the ring himself.

Earlier today on Instagram Briggs said:

“Y’all think he want smoke wit da Chizzamp or y’all think he gone pull a #DavidFeathers & run Forrest run??? #LETSGOCHAMP #LETSGOCHAMP#LETSGOCHAMP”

He followed that post up with the following colorful animation:
