The two connected with each other in an interview hosted by IFLTV. While both men verbally agreed to lock horns in a boxing bout, we might see an epic heavyweight crossover happen. Meanwhile, Jackson has already shocked the fight community with his hilarious trolling of Briggs.

Rampage Jackson said, “Hey, it’s Mrs. Shannon Briggs, okay miss. You got a girl’s name you gotta put miss. Miss Shannon.”

“Let’s go gramps, let’s go.”

After Jackson’s below-average stunt at Bellator 237, it seems he has reached the end of his combat career. However, the 43-year-old is a top-tier combatant, boasting several big wins under his name. So, a move to the squared circle seems to have grabbed his attention. Meanwhile, it can also bless him with a lucrative payday and both Briggs and Jackson could have aimed for that.

As of now, the fight is unofficially booked and seems to have impressed several fans. Briggs and Jackson are heavy-built and pure hard-hitters. So, it would also be a stylistically entertaining bout. Meanwhile, they are also trash-takers, which might produce several uncanny moments in the build-up to their fight. But will it be a worthy contest?

Despite having five straight KOs in his last five fights, Briggs hung his gloves in 2016 with a record of 60-6, including 53 KOs. So, he is undoubtedly a terrific puncher to go against. However, Rampage Jackson also holds sheer experience to his corner. In an MMA career which reflects 38 wins and 14 losses, Rampage Jackson has held the world title multiple times.

So, he can rightly look into the eyes of Briggs, but as an underdog inside the squared circle. As the fight looks likely to happen in a few months, we can expect both men to come up with explosive game plans in the mix.
