Shannon Briggs knocks out Emilio Zarate in Round 1

44-year old Shannon Briggs impresses at the undercard of David Haye vs Arnold Gjergjaj's heavyweight fight at the O2 Arena, in London, United Kingdom. Briggs still has what it takes to knock out opponent 10 years younger.

Briggs (60-6-1, 53 KOs) chanting "let's go champ! let's go champ!" and then he said "look at me people, I'm 44 years old, but I'm motivated!" during the Boxnation interview outside the ring right after he stops his opponent Emilio Zarate in the opening round.

Right after the bell, Briggs wasted no time went after his opponent, and landed heavy blows. Left to the head then to the body from Briggs sent Zarate to the canvas. And from the look at it there's no way Zarate will be able to continue as he was badly hurt. The referee stopped the fight in the very first round.

With the win, it seemed Briggs positioned to have a crack at David Haye. That of course if the "Haymaker" gets fast his opponent is in the main event.
