Ok, so everyone knows about Briggs' antics, harrassing the Heavyweight champion, calling him out, of course Vitali whooped him, but had they both been in their prime, who would've won?

Prime Klitschko, imho

Really? :/ Briggs beat George Foreman.

Different era, different conditioning.

Boxers (or athletes in general) these days are better conditioned than they were before. Science and technology has pushed the boundaries of peak human conditioning. Even though heavyweights look slow and cumbersome these days, they hit harder and are more durable than heavyweights from the past.

Briggs has been on a roll lately though, he has been utterly destroying his opponents from what I've seen.

Briggs fought a 48-year-old Foreman. Nothing special about that. He also lost to Lennox Lewis and Vitali Klitscho. He's not beating Wladimir in his prime.

As for Vitali... I'll admit Briggs got utterly destroyed in that fight.

But to be fair, Vitali is usually regarded as better Overall then his little brother Wladimir.

Its not like age is an issue, as Briggs is very close in age with Wladimir.

Like I said before though, Briggs has been destroying every opponent thrown his way since his comeback.

Briggs had a prime..? The Klitschko Brothers dominated the heavyweight division longer than anyone in the modern era. Someone has been smoking crack and people should never smoke a drug named after a body part.
