Shannon Briggs and Wladimir Klitschko in Food Fight at Hollywood Restaurant (Video)
Two heavyweight boxers decided to go a few rounds in Hollywood, Florida, the other day. Unfortunately, the incident occurred in a restaurant instead of a ring.
The bizarre incident occurred at Mama Mia Italian Ristorante in Hollywood, where Wladimir Klitschko was enjoying a quiet lunch.
Apparently, Shannon Briggs barged in and started eating the heavyweight champ's food, saying, "What you do, I do, champ."
Klitschko then poured a glass of water -- all over Briggs' head. You can probably guess the chaos that ensued.
In what appears to be an iPhone video of the incident, a voice can be heard saying, "Take it outside." Briggs leaves, but not before some tables are thrown around.
It looks like Klitschko won this fight since TMZ reports that Briggs had to go to a local ER to get treatment for "cuts on his foot and leg from broken glass."
This is the latest in a string of attempts by Briggs to provoke Klitschko into giving him a fight. Earlier in the week, Klitschko tweeted that Briggs rushed into a gym where the boxer was training; Klitschko posted a two-minute video of the altercation:
Yesterday I had a special guest. Some rumble in the gym!
