I’ve only recently started frequenting Reddit, mostly because it’s a treasure trove of creative humor and sometimes sincere conversations and intriguing debate. Needless to say, I definitely feel my age when trying to understand the lingo and hip Interweb speak, but for the most part the AMA (Ask Me Anything) threads are good for passing time on slow days. Rarely, though, does an athlete allow Redditors (am I saying that right?) to toss questions at him, but yesterday provided a refreshing change when former WBO heavyweight champion Shannon Briggs created his own AMA.
The thread has grown to more than 1,200 questions and comments and I assume that Briggs is still getting to them, but after the jump I’ve collected and organized (but not edited, because I respect the sanctity of poor Internet grammar) the questions that he has answered thus far. I only saw a few posts touching on the subject, but if I could ask one question it would be: What was it like having your nose broken, biceps shredded, left orbital fractured on top of a second facial fracture, and an ear drum blown in an all-out melee against Vitali Klitschko?
Because I imagine it would hurt a little.
