Heavyweight champ to get Native name

Shannon “The Cannon” Briggs, Honored With Warrior Name…

Shannon Briggs, Former Two Time Heavyweight Champion of the World, now a warriorShannon Briggs will be honored in the coming weeks by Native Indian Whitecap Dakota Reserve First Nation Sioux and Ojibwe tribes of Canada. Briggs, will be the first World Heavyweight Champion in world history to be given a Native Warrior name.

Being a full quarter Native Indian himself, Shannon accepts this honor with great pride. The purpose of a “sweat” is cleanse the soul, purify oneself; mind, body and soul. Others who have endured the heat of the ceremonial sweat state that it is 10 times hotter than an average sauna, which takes the internal temperature of the hut well above 140 degrees.

Ojibwe Medicine Man and Tribe Elder, Walter Linklater from Ontario will perform the historic ceremony in the town of Regina. While in Canada, Briggs will be visiting local schools, media outlets along with foundations directly related to Canadian Lung Associations in regards to his global awareness tour “Fight 2 Breathe.”
