Boxer Briggs fined over first-round loss to Green

Western Australia's boxing commission has fined Paul Briggs $75,000 for not declaring a medical issue which limited his ability to contest a world cruiserweight title bout in July which lasted just 29 seconds before he was knocked down by Danny Green
The Western Australian Professional Combat Sports Commission released its findings Wednesday and sanctioned Briggs and his trainer Billy Hussein for failing to disclose that issues with the boxer's nervous system meant he was not fit enough to participate in the IBO title fight.
Briggs received $200,000 for the fight but was heavily criticized for apparently going down very easily to a Green punch.
The commission cleared Green of any wrongdoing.
