So much for a fluke! Tony "The Tiger" Thompson has scored a fifth-round TKO over David Price at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, England.
Thompson was dropped by a glancing Price right hand in the second round. However, Price may have shot his wad and Thompson took control the rest of the way.
Thompson dominated the fourth round and continued that brilliance by battering Price around the ring in the fifth. Thompson forced a standing-eight count before referee Marcus McDonald stopped the contest at 1:55 of the fifth.
Thompson is now 38-3, 26 KO's. Price falls to 15-2, 13 KO's.
