Tony “The Tiger” Thompson of Washington D.C. on Saturday showed his TKO of fellow heavyweight contender David Price in February was no fluke when he again stopped Price inside the distance, in the fifth round. The bout took place at Echo Arena in Liverpool, Merseyside, England, the same place where Thompson upset Price via second-round TKO in their first bout.
Price decked Thompson in the second round Saturday, but Thompson made it all the way back, eventually stopping Price at 1:55 of the fifth.
Thompson, 41, is 38-3 with 26 knockouts. Price, of Liverpool, is 30. He is 15-2 with 13 knockouts.
