Repeat: Thompson stops Price again!

Tony Thompson made it two for two as he took out former Olympic silver medal winner David Price for the second time in just over three months with a fifth round stoppage at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, England.

After chess match of a first round, the second was nothing but action as Thompson tried to rough up Price and landed a hard left that startled Price.  Later in the round, Price landed a hard right that drove Thompson to the ropes and seconds later deposited Thompson on the canvas from a hard right hand.  Round three was more of the same as Price started the round by rocking Thompson with a hard right to the top of the head.  Thompson came back to land some lefts and uppercuts and Price walked back to his corner looking winded.  Thompson had a strong round four as he rocked Price with a sustained assault with body punches and left crosses.  Thompson battered a now bloody price with a ferocious assault until the referee administered a standing eight count in the corner.  When the count was completed, Price could not continue and Thompson scored his second consecutive stoppage over the former British Olympic hero.

Thompson, who twice challenged Wladimir Klitschko for the Heavyweight championship of the world now, is clearly back at the head of the line and his record is now 38-3 with 26 knockouts.  The 6’8″ Price falls to 15-2.

“Tony Thompson proved that Heavyweight boxing is alive and very well in the United States”, Said Charles Herring, President of Wealth TV

“We were glad that we were able to bring the fans both of these fights and this especially was one of the best Heavyweight fights in a long time.  Tony has a lot of fight left in him and we look forward to sitting down with him and hopefully continuing a relationship with him.  For someone to score two knockouts in three months over the guy who was just named the ESPN prospect of the year is a huge accomplishment”

“We said when we first got into boxing that we were committed to bring the most exciting fights that were either title fights or fights that had big implications and this fight had both and we look forward to providing more outstanding boxing content with some big announcements shortly.”

In a back and forth slugfest, Kevin Satchell barely escaped retaining his British and Commonwealth Flyweight titles with a razor thin unanimous decision over Iain Butcher in a battle of undefeated fighters.

In round two, Butcher almost ended things as he landed a huge right and left hook that rocked Satchell.  He followed up with qa flurry that sent Satchell to the canvas.  Satchell was lucky to get out of the round.  He started boxing and steadied himself but Butcher would still land some solid shots. The two traded shots for the rest of the fight with the highlight being toe to toe warfare that finished out round ten.  Butcher landed the harder shots but Satchell boxed well by throwing combinations from the outside.

In the end, the judges preferred Satchell’s work rate as he scored the 115-113, 115-113 and 115-114 decision.

Satchell is now 11-0.  Butcher runs into tough luck is now 8-1.
