Thompson Gives Price A Second Chance

Tony "The Tiger" Thompson surprised a sold out crown full of  David Price fans on February 23. Thompson  (37-3, 25 KO's) landed a solid right hand that ended the fight sooner than Price (15-1, 13 KO's) planned, and leaving him with a shocking loss on his record. 

Thompson, 41, initially didn't like the rematch idea, but Price, 29, had the clause in the contract, so there wasn't much Thompson could do. Promoter Frank Maloney says that both Price and his trainer wanted the immediate rematch because they feel that the Thompson loss was a fluke.

Thompson will return to the Echo Arena in Liverpool, England on Saturday July 6, 2013 to face Price for the second time. The bout will air on WEALTH TV at 2:30 pm ET.
