About Tony “The Tiger” Thompson: Promoted by Goossen Tutor Promotions, Thompson (36-2, 24 KOs), a 6-foot-6 inch, 250-pounder with an 81.5-inch reach, earned his nickname by virtue of his southpaw stance and reputation of being a vicious hitter with knockout power in both hands. Those qualities — combined with his intimidating size — contribute to Thompson’s dominance in the ring, which saw him go eight full years without a loss until his encounter with Klitschko, which most believe was Wladimir’s toughest defense since.
Thompson’s most recent bout was against Maurice Harris in Reno, Nevada in an IBF Heavyweight Title Elimination bout to claim an IBF #2 world rating. A determined Thompson made quick work of his opponent, knocking him down once in the second round, and ending the fight with another knockdown at 1:51 of the third round, earning the right to challenge the #1 IBF world rated contender, Eddie Chambers in a final World Championship Elimination bout.
