Price vs Thompson results: Liverpool stunned, Thompson wins by second round TKO

Alex Livesey

Tony Thompson silenced the passionate Liverpool fans today, stopping celebrated heavyweight prospect David Price in the second round.

Tony Thompson came into today's fight on the road against David Price a massive underdog, expected by most to be another rollover win for the heavily hyped puncher. Instead, the vocal fans in attendance at Echo Arena were stunned to silence when Thompson cuffed Price with a counter right hook behind the ear in round two, putting Price on the mat and unable to get his legs back.

It's the first loss of Price's pro career, as he falls to 15-1 (13 KO), his bubble quickly burst by a single shot from a 41-year-old veteran who was notably out of shape. For Price, it's a really devastating loss, not because he can't come back from this, because he certainly can. Wladimir Klitschko suffered some bad stoppage defeats before he found his groove and learned to use what worked, and protect what doesn't. Price could conceivably do the same; there have been questions about his punch resistance since his amateur days.

For Thompson, this is probably the biggest win of his career. Not only is it a major upset, but it will likely set up another good payday for him, perhaps against Tyson Fury.

On the undercard, Darren Hamilton and Kevin Satchell retained their domestic titles at junior welterweight and flyweight, respectively.
