Photos: Thompson Batters, And Stops David Price Again

Echo Arena, Liverpool, Merseyside - Heavyweight contender David Price (15-2, 13KOs) came close to getting revenge, but veteran Tony Thompson (38-3, 26KOs) battled back and got the TKO win in the fifth round. In February, Thompson stopped Price in the second round of a shocking upset and now repeats to show the first win was no fluke.

In the second, Price rocked Thompson and then later dropped him hard with a big right hand. Thompson barely made it up with a few seconds remaining. At the start of the third, Price rocked Thompson again. Thompson came back with both hands swinging as they traded hard shots.

They went back to trading in the fourth. Thompson was landing big shots to the head and body of Price. In the final minute Thompson had Price, who looked very tired, reeling. At the start of the fifth, Thompson was battering Price against the ropes. He wasn't defending himself and was issued a count by the ref. The referee waved it off as Price was hurt and very exhausted.
