Photos: Thompson Drills Price in British Boxing Stunner

British heavyweight champion David Price has lost his unbeaten record after a stunning second-round stoppage loss to American veteran Tony Thompson.

The 29-year-old was a hot favourite to continue his march up the heavyweight ranks, with a shot at the world title his ultimate goal.

But Thompson, an experienced campaigner whose only two recent losses came at the hands of world champion Wladimir Klitschko, had other ideas, and he ended things early with a brutal right hand.

The bout was seen live all over the United States on WealthTV and www.wealthtv.com will be replayed TONIGHT AT 10 PM EST.
