Tony Thompson: If I Was Younger, I'd Kick Scott's Ass!

ORLANDO - Malik "King" Scott (38-2-1, 13 KOs) won a heavyweight showdown with Tony "The Tiger" Thompson (40-6, 27 KOs) on Premier Boxing Champions: The Next Round on Bounce TV Friday night from The Venue at UCF in Orlando.
 
Scott controlled most of the action thoughout the 10-round battle using his superior movement to control the pace of the fight. As he has throughout his career, Thompson refused to give in and scored a big knockdown with a thundering right hand in round nine.
 
The fight would end up going the distance, with all three judges giving the bout to Scott by scores of 98-91, 96-93 and 95-94.
 
"He was just too fast. If I were younger I would have caught him. A prime Tony would have kicked his ass, but I'm 44 and the years are starting to pile up," Thompson said.
 
"Malik did a great job of staying away until I was able to catch him with one good shot. He just pitty-patted his way to victory.
 
"I would rate my performance a D at best. I was the aggressor but I didn't cut him off good enough until late in the fight. My coach kept telling me to go to the right but for whatever reason I only started going to the right late in the fight. That was when I caught him.
 
"It was an outstanding performance by Malik. He did what he's supposed to do to an older fighter."

Thompson just reminded me of Larry Merchant trying to put up a fight against Mayweather. Exhilarious.

Time for thompson to do a bit of couching or something , not really impressed with Scott but on occasion when Thompson did land apart from the knockdown, he seemed to do ok .Those punchers from Thompson were the ones…
