Krasniqi vs Thompson 16 Sep 2006 ?
Wednesday, August 09, 2006
This is still not official, however, there are some indications that the fight might actually happen. Here is excerpts from recent August interview with Tony Thompson by Geno McGahee, who talks about this forthcoming fight:

GM: You have taken on top 20 guys like Vaughn Bean, Dominick Guinn, and Yanqui Diaz and have beaten them easily. When do you see yourself taking on somebody in the top 10 and is there anyone that you have in mind.

Thompson: As soon as somebody in the top 10 gives me an opportunity, I will fight. I don’t think that it’s me waiting. They are avoiding me. They don’t want to take their chances on a tall southpaw that can actually fight. To them, it’s not worth fighting me yet, but I’m set to fight this guy down in Germany, Luan Krasniqi on the 16th of September. So when I win this fight, there will be no turning back. They will have to fight me.

GM: What do you expect from Krasniqi when you get into the ring with him?

Thompson: Well, I have actually sparred with Krasniqi. I know him a little bit. I spent three weeks in Germany sparring with him. He’s a tough, fast, hard-hitting fighter and I just expect it to be an absolute war because I’m coming in with the same mindset that I had with Dominick Guinn. I cannot lose this fight. This is the most important fight of my career. I saw him when he was knocked out by Lamon Brewster…so he’s going to be desperate and want this too. He wants to win one of these titles before his time is over. I expect an absolute war...

So, who is this guy, Tony Thompson alias "The Tiger"?

Record: W28 (17 ko's), L1, Total fights 29
Last fight: Won UD 12/12, 28.06.2006, San Jose - USA, vs Dominick Guinn, Vacant WBC Continental Americas Title
Birth name: Anthony Tyron Thompson
Alias: The Tiger
Nationality: US American
Reach: 81.5"
Stance: Southpaw
Height: 6'5
Trainer: Tom Browner
Manager: Nate Peake

So, if it does happen, its going to be a very interesting fight "The Lion" vs "The Tiger" as Thompson put it "an absolute war".
