  • Garbage scoring, sure Thompson scored the knockdown in the opening round, he did way too much running to win , it was all one pot shot at a time offense.

  • Thompson looked good with that movement. True display of hit and not get hit style. Showing supreme athleticism. Look forward to seeing him again.
