RSR was just informed that WBO/IBO/IBF/WBA Heavyweight Champion, Wladimir Klitschko, 57-3, 50 KO’s, will be defending his titles in Switzerland on July 7th in a rematch with Tony Thompson.
Since the loss to Klitschko in 2008 ,Thompson has won five in a row, all by knockout, including wins over notable fringe contenders like Chazz Witherspoon and Maurice Harris. Klitschko, fresh off his win over the terribly mismatched Jean Marc-Mormeck, will be taking on a legitimate challenge. Mentally, we will see how Thompson reacts in the fight, considering he was knocked cold in their first outing.
Stay tuned to RSR for further developments.
