Titles at Stake:
WBA, IBF and WBO Heavyweight Champion Wladimir Klitschko defends his crown against Tony Thompson for the second time in four years and gets rid of the challenger earlier than their first encounter. A straight right hand freezes Thompson at the end of the fifth before he collapses into the corner. Although Thompson beats the count, he never fully recovers and goes down again from a combination at the end of the sixth, collapsing on his side. Thompson gets up once more, but Referee Sam Williams stops the fight anyway.
