Hennessy New Hard Hitter Lonnie B is a KO Success

Making his first appearance in the UK last weekend at Manchester’s Event City on the undercard of Fury v Pajkic was Buffalo Light-Heavy Lionell Thompson who put on a dazzling show stopping Phil “You Know” Goodwin in the second, the only other man to do this was Tony Bellew the rough tough scouser who recently went the distance with WBO champ Nathan Cleverly. Thompson is now 11-0 with 7 KO’s making him one to watch in the up and coming Light-Heavy prospects.

“I was very excited to fight in England for the first time,” 26-year-old Lionell said.  “I can’t wait to fight there again in front of those great fans.  I trained hard and was in great shape.  British fans got to see an up-and-coming star who delivered.” Thompson’s promoter Adam Harris of Hennessy Sports added “Not only is Lionell a dangerous fighter, he’s also true showman.  British fans really loved him.  He must have spent at least 30 minutes after his fight signing autographs for young fans.  We’re very high on Lionell Thompson.”

Thompson has been rated as high as No. 2 in his division as a U.S. amateur boxer and was a five-time New York Golden Glove plus three-time Empire State champ.

Daily Sport says – This is one prospect to watch out for.
