Following his impressive victory over Cliff Couser last Thursday at the Tachi Palace Hotel & Casino in Lemoore, California, Tony “The Tiger” Thompson (31-1, 19 KOs) declared himself ready for his WBO World Heavyweight Championship Challenge early in 2008.
“I’m looking forward to the winner of (Sultan) Ibragimov and (Evander) Holyfield taking on his mandatory fight with me,” said Thompson, who gives the undefeated Russian (21-0-1, 17 KO) a slight edge to retain his WBO World Heavyweight Title against the former undisputed champion in Moscow on October 13.

Both of the big-time heavyweights on Saturday night’s Night of the Heavyweights card were victorious in dominant fashion…
Former heavyweight champion Michael Moorer stopped Mike Tyson look-a-like Cliff Couser in the first round of their fight. Couser actually took to the offensive early on in the fight, pushing Moorer against the ropes with combinations of lefts and rights. Couser landed a hard body shot while Moorer was backing into the ropes but Moorer was able to counter with a right hook that sent Couser to the canvas.
Couser was visibly knocked out and the referee didn’t even bother to administer a 10 count, declaring Moorer the winner.
After the fight, Moorer was proud of his training efforts coming into the bout:
“This is the reward of working hard to prepare for the fight,” Moorer said.
In the co-main event, former heavyweight champion Oliver McCall stopped Yamplier Diaz in the 7th round. McCall dropped Diaz with a left hook, short right combination and Diaz was unable to beat the referee’s count, ultimately ending the fight.

Apparently Michael Moorer’s boxing career isn’t over just yet.
These former champs just can’t stay away, can they?
The former light-heavyweight and heavyweight champion will make his return to the ring on December 9th against Mike Tyson look-alike and actual half brother, Cliff Couser.
