What's this guy's pedigree? I see he's 5-0, what's his amateur background?
Solid pedigree :lol: ....

"The fight, at a dinner show in Ashton-under-Lyne, lasted just 1min 58 sec, with Morris battered and finally floored by a right hand that Preston’s Thompson previously employed to smash forehands on the tennis circuit.

The 22-year-old had made the transition from tennis court, where he was a highly promising junior, to boxing ring after finding competing on the Men’s Tour too costly for him to develop further.

Thompson also says he felt there were certain barriers in tennis (“I doubt I would have been allowed to become the next Arthur Ashe”) that don’t exist in boxing."

He looks alright though. Very tall for cruiser. Moves and punches well. Fighting absolute no hopers.
 

One to watch

I like seeing him signing up young lads instead of fighting for the established bunch we have.

I remember him looking good the time I saw him.

seen him win an unlicensed boxing prizefighter up my way a few year ago. Looked head and shoulders above anyone ive seen at that level. Good to see him giving it a proper go

Possibly doesn't help that there is an Aussie Jordan Thompson tennis starlet as well
