Staggered several times in the eighth things began to look ominous for Thompson and in the tenth he went down having attempted a right, complaining that his arm was damaged. It soon became clear that Thompson had a real problem with his right arm and after he went down in the 11th he got up and walked to his corner where he was retired after 38 seconds.
