Thompson hurt in attack!

Former world title challenger Ross “The Boss” Thompson (27-13-2, 17 KOs) is listed in fair condition at a Buffalo hospital after being attacked by a gang about 3:30 a.m. on Sunday. According to the Buffalo News, a large group of men stabbed him in the upper back and one of his arms. WIBV is reporting that the 35-year-old Thompson was also shot. He may have surgery today. Obviously his scheduled NABA light heavyweight bout against Chris Henry on Thursday in Houston will not take place. Police are seeking help from anyone with information.
