Light heavyweight Lionell “Lonnie B” Thompson (14-2, 9 KOs) continues on his personal path of retribution this Saturday night as he takes on Ryan “The Irish Outlaw” Coyne (21-1, 9 KOs) at Resorts International Hotel & Casino, Superstar Theatre, in Atlantic City, New Jersey. “I’m ready to destroy this kid,” 28-year-old Thompson said. “I’m excited and looking forward to Saturday night. I can’t wait to fight. I’ve learned how to be a professional boxer. I’m sky-high and in top-top shape. I take every opponent seriously. I respect Ryan Coyne but he has been built-up and protected. I’ve heard a lot of people are picking Coyne or that it’s a 50-50 fight at best. A lot of people don’t know how good a fighter I am but they will Saturday night. I’m going to give fans the type performance they really want to see. I’m stepping up to prove myself.
Thompson vs. Coyne is the 10-round co-feature on a Main Events-presented event, “Road To Redemption,” airing live on NBCSN and headlined by a heavyweight clash between Amir “Hardcore” Mansour and Kelvin “Price Is Right” Price.
