Arguably that was not even Thompson's biggest upset win over a prospect. I remember this Welsh prospect, agreeing to fight a late sub 'jorneyman' to save a main event in 'Seconds Out', in a catchweight contest by the name of 'Adrian' Thompson. That Nicky Piper was a sharp cookie, has a huge IQ, and is a MENSA memeber.

Forgot about Barkley putting Hearns into a short coma.

With Rothmann, I had more hope for Thompson because I didn't realise how shop-worn he was.

The Cat certainly gave us some great moments: I was gutted when a shoulder injury cost him the win against the surprisingly dangerous Ralf Rocchigiani.
