Goossen Tutor Promotions was informed today by Dr. Doug Frankel that heavyweight Tony 'The Tiger' Thompson is suffering from acute bronchitis and was given immediate orders to stay out of the gym and subsequently his plans to enter the ring next weekend (December 13) at the Morongo Casino Resort & Spa to face three-time world champion, James Toney, (70-6-3, 43 KOs) in a scheduled twelve-rounder.Upon receiving the news, Goossen Tutor Promotions matchmaker, Tom Brown acted quickly and replaced Thompson, with former world title challenger, Fres 'The Big O' Oquendo (29-4, 18 KOs). "I was training for a fight that was recently cancelled, and when I was informed that I had the chance to fight Toney, there was zero hesitation," said an elated Oquendo. "This was the opportunity I was looking for. It gets me right back into a position to challenge for a World Title." The second featured televised bout will showcase 2004 Olympic gold medalist and WBO #4/WBC #5 super middleweight Andre Ward (16-0, 11 KOs) in a ten-rounder against Estaban 'Rocky' Camou (23-4, 19 KOs).





Good thing for Toney! this is a more winnable fight for him.
