Cruz Stops Thompson.

Undefeated Jose Luis Cruz stopped fellow American Vincent Thompson in the eighth round of their scheduled ten-round super welterweight fight Friday night at the Agua Calientes Casino. The twenty-five-year-old Cruz, 33-0-2 with 28 knockouts, ended the fight at 1:42 of the eighth round with a barrage of body shots that put Thompson to one knee on the canvas and prompted the referee to stop the bout. Cruz, ranked No. 13 by the World Boxing Council as a welterweight, won every round of all three judges' scorecards and led 70-63 when the bout was stopped. The thirty-six-year-old Thompson, fighting for only the second time in the past seven years, dropped to 22-5.
