On Friday night, Sep. 16, light heavyweight contender Lionell “Lonnie B” Thompson got back in the winner’s circle with a clear-cut eight-round unanimous decision over Chicago’s Donovan George. Thompson (17-4-1, 10 KO’s) was too sharp and agile for George (25-6-2, 222 KO’s), and registered a knockdown late in the match before claiming his victory.

Watching from ringside, amongst others, was Thompson’s promoter Floyd Mayweather of Mayweather Promotions. Mayweather defeated Andre Berto in September of last year and walked away from the sport afterwards, with no indication that he will be returning.

Sitting ringside during the bout was Tabiti’s promoter Floyd Mayweather. And while it’s not surprising to see the retired pound-for-pound king around the scene and supporting his fighters, it was the two men who were flanking Mayweather who caught our attention.
