This Is The Most Truthful Post-Match Interview We’ve Ever Heard
The most honest athlete usually tends to be a fighter. After a big fight, the winner will come out defiant. He'll talk about how he wants his next match to be for the championship, how awesome he is and how much he is going to drink later. Following Brock Lesnar's win at UFC 200, he went all patriotic on us. Following every Floyd Mayweather win, we heard all about how much money he just made. Several years ago, after Tony Thompson won a fight against David Price (no not that David Price), well he took the post-fight interview to places we've never seen before.
So who is Tony Thompson? He is a heavyweight boxer that for a while was Wladimir Klitschko's toughest challenger. He lost twice to the former heavyweight champion of the world and since then has never really rebounded. However after that fight against Price, Thompson gave us what has to be considered the great interview in the history of sports. This is better than any Cosell/Ali sound byte, better than Kevin Garnett, hell better than Ron Artest making a commentator say Queensbridge.
Thompson is so ecstatic following a 2013 victory over Price that he dropped an f-bomb, called the (now) heavyweight champion Tyson Fury a pussy and talked about how he's going to break his wife's hip when he gets home. Thompson said she's going to feel the pain. Although their may be a little bit of pleasure, Thompson says, that his wife is going to be crippled in the morning. Thompson then finishes the interview asking for someone to donate a wheelchair to help Mrs. Thompson.
This is real and on live television.
