Mexican junior lightweight Sergio Thompson has scored 11 consecutive knockouts heading into an Aug. 17 clash with Tokyo's WBC beltholder, Takashi Miura, that is slated for Cancun, according to Golden Boy matchmaker Robert Diaz.
Thompson will face Miura (25-2-2, 19 KOs), a fellow 29-year-old who won the title by flooring Gamaliel Diaz four times on the way to a ninth-round stoppage in April.
"We're still working on the rest of the card," said Diaz. "But right now, that's what it looks like."
