THOMPSON TO FIGHT ON MORALES UNDERCARD

Buffalonian Ross Thompson has been added to the undercard of the Nov. 27 pay-per-view bout between Erik Morales and Marco Antonio Barrera at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

Thompson (26-9-2, 17 KOs) will fight rising super middleweight Kelly Pavlik (22-0, 20 KOs) of Youngstown, Ohio, in a non-televised bout scheduled for 10 rounds. Thompson has slid since getting his shot at Fernando Vargas for the IBF junior middleweight title in 2000, winning only two of his past nine bouts.
