Fort Myers, FL (September 13, 2016) – Bryant “Goodfella” Perrella will look to take another step up the welterweight ladder when he faces contender Yordenis Ugas Tuesday, September 27 at the Buffalo Thunder Resort & Casino in Santa Fe, NM.
The bout is scheduled for ten rounds and is the main event of Premier Boxing Champions’ “Toe to Toe Tuesday” series on Fox Sports 1.
Ugas, who captured a bronze medal at the 2008 Olympics for his native Cuba, is 16-3 with 7 wins by knockout as a professional. On August 12, Ugas soundly defeated previously unbeaten Jamal James over ten rounds. The well-schooled Cuban has never been stopped and two of his defeats came via split decision.
To prepare for the challenge, Perrella’s been training with world class fighters from all over the world. The Fort Myers native has put in additional time in all aspects of his training from bag work to cardio, strength training and sparring. By pushing himself to the limits in his training camp, Perrella’s confident the hard work will help him accomplish exactly what he’s looking for on fight night.
“First and foremost I owe a special thanks to my great sponsor Dioxyme for helping make this training camp a great success so far,” said the 27-year-old, who is 14-0 with 13 wins via KO. “I’ve said all along that I’m planning to knock him out. He’s never faced anybody with power like mine or a welterweight of my stature that can box, bang and throw the right punches at the right time. He’s in for a real surprise on the 27th because I’m going to end his night early and show everybody in the welterweight division that I’m a force to be reckoned with!”
