'Sho Nuff' Nelson to Battle for Three World Titles in Bermuda Oct. 13!

WIBA (Women's International Boxing Association) Middleweight champion Tori "Sho Nuff" Nelson will put her title on the line and will try to win the WBA Female Middleweight championship and the vacant WBC title when she takes on Warwick, Bermuda's Teresa Perozzi in a 10-round contest on Saturday, October 13 in Southampton, Bermuda.

The undefeated Nelson (6-0-1) won the WIBA title in her last outing -- an impressive 10-round unanimous decision over Vashon Living on February 11 at the Patriot Center in Fairfax, VA.  At one time, Nelson held the WBC championship defeating Lorrisa Rivas by 10-round split decision in July of 2011 in Port of Spain, Trinidad.

In the most recent issue of Ring Magazine, Nelson was ranked the third-best middleweight in the world behind Germany's Christina Hammer and Maria Lindberg of Sweden.

This is all the more amazing when you consider Nelson's back story -- a single mom of two teenagers who holds down three jobs. This and other aspects of Nelson's life are featured in a brand new documentary by Jeff Riegel entitled Tori Nelson: Fighting For Her Future.  Here is that documentary:

Tori looks great and carries herself like a champion should.
The obstacles and hurdles she faces are only making this lady stronger.
Best of luck to her.
