Nelson Battles Perozzi to a Draw in Bermuda; Salinas Wins Unanimous Decision!

This news just coming in:  The Bermuda Sun is reporting that The "All or Nothing" main event in Southampton, Bermuda between WIBA Female Middleweight champion Tori "Sho Nuff" Nelson of Ashburn, VA and WBA titleholder and local favorite Teresa Perozzi has ended in a 10-round majority draw.  Both ladies's belts were on the line along with the vacant WBC Middleweight title.

According to the Sun, the card was held in front of a sell-out crowd at the Fairport Southhampton. The Sun was updating the bout round-by-round up through the fourth round but then stopped until posting the result a few minutes ago.  The Sun posted the scores and one judge (the one from Bermuda) scored the bout 98-92 for Perozzi.  The other two judges saw the bout even at 95-95.

Nelson remains undefeated and this is the second draw of her career.  She is now 6-0-2.  Perozzi is now 9-4-2, one KO.

In the co-feature bout, Manassas, VA featherweight "The Bolivian Queen" Jennifer Salinas won a six-round unanimous decision to Karen Dulin of Mystic, CT.  Salinas won by shutout on all three cards (60-54).  Salinas is now 13-3, four KO's while Dulin falls to 2-12, one KO.
