Nelson-Perozzi II Expected To Sell Out in Bermuda!

A capacity crowd is expected when WIBA Middleweight champion Tori "Sho Nuff" Nelson (6-0-2) battles WBA Middleweight titlist Teresa Perozzi (9-4-2, one KO) of Bermuda for the vacant WBC Middleweight crown later tonight at the Berkeley Institute Gym in Pembroke, Bermuda.

This will be a 10-round rematch of the majority draw that took place on October 13 in Southhampton, Bermuda.  That bout was a true unification bout in which both boxers's titles were on the line along with the vacant WBC title.  Only the WBC belt will be up for grabs in this contest.

Both women weighed in at 158 1/2 pounds.  The referee will once again be Steve Smoger, who called the first bout one of the finest female middleweight contests he ever worked.

Nelson, by the way, is slated to defend her WIBA title on Saturday, March 30 at the Renaissance Hotel in DC.  Her opponent will be former WIBA and WIBF Junior Middleweight champ Maria Lindberg of Sweden.

Not to my knowledge. There was nothing listed. The Bermuda Sun did a nice job with round-by-round descriptions.
