Nicklow Faces Perez In Nationally-Televised Contest May 8 in Philadelphia!
Baltimore, MD middleweight Jessie "The Beast" Nicklow returns to action on Friday, May 8 when he faces DeCarlo "3Mendo" Perez of Atlantic City, NJ at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, PA. The eight-round bout is a co-feature contest that will be televised by ESPN2.
Nicklow (24-5-3, eight KO's) will be trying to break a two-bout losing streak. Nicklow lost a 10-round unanimous decision to Ryota Murata on December 30 in Tokyo, Japan. Prior to that bout, Nicklow was stopped by Scott Sigmon in the 10th round on March 1 in Lynchburg, VA.
Perez (13-3-1, five KO's) has won seven of his last eight contests including a fifth-round TKO of Tyrone Brunson on October 18 at the 2300 Arena.
This means we will have back-to-back Baltimore-area boxers on national TV over a two-week period. We have already reported that Emmanuel Taylor will be on TruTV against Antonio Orozco on Friday, May 15 in Phoenix, AZ.
