  5. Jonathan D Smith says:

    Amazing to see Teresa Perozzi in action tonight against a very strong and tenacious American fighter. A 10 round fight. One judge (the Bermudian judge) had Perozzi win 97-93 I think it was; both other judges had it 95-95 so it ended in a draw.

  6. Any news on Jeron gunness kickboxing fight

  7. proud bermudian says:

    I personally think Teresa won out right, her technique from foot work, delivery and movement was wayy better

    • Big Picture says:

      I was so impressed by the quality of the fighting. There were no losers last night. Every one of these fighters gave 101%!!! Perozzi was definitely prepared! Hats off to her and all the fighters, their family, their trainers, the promoters, the sponsors and all of those individuals that gave up their own time and money to give us all something to be proud of!

      Sorry 2 see the look on Tori Nelson face when Teresa was able 2 retain her title. From 1 boxer 2 the next Nelson deserved the win. Always proud 2 b bermudian but I’m not blind

  11. OZ says:

    Um with you there! I was rooting for Teresa and this was the best I have seen her fight but I thought Nelson was the aggressor for most of the fight and landed more solid blows. richmond should have his eyesight checked.LOL

  12. Maria Jacobs says:

    Guess you don’t believe that it was not a draw as you have seen fit not to allow my posts. Check with an authority like maybe Teresa or one of the officials. I will accept your apology after you do.

    • Bernews says:

      LOL! With all due respect, we will never apologize for accurate reporting. It was a draw, and that information came directly from the officials.
