It’s been exactly 21 years since Bermudian boxer Teresa Perozzi made her professional debut.

Perozzi defeated American Nicole Conant by split decision at The Aladdin in Las Vegas in a four-round light-heavyweight contest on March 21, 2003.

The southpaw retired almost ten years ago after losing by technical knockout to Kali Reis, of the United States, at the Fairmont Southampton.

Perozzi enjoyed a successful career in the paid ranks, holding the World Boxing Association [WBO] middleweight title from 2011 to 2012.

She also challenged for multiple world titles, including the World Boxing Organisation [WBO] and World Boxing Council [WBC] middleweight belts.

Perozzi fought worldwide, with two bouts in Germany against top names Christina Hammer and Natalya Ragozina and a contest in Sweden against Aasa Sandell.

She finished with nine wins, five losses and three draws.
