Fort Myers, FL, December 11, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Bryant “Goodfella” Perrella, 15-1 (13 KO's), returned to the ring with a hard-fought eight round unanimous decision victory over talented Alex “Chi-Town Heat” Martin, 13-3 (5 KO's), Friday, December 8.
The eight round welterweight bout took place at the Hialeah Racetrack in Hialeah, FL and aired on FS1.
Fighting for the first time in 14 months and coming off a severe leg injury, Perrella looked to start quickly. The Fort Myers native came out aggressive and decked Martin with a picture perfect right hook in the opening round. The confident Perrella continued to be the aggressor while the Chicago-based Martin picked his spots and relied on movement. Martin found some success later in the fight but Perrella's power and punch output earned him a well deserved victory.
Scores were 79-72 twice and 77-74.
“It felt great to come back,” said Perrella. “I didn't feel any ring rust and I'm satisfied with my performance. I controlled the fight with my jab and ring generalship (even after) he went into survival mode. I'm back and ready for whoever they put in front of me. My goal is still to become a world champion!”
