Disappointment filled the ring at the conclusion of the Teresa Perozzi and Tori Nelson - All or Nothing WBC Middleweight Title fight at the Fairmont Southampton.
The pair battled toe-to-toe, landing punch after punch but in the end Perozzi kept her WBA Middleweight Belt and the WBC Middleweight Belt that was once held by Nelson remained vacant after the three judge’s decisions were announced.
