Bryant Perrella: I'd Love To Fight Jamal James Next!

The Armory in Minneapolis - The opening bout of FS1 PBC Fight Night featured Bryant "Goodfella" Perrella (17-2, 14 KOs) scoring a third-round stoppage of Domonique Dolton (22-3-1, 13 KOs) in their welterweight showdown.
 
The southpaw Perrella was effective early, leading his offense with straight left hands, as Dolton mostly tried to counter Perrella with right hooks and uppercuts. In round two, Perrella landed two straight left hands in the middle and then at the end of the round that hurt Dolton and forced him to retreat to the ropes.
 
"We were ready for whatever Dolton brought," said Perrella. "I have so many dimensions to my game. My team works with me on different styles and it was hard to say how he would come to fight. I figured he'd come with hard feints and pressure, but I knew my strength and my inside work would wear him out.
 
"We figured we would get the stoppage and hurt him. We've gained a lot of strength in the gym. I just knew that if I kept boxing him and breaking him down, I'd know when to go for the finish."

Perrella began to go for the stoppage early in the third round, quickly backing up Dolton to the ropes before unloading with a flurry of combinations. After sustaining the offense for more than the first minute of the round, referee Gary Miezwa halted the bout at 1:24, giving Perrella the TKO victory.
 
"This feels amazing, and if any other welterweights want this smoke, they're going to need some cough drops afterwards," said Perrella, who was then asked about a potential fight with Jamal James by FOX Sports reporter Jordan Hardy.

"If my team wants to do it, I'd love to fight Jamal James next. He's a great fighter who I respect. That would be a great showdown and I'm ready for it."
