Luis Collazo W10 Bryant Perrella... In Uniondale, New York, on the Premiere Boxing Champions undercard, former WBA welterweight champion Luis Collazo (38-7, 20 KOs) earned a majority decision victory over Bryant Perrella (15-2, 13 KOs) in their ten-round welterweight showdown. Perrella entered the ring with the reach and height advantage, but the veteran Collazo quickly strategized to walk through Perrella's jab to deliver power punches. Collazo started to inflict damage beginning in rounds three and four when he had Perella stunned several times against the ropes.
"Perrella didn't have much power, which allowed me to just stay on top of him and smother his punches," said Collazo. "I was able to play the aggressor and control the fight."
Collazo had to continue to stalk the increasingly evasive Perrella, but was able to show off his impressive ring savvy by cutting off the ring to implement his offense. Collazo had Perrella hurt badly in the late rounds of the fight, but Perrella was able to show enough toughness and athleticism to see the final bell.
"I've had a lot of fights that prepared me for what I had to do tonight," said Collazo. "I felt strong in there, but I'll know more once I look at the tape. I want one of the top welterweights next."
Marcus Browne W10 Lenin Castillo ... Marcus Browne (22-0, 16 KOs) worked through a mid-round knockdown on his way to a unanimous decision victory over Lenin Castillo (17-2-1, 12 KOs) in their ten-round light heavyweight bout. The judges saw the fight for Browne by the scores of 97-92 and 98-91 (twice).
"I wasn't consistent enough or as effective as I wanted to be tonight," said Browne. "I fought in spurts too much. I need to be more consistent to get the performance I want.
"The knockdown felt like a slip to me, but this is boxing. I just had to keep focus and move forward to get the win."
The Staten Island-native Browne showed off his impressive speed and jab through the early rounds of the fight, keeping Castillo's offense at bay. As the fight opened up in the middle rounds, Castillo caught Browne with a right hand during a wild exchange that knocked him off balance and caused him to hit the mat.
Browne was able to recover with ease and continued to show off his boxing skills throughout the remainder of the night, as Castillo was unable to replicate his round five success.
"I appreciated everyone who came out for me tonight," said Browne. "I'm ready to move on to the next challenge. I'm going to stay focused and be even better next time."
