Perrella vs Ramos FULL FIGHT: February 15, 2020 – PBC on FOX

One second. That’s what was left. One second. It saved Abel Ramos. One second. It spelled Bryant Perrella’s doom.

Round after round, Perrella outboxed Ramos. He was able to get out of harm’s way when Ramos tried pressing him. It looked like Perrella was heading to a unanimous 10-round welterweight decision.

But no one, apparently, told Ramos the fight was over.

One devastating left uppercut jolted Perrella’s head back and he collapsed to the canvas in the waning seconds of the 10th and final round. He made it to his feet but, moments later, a right hand deposited him on his trunks for the second time. Referee Jack Reiss reached the count of nine, when the 10-second, round-ending clapper sounded. Perrella was visibly in trouble.

Reiss thought he was in too much trouble and ended it with one precious second left.

At the time of the stoppage, Perrella (17-3, 14 KOs) was up 88-83 on judges David Hudson and Benoit Roussel’s scorecards, and 87-84 on Mike Fitzgerald’s card.

“This is boxing,” Perrella said. “It’s like Meldrick Taylor and Chavez. These things just happen. I’m not going to take anything away from my opponent. I was winning every round convincingly. What can I say? There was second left in the 10th round. It’s like a needle in the haystack. It is what it is.

“Everything was going well and I was winning the fight, round by round. I don’t know. This is boxing. That’s the thing about the sport. It is what it is. There’s nothing I can do about it. I’m not going to make up any excuses or take anything away from my opponent. It’s just an experience that you go through in life and you have to overcome it. Absolutely I’d like to do it again with him. We can get a rematch in for sure.”

Ramos (26-3-2, 20 KOs) won for the eighth-straight time.

“I know the fight’s not over until it’s over,” Ramos said. “That’s the game. I’ve been sick for two weeks. But no excuses. I wanted to come here and perform.

“I watched the Chavez-Taylor fight like 10 million times and I never thought I’d be in something like that. It just goes to prove that fights are never over till it’s over. You have to fight every single second of every single round.

“Perrella’s a tough fighter. He’s a strong, strong fighter. I have nothing but respect for him. I expected a tough fight and that’s what happened.

“I want all the welterweights. I’d like to have another big TV fight and go out there and prove myself.”
