|Abel “Truth Serum” Perry Frustrated With Boxing Opponent Withdrawals
By Media Report (August 9, 2012) Doghouse Boxing
Colorado Springs, CO. – Abel “Truth Serum” Perry is sick of opponents
pulling out of fights and the 6 ½ months wasted because of it.
a five bout winning streak intact Perry, 18-5 (9 KO’s), twice was
scheduled for a potentially career-changing match against Antonio
Margarito, but the “Tijuana Tornado” surprisingly elected to retire. To
make matters worse, the retirement took place following an initial
postponement due to an injury. After spending time in camp alongside
middleweight titlist Gennady Golovkin and stablemate Carson Jones, the
Colorado City, CO native signed to fight hard-hitting Emmanuel Steward
protégé Tony Harrison August 25 in Michigan .
agreeing to face Harrison, Perry’s manager Bobby Dobbs received an offer
for unbeaten Alex Perez in New York City . Out of respect, Dobbs turned
the Perez fight down because he’d agreed for Perry to fight Harrison .
he’s not recognized at the level of Margarito, Harrison, 9-0 (8 KO’s)
is very highly regarded and Perry was training hard to hand him his
first career defeat. To his total disgust, Harrison decided that he
wanted an easier opponent and backed out of the fight.
so frustrating because I signed the contract and was ready to go,” said
Perry. “ Harrison comes from Emmanuel Steward’s stable so I thought he
would’ve taken fight. He is a talented guy from a world class camp but I
would be the best opponent he’s ever faced. Maybe he was worried
because of my experience.”
Even with the recent letdowns, Perry’s still confident something big will happen in the near future.
committed to making a name for myself and hope to get back in the ring
as soon as possible. I want to step up and take on more tough opponents
in meaningful fights. I want to show people in the fight community that
I’m worth keeping an eye on.”
