SUNDAY, MARCH 11: Boxing champion Teresa Perozzi hailed the crowd at last night's Fight Night as the best she had ever fought in front of.
Perozzi retained her WBA Middleweight title after the grueling fight with April Ward went the distance and judges ruled her the winner.
She told the Sun: "The reception I received when I walked into the ring was just incredible.
"It was the best reception I have ever received in a fight.
"The support from the crowd was just amazing."
Perrozi had predicted the fight would not go the distance, but she was just happy to get the win.
She added: "The win was the most important thing.
"When you look back on a fight there are always things you say you should have done. But I got the win and that was what mattered.
"She really only caught me clean with two or three punches.
"I made sure I kept coming forward and that counted for a lot at the end of the day."
Perozzi now wants to fight American Tori Nelson for the WBC belt.
She said: "After the experience of fighting in Bermuda last night I would love to get her down here.
"To fight in front of a crowd like that again would be amazing.
"I'm feeling good about the shape I'm in at the moment and would love unify the two belts."
