TAMPA, Fla. – On Friday, June 1, 2012 Fight Night Productions and Ker’s WingHouse Bar & Grill are poised to take over the A La Carte Event Pavilion for Tampa’s longest-running boxing series, “WingHouse Fight Night.” In the night’s main event, the vacant USA Florida State Light Middleweight Title will be on the line, as two of St. Petersburg’s brightest prospects square-off, as Manny “Shake ‘Em Up” Woods (8-1-1, 3 KOs) takes on “The Mighty” Inka Laleye (4-1-3, 1 KO).
Woods and Laleye thrilled Tampa boxing fans at the “WingHouse Fight Night” event on September 9, 2011. Both fighters laid it on the line, neither giving an inch in six rounds of non-stop action. When the final bell rang, the judges at ringside scored the fight a majority draw. On June 1, it will be Round 7 in what has turned into the area’s hottest boxing rivalry.
“WingHouse Fight Night” will also showcase some of the area’s most talented and promising professional fighters including Tampa-native and heavyweight sensation, Kenny “Right Hook” Lacy (1-0-0, 1 KO), St. Petersburg prospects, Radivoje “Hot Rod” Kalajdzic (5-0-0, 4 KOs) Alphonso Black (2-0-1, 2 KOs), as well as Ft.Myers’ own highly decorated amateur, Bryant Perrella.
Lacy, the brother of former United States Boxing Association (USBA), North American Boxing Association (NABA) and International Boxing Federation (IBF) super middleweight champion, Jeff “Left Hook” Lacy, had an impressive-professional debut at February’s “WingHouse Fight Night,” scoring a devastating, third-round knockout. He will look to continue his climb in the heavyweight division on June 1st.
The undefeated Kalajdzic has become one of the most popular fighters to appear on the “WingHouse Fight Night” series because of his tremendous skill and devastating power. Each time “Hot Rod” has appeared at the A La Carte Event Pavilion, he has brought the fans to their feet, and his “Team Rod” supporters grow.
Rising middleweight prospect Alphonso Black (2-0-1, 2 KOs) will be looking to get back on the winning track after his toe-to-toe war with Victor Pacheco (1-0-1), that ended in a draw at February’s “WingHouse Fight Night.” Black is building quite the fan base at the A La Carte Pavilion by delivering two-sensational knockouts, and an all-action style of fighting.
Also in a feature bout, will be Ft. Myers-welterweight, Bryant Perrella (2-0-0, 2 KOs), who in his last fight, traveled to San Antonio, Texas to score an impressive fourth-round technical knockout of Nick Gonzalez (3-3-1, 1 KO).
Perrella, who announced that he had signed a co-promotional deal with Top Rank Boxing in January of 2012, made his professional debut on February’s “WingHouse Fight Night.” The former Olympic hopeful and three-time Sunshine State Game gold-medalist displayed lightning-quick hands and sensational power, dropping his opponent three times in the first-round, en route to a technical knockout victory and first professional win.
Also, featured on the card are a couple first time participants at “WingHouse Fight Night.” Welterweight, Clarence Booth (2-1-0, 1 KO), is a very popular boxer in Central Florida, and will be looking to make an impressive debut at the A La Carte. Undefeated Justin Jones (4-0-0, 2 KOs) has created quite a buzz for himself, and is known for his all-action style, which has resulted in a number of entertaining fights.
