Santa Fe, NM (September 24, 2016) – Bryant “Goodfella” Perrella took time out of his intense training schedule to meet with members of the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Fe Friday afternoon.
Perrella entertained a group of children at Holmes Boxing Club as part of a program with local Boys & Girls Club members. The Fort Myers, FL native is big on giving back to the community and recently started a program in his hometown called “Goodfella’s Great Students” where he rewards top academic performers. Shortly after arriving in New Mexico to finish preparations for his fight with Yordenis Ugas, Perrella was told of the Boys & Girls Club initiative and happily volunteered.
“I’ve only been in New Mexico a short time and the people here already make me feel like I’m the local fighter,” said Perrella, who risks his 14-0 record against Ugas Tuesday, September 27 on Fox Sports 1 at the Buffalo Thunder Casino in Pojoaque, NM. Spending time with children in the community was the least I could do. The kids were very excited to meet me and they brought smiles to my face just as I did to theirs. I’d like to thank Holmes Boxing and the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Fe for the opportunity. I look forward to entertaining local fight fans Tuesday evening and spending time with the children again in the future.”
