At PREMIER, records matter. The illustrious Top 10 list contains the names of some of the best Athletes in the business. Placing on the leaderboard is the first step towards becoming PREMIER Heavyweight Champion. Now two more fighters are looking to add their names to that list. On Sunday, June 7th, Will Cuevas (1-1) and Dom “The Bomb” Vitalli (0-2) go one-on-one for that prestige.
Will Cuevas is one of the more unique stories at PREMIER. A former referee, Cuevas had also trained behind the scenes for his own time in the ring. After impressing PREMIER President and Head Booker John LaRocca, Will received a second match in the ring against “The Filipino Dynamo” John Redito (0-4) back at PREMIER VII. Not one to waste chances, Cuevas would deliver the “Money Drop,” his variation of the Blue Thunder Bomb, to his opponent to secure his first win at PREMIER. Now Cuevas is back and hunting for another victory to move closer to the Top 10. But that’s only if he can get past an Athlete with the biggest hunger in PREMIER.
Dom “The Bomb” Vitalli broke onto the scene at PREMIER in 2014 and made an impactful return this past spring. Unfortunately, Vitalli would come up short in both endeavors. At PREMIER VIII, a match against “Mr. Athletic” Jeff Cobb (5-2-1) was his chance to claim his first win, but the devastatingly quick attack of the “Tour of the Island” powerslam would leave Vitalli without his hand raised. Dom now returns to PREMIER with the hope that the third time’s the charm because he knows that a continuing trend could spell disaster on his hunt for the Heavyweight Championship.
With less than a month until PREMIER IX, Will Cuevas and Dom “The Bomb” Vitalli are preparing to give it everything they’ve got in order to move closer to the Top 10 rankings. The only way to find out who wins in this struggle for survival is to be there live at the I.F.D.E.S. Lodge – Portuguese Hall on Sunday, June 7th. Tickets are on sale now for just $10 each at Showclix.
