Perry explained his decision prior to the fight and said he hoped it'd turn his losing streak around.

"This is a 'Platinum' Mike Perry fight, bro, and there's one person in this world who deserves the opportunity for that front row seat," Perry said per Fox Sports. "That's the most beautiful thing that I ever saw. It's my girl, Latory Gonzalez.

"(Gonzalez) is new motivation, the best motivation and the motivation I've been looking for my whole life.

"What does a guy fight for? Deep down, the animalistic features we have say that 'if I could beat that guy and bite his neck before he bites mine, I get to take the pretty girl home.'"
