Short Notice, No Problem; Pagliarulo to Make Pro Debut on Just Four Days Notice



Travis Lizotte "Full Contact Writer"


It's a common phrase around the fight game, perhaps even more so during the "Covid Era;" "If you stay ready, you don't have to get ready." That sentiment was echoed loud this week when Combat Zone Amateur Featherweight Champion, and New England Fights Amateur Featherweight Champion Tom "The Phenom" Pagliarulo (5-1, Amateur) signed on the dotted line, to make his Professional debut, this Thursday at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as part of the Main Card at Cage Fury Fighting Championship 92, which will be streamed live on UFC Fight Pass. Oft garnered around the region as the "Next" Featherweight Prospect to come out of New England, the "New England Cartel" protege Pagliarulo may be the best equipt amateur in New England to make the professional leap on just four days notice.
