Ben Walter Perlini

Home city: Port Hardy, British Columbia
Age: 37
Date of crash: June 15th, 2001

I took the day off of work at my full-time mill job to drive from Port Hardy to Nanaimo via Vancouver to do the press conference on my upcoming July 6th boxing fight at the PNE. Five minutes out of Nanaimo, at 6 a.m., I was injured in an alcohol-related crash, which cracked my ribs and resulted in plastic surgery on my right hand.
