IBF Bantamweight Titleholder 20 1 1 (14)
Last Year s Ranking: Unranked
Status Report: You can t blame Perez for not knowing Joseph Agbeko could box and move the way he did in their rematch (L 12). Who did? Their first meeting was a riveting punch a thon; we re surprised they weren t throwing punches at their cornermen between rounds. And it was Perez who forced the pace. It was the same in his war with Abner Mares (D 12). He is a hard guy to beat.
Future: An interesting meeting with Vic Darchinyan in the loser s bracket.
