A native of Mexico, Perez’s aggressive style and knockout power have made him a favorite amongst Chicago fans since his pro debut almost four year ago. His last bout was a SOLO BOXEO televised war with highly regarded contender Jesus Soto Karass this past December in Houston, Texas.
In August of 2006, Perez won a decision over Francisco Rincon in an outstanding battle at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago. He brings a record of 14-5-1 (12KO’s) into the battle with Rivera.
The heavy handed Rivera, 4-3 (3KO’s) is a native of Nicaragua, now fighting out of Phoenix, Arizona.
Said Pesoli, “I’m very happy to bring Luciano back. His fight with Rincon last summer was an outstanding battle that our fans loved. He’s a true Mexican warrior and has consistently earned the respect of our fans with his terrific fights in the ring.
