Chicago favorite Perez is coming off a 5th round destructive knockout over veteran Grover Wiley last Friday night in St. Paul, Minnesota. Since losing a very close decision in an eight round brawl this past August to Juan Buendia at the Hawthorne Race Course, Perez has put his career back on track with three knockout wins. He was last seen in Chicago hammering Jerome Elder on December 10th with a first round stoppage at the Aragon Ballroom.
The crafty and exciting veteran Sanders has built a reputation over his six year career for his crowd pleasing skillful performances and has been a fan favorite in his career at the Park West Theater, Elgin's Grand Victoria Casino and De Paul's Alumni Hall. He holds win over tough veterans Andre Cray, Otilio Villareal, Leon Pearson, Leonard Townsend and most recently stopped Frey Luis Sierra in the first round last October.
Said Dominic Pesoli, President of 8 Count Productions, "Its a terrific crossroads matchup. Perez has brought the heat to the welterweight division with his huge knockout wins, he dominated Wiley up in St. Paul last Friday night. Sanders is a very skillful veteran who has faced and beaten some very tough competition over the last six years. The winner should truly advance his career onto bigger fights. We're thrilled to present this matchup for our fans as this type of fight really personifies what 8 Count Productions is all about."
Also appearing on this terrific evening of professional boxing are hot local prospects, bantamweight Francisco Rodriguez, 1-0 (1KO) super middleweight Ottu Holifield, 2-0 and light heavyweight John Roman William, 14-5 (7KO's). Also making his pro debut is newcomer Gabriel Navarro.
