Mike Perez ends long absence on Price v Thompson bill

Prizefigher champion Mike Perez has been handed a slot on David Price’s Echo Arena bout against American Tony Thompson – ending fourteen months of frustration for the undefeated southpaw.

Perez, 27, boasts an undefeated record of 18 wins, with 12 stoppages and bulldozed his way to an impressive Matchroom tournament victory in May 2011, but has since found it hard to capitalize on his success with only a solitary win over Friday Ahunanya since.

The Ireland-based bruiser adds a welcome dose of clout to the Liverpool card, which so far has twelve bouts confirmed for the February 23rd BoxNation show, including Darren Hamilton v Steve Williams for the British light-welterweight belt and local fighter Kevin Satchell.

‘The Platinum Kid’ Adil Anwar also appears on the night as he looks to seal a match-up with the winner of Hamilton v Williams after amassing an 18-1 record on his way to English title and similar Prizefighter success.
