Perez to fight April 15 in San Francisco

Unbeaten super featherweight Eloy “The Prince” Perez will return to the ring April 15 at Longshoreman’s Hall in San Francisco on a Telefutura “Solo Boxeo Tecate” show.

The opponent has not yet been determined, but Kathy Garcia, Perez’s manager, said she is seeking “somebody with a name” for her fighter, who will be fighting in the 10-round main event.

Perez (20-0-2, 5 knockouts) currently is ranked No. 2 by the WBO and is angling for a shot at the super featherweight title currently held by Ricky Burns. Garcia said she’d be willing to match him against any super featherweight in the world if the money and venue were satisfactory.
