Michael Perez to face new opponent Luis Sanchez on July 11
Lightweight standout Michael Perez will face new opponent Luis Sanchez in the HBO Latino-televised co-feature to the Mauricio Herrera-Hank Lundy main event on July 11 at the LA Sports Arena in Los Angeles. Sanchez replaces top-10 contender Sharif Bogere who withdrew due to a training camp injury.
Sanchez (17-3-1, 5 knockouts), of Cancun, Mexico, has racked up an impressive record boasting recent wins over Adan Mares and Alfonso Torres in 2015, and in 2014, over Miguel Beltran Jr., Adrian Padron, Jesus Cruz Bibiano, and Luis Gonzalez. Perez (22-1-2, 10 KOs) and Sanchez will fight a scheduled 10-round bout with the NABO title on the line.
Also, new to the undercard, Irish amateur star and Los Angeles transplant Jason Quigley (6-0, 6 KOs) will now face Tom Howard (8-3, 4 KOs), of Trenton, Michigan, in a non-televised six-round super middleweight bout; and undefeated lightweight prospect Zachary Ochoa (11-0, 5 KOs), of Brooklyn, New York, will kickoff the night facing a yet-to-be-announced opponent in a non-televised six-rounder.
