Darley Perez Inks Deal With Gary Shaw, Ken Thompson

Orange, CA - Thompson Boxing Promotions and Gary Shaw Productions have partnered in the past in signing promotional agreements with rising boxing greats such as Timothy Bradley, Yonnhy Perez. Today is no different as they have teamed up once again to ink the  WBA #5, IBF #12, WBO #12, Colombia's hard-hitting Darley Perez (23-0, 18 KOs).

Perez, who breezed past his latest opponent, veteran Oscar Meza by dictating the entire fight, made his ShoBox: "The New Generation" debut last Friday and stated, "I am excited to have signed with Thompson Boxing and Gary Shaw.  They have successfully promoted the careers of promising young boxers like myself , I am confident they have the blueprint to bring me to get me to a fight for a championship belt.  I will put in the work in the ring and make them proud."

"I believe that in Darley Perez we have a future champion in our hands," added co-promoter Ken Thompson.  "Darley is a hard working individual and a hard-hitting fighter.  He's the perfect combination of what a promoter looks for in a fighter. We are proud to have him as a part of our stable of soon-to-be champions."

Added, Gary Shaw: "Darley Perez is a bright, young star with a promising future ahead of him.  He has great body punching ability and is so accurate with his shots that it makes me think that boxing fans all over will get excited to see him. I think Darley has all the tools to be a great champion in the near future."

It seems that former champion and SHOWTIME commentator Antonio Tarver would agree with both co-promoters as he reflected on Perez's performance at last Friday's fight, "Perez looked sharp, his balance was good and he had the perfect angles. He did everything he should and I think he's going to be a heck of a contender in this division."

The Perez-Meza battle was a 10-round lightweight co-feature to WBC's super lightweight eliminator between Olusegun Ajose and Ali Chebah.

Don't miss the replay TONIGHT, Tuesday, Oct. 4 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on SHO Extreme. This last installment of SHOBOX:  The New Generation fights are also available On Demand until Sunday, Oct. 16.
