Eloy Perez To Broner: I'm The Answer To The Problem!

By Ryan Burton
 
BoxingScene.com recently caught up with Eloy "The Prince" Perez who faces WBO super featherweight champion Adrien "The Problem" Broner (22-0) on Saturday in St. Louis, MO. The fight will be aired live on HBO along with the Devon Alexander versus Marcos Maidana clash that serves as the evening's main event.
 
Perez opened his camp in Oakland, CA where he sparred with Michael Dallas (who defeated Miguel Gonzalez on ESPN last Friday) and Stan Martinez before moving his camp down to Oxnard to wrap up his sparring.
 
"Camp has been more than perfect. I sparred with Michael Dallas and Stan Martinez in Oakland.  Then we had good sparring in Oxnard with Robert Garcia's guys," stated Perez.
 
This fight will be Perez's HBO debut.  He has been a regular on Telefutura's 'Solo Boxeo' series and is looking forward to the prestige that fighting on HBO brings.  He also said that it is a privilege to get to this point and that many prospects get lost on the way to a title shot.
 
"Its an honor to get to this point. I'm pumped because it's do or die. I'm happy to be in St. Louis on HBO. Some people get sidetracked or don't get this far. I'm ready to go," Perez told Boxingscene.
 
Last year Broner struggled in his fight against Daniel Ponce De Leon who was fighting in the super bantamweight division for the first time. Despite the size disadvantage, Ponce De Leon came forward and pressured Broner throughout the fight.  Many observers felt that the Mexican fighter had earned a draw at minimum for his efforts.  Perez feels that he has the perfect game plan in place for Broner.
 
"We have put together a great game plan.  I didn't see the De Leon fight but I heard it could have went either way.  Pressure bothers him but all of the fighters he fought have stood right in front of him. You know me. I'm smart and fast. I stick and move. I hope he comes after me so I can catch him," Perez revealed.
 
Perez is coming into this fight with a chip on his shoulder.  He has been the subject of Broner's verbal taunts for months now.  Since the fight has been announced, Broner has turned up the heat even more while Perez has remained silent for the most part.  Perez feels that Broner is underestimating him and is chomping at the bit for a chance to shut Broner up when they enter the ring on Saturday.
 
"I want to shut his mouth.  I think people do underestimate me because of my knockout ratio. He definitely is going to feel my power," said a confident sounding Perez.
 
"I definitely think I am his biggest test. He has never fought a guy like me. I do think he is underestimating me and he is making a mistake. I think he will be in for a surprise.  On Saturday night I will be the answer to The Problem," he continued.
