Eloy Perez Faces Ira Terry on October 28 in Salinas

Eloy Perez to Defend NABO Belt Against Ira Terry

By Ryan Maquiñana

Unbeaten junior lightweight contender Eloy Perez (22-0-2, 6 KOs) will defend his NABO belt against Ira Terry (24-6, 14 KOs) on Oct. 28 at Sherwood Hall in Perez’s adopted hometown of Salinas, Calif.

Eight weeks ago, Perez made a statement on national television by knocking out Daniel Jimenez in two rounds on TeleFutura, who will also broadcast this bout as well.

After a proposed WBO title fight with fellow Golden Boy stablemate Adrien Broner fell through at the negotiating table, Perez has seemingly turned his attention toward pursuing another world championship belt instead.

Following a 24-2 start to his pro career, Terry, a native of Memphis, Tenn., has lost his last four bouts by knockout against fighters with a combined record of 58-2.  Most recently, Mike Faragon took two rounds to stop him in August.

The card, entitled “Encore,” will be promoted by Golden Boy in association with Don Chargin Productions and Paco Presents.

Eloy Perez and Johnny Gonzalez have got to be the slowest paced fighters actively

Terry, early in his career, had tremendous up potential w/1 big win and now he's just an oppenent...easy win for Perez...his stable mate is undefeated Chris Redd who can't seem to buy a fight...Redd has talent and poor management..
