Former Marquez Trainer Confident That Perea Can Win

by Ronnie Nathanielsz

A former trainer of Juan Manuel Marquez, Ernesto Salgado Garcia is handling Mexican Jose Emilio Perea (22-2-0 14KO) who will battle all-action southpaw Jimrex Jaca for the vacant WBO Oriental light welterweight title at the Waterfront Hotel and  Casino in Cebu on Saturday.

Cebu-based Mexican Mike Lopez who helps out most of the Hispanic fighters who see action in the Philippines quoted Garcia as telling him “we know the game plan to beat Jaca. We trained hard for this fight” even as he pointed out that Jaca was never the same after he lost to Marquez by a 9th round knockout in a bloody battle for the WBO Interim featherweight title in Hidalgo, Texas on November 25, 2006.

Garcia conceded that Marquez was in trouble against Jaca because the Mexican “always had trouble with southpaw fighters and Jaca was beating Marquez, Nacho and I were concerned, but Marquez caught Jaca with a devastating blow and luckily won the fight.”

The 29 year old Jaca who has a record of 37-6-3 with 21 knockouts is coming off a 7th round TKO win in a war with Thailand’s Rachamongkol Sor mPleonchit last March 2 while Perera who is 30 years old won his last fight by a 5th round TKO dropping Francisco Javier Reza three times in round five for the big win last April 5.

On a rainy night in Guadalajara, Mexico last August, Perea dropped a majority decision to Jose “Piston” Lopez in a clash for the World Boxing Federation welterweight title.

Reports from Mexico said the 22 year old Lopez showed more determination from the start and after the first three rounds which appeared even, took over in the fourth and in the championship rounds it became clear that Perea needed a knockout to win. But Perez showed his ring savvy and skill and didn’t give Perea a chance to  catch him with a big shot.

Judge Erika Contreras 118-110 and Guillermo Sandoval 116-112 scored the fight for Perez while the third judge Carlos Ruiz had it even at 114-114.
