Jean Piero Perez Aims To Put Away Juan Carlos Reveco
By Jhonny Gonzalez
The interim champion of the flyweight (112 pounds) division, under the World Boxing Association (WBA), Jean Piero Perez (18-3-1, 13KOs), is focused on putting away former champion Juan Carlos Reveco (26-1, 15KOs). Both sides agreed to fight on May 27 in Mendoza, Argentina. Perez has gone unbeaten in his last seven, with the last defeat coming in 2008 by way of a third round stoppage to Rafael Concepcion. He won the interim title in January after decioning Jesus Jiminez. Reveco made a lot of headlines when he refused to face his mandatory challenger Roman Gonzalez, at junior flyweight, after months of hype. Reveco instead made his move to the flyweight division.
