Johan Perez Eyes Vicente Mosquera WBA Title Clash
By Miguel Rivera
WBC international welterweight champion Johan Perez (17-1-1, 12KOs) is reportedly interested in facing Vicente Mosquera (33-2-1, 18KOs) for the vacant WBA "regular" junior welterweight title. Although Perez moved up in weight last month to win a ten round decision over Yoshihiro Kamegai, he is willing to move back to 140 for the right fight. This past weekend Mosquera was scheduled to face Joan Guzman for the vacant WBA belt, but Guzman was overweight by over eight pounds and the match fell apart. He instead faced late-sub Cosme Rivera and easily finished him off in three rounds.
