Johan Perez-Paul Spadafora Set For November 30

By Ricardo Archibold Mendez, notifight.com

The team behind Venezuelan contender Johan 'El Terrible' Perez indicate that a deal has been reached to face undefeated Paul 'The Pittsburgh Kid' Spadafora on November 30th at the Mountaineer Casino in West Virginia. Perez (17-1-1, 12 KO) vs. Spadafora (48-0-1, 19 KO) will have the WBA's interim super lightweight (140 pounds) at stake.

Perez, 30-years-old, bounced back from last year's seven round technical decision loss to Pablo Cesar Cano, with victories over former champion Steve Forbes and previously undefeated Yoshihiro Kamegai.

Spadafora, 38-years-old and a former IBF lightweight champion, has faced several inactivity spells due to promotional and legal issues. He returned last August after a near two year layoff and defeated veteran Humberto Toledo, and picked up two more wins since then - including a decision over Robert Frankel in April. Spadafora's last three fights have taken place at the Mountaneer Casino.

Anyone who thinks Perez will walk through Spadafora is sadly mistaken. That is not happening. Although Paul may be past his prime age wise at 38, he is still as slick a fighter as he ever was, if not slicker.…
