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.
