Mike Perez Injures Shoulder, Jennings Bout is Off

Corpus Christ, TX - The World Boxing Council Heavyweight Eliminator between BRYANT "By By" JENNINGS and MIKE "The Rebel" PEREZ scheduled for May 24th at the American Bank Arena and telecast on HBO has been cancelled due to Perez suffering a shoulder injury while training. 

At the present time the entire show in Corpus Christi TX, has been cancelled.

"I was floored when I got the call this morning from Perez's manager Patrick Thomas that he injured his shoulder in sparring," Tom Loeffler of K2 Promotions. "Mike is flying back to Ireland to see a shoulder specialist. I'm hoping to hear good news that the injury is not too serious and the fight can be rescheduled in the near future. I know Mike is devastated because of this setback but looks forward to continuing his dream of marching toward a WBC world title fight."

"When I received the news this afternoon that Perez got injured I felt so bad for Bryant because I know how hard he trained for this fight and how much he was looking forward to fighting for this WBC elimination bout," said Gary Shaw. "I'm hope for that Perez's is minor and we can get these guys back in the ring in a timely manner."

A delay is not too concerning at this stage,the winner would only have been sat idle waiting on Arreola to dispatch Wilder anyway.plus there is the likelihood of a possible unification which may have stalled the Perez winner more lay…
