Update: Promoter Yvon Michel just announced through Twitter that Darley Perez is in Canada.
In advance of Saturday night HBO showdown with Yuriokis Gamboa in Montreal, Colombian born Darley Perez is presently stuck trying to gain entrance into Canada. “He has a visa problem,” said promoter Gary Shaw. “Right now my good friend (and fellow promoter) Yvon Michel is trying to take care of the problem if he can.” As to whether the fighter will make it into town in time for Saturday’s fight, Shaw responded, “I don’t know, I’m not an immigration officer, I know a little about the problem, but right now we’re trying to get through the problem.”
