Darley Perez: I am prepared to go toe-to-toe with Gamboa


Colombian lightweight Darley Perez (28-0, 19 KOs) has been yearning for an opportunity to showcase his boxing skills on a world-class level. He’ll get his chance Saturday against Cuba’s Yuriorkis Gamboa (22-0, 16 KOs) in a clash for the interim WBA lightweight title from Montreal on HBO. “Everyone watching the fight should know that it is going to be a great fight and that I am prepared to go toe-to-toe with Gamboa,” Perez says. “The most important thing for me would be to win big against a fighter as skilled as him.”

Gamboa has been trained under the reknowned Cuban boxing system and Perez expects to meet a precision fighter with world-class experience to back it up. “I have been sparring against many Cuban fighters because of their style of fighting is very similar to Gamboa’s fight style. They are great for sparring purposes,” said Perez, who has fought numerous times in North America but never Canada. “I have learned a lot by sparring with them. I feel comfortable going into the ring to battle it out against Gamboa.”
