On a beautiful winter day in sunny Colorado, Manny Perez and coach Jake Ramos opened up their training camp to fellow fighters and fans who showed up in force. Fellow Colorado fighters Alfred Romero, Rob Frankel and JC Candelo showed up in support in addition to many ‘Manos’ fans.
First Perez warmed up with some shadow boxing. Next was focus mitt work under the watchful eye of his lead trainer Jacob Ramos.
Perez and top 10 MMA rising star, Justin Gaethje, sparred for the gathering crowd at the Grudge Training Center. Grudge is the home gym of Perez and is ran by world respected trainer, Trevor Wittman.
Perez finished up on the speed bag before spending time taking pictures and signing autographs for his fans.
Perez is winding down camp as prepares for undefeated prospect, Anton Nikolov. Their bout is scheduled for Dec. 14th in Puerto Rico.
