Felix “La Ardilla” Pérez won the most important fight of his career when he topped the super flyweight contender Miguel “El Loco” Robles by unanimous decision in the main event of Boxeo Boricua WAPA 2 Deportes presented by Miguel Cotto Promotions and H2 Entertainment at the Coliseo Roger L. Mendoza in Caguas, Puerto Rico. “La Ardilla” established his game plan from the very first round landing some great shots on Robles who was looking out of it and not too sharp with his punches. In the third round a flashy right hand dropped Robles to the canvas but Robles got back on feet to continue the bout. Felix Perez had the most exciting moments during the fight and convinced the judges to his favor.
“I feel really happy with this victory I knew that I could beat him. Is a new chapter in my career” said La Ardilla Perez, who becomes the new super flyweight FECARBOX champion.
