Nickname: Pit Bull

After going 89-12 as an amateur, Daniel Perez of Albuquerque, New Mexico turned professional on Feb. 17, 1989 and scored a tko in round 1 over Javier Hurtado.  He ran off a string of impressive victories leading to an NABF Super middleweight title shot, losing by decision to Champion Warren Williams in Cancun, Mexico.  He then ran off a string of 4 big wins, including an impressive decision over undefeated Gerry Payne. 

   He got his World Title shot against Nigel Benn, and even though it was on very short notice, he took the challenge and faced the Champion in Wembley Stadium.  After rocking the champion early in the fight, Benn eventually stopped Perez in round 7. 

   Daniel fought once more, scoring a clear unanimous decision over Robert Britt.  This was Daniel's last professional bout.  Daniel Perez ended his pro career with a record of 19-4, 5 ko's.  If you would like to see him in action, I have the following bouts available on DVD:
