Photos: Perez Arrives in Canada

    Orange, CA (June 5, 2013) – Colombia’s Darley Perez (28-0, 19 KOs) arrived in Canada yesterday for his upcoming showdown against Cuba’s Yuriorkis Gamboa (22-0, 16 KOs) that will take place this Saturday, June 8.  The battle for the interim WBA lightweight title will take place at the Belle Center in Montreal, Canada and will be televised on HBO Boxing After Dark at 10 p.m. ET/PT.  


    Upon arrival the Colombian boxer was delayed admittance for four hours by Canadian immigration due to Visa issues.  Thanks to the effort of Canadian promoter Yvon Michel and his co-promoters, Perez was ultimately granted access into Montreal.  The team was thankful to the Canadian authorities for their professionalism and for assisting Darley Perez and his trainer Orlando Pineda.


    The 29 year old native of San Pedro de Uraba, Perez, will showcase his boxing skills  against Gamboa who has been trained under the reknowned Cuban boxing system.

    “I am ready for my fight this Saturday.  Now that I have arrived in Canada, I can get acclimated to the weather and environment out here.  I am waiting patiently for fight night and feel confident about my upcoming fight against Gamboa.  I have trained well for this fight against different sparring partners from Cuba.  I know it’s going to be my night,”  said Perez. 

    Before departing for their flight to Canada trainer Orlando Pineda and Darley Perez posed for a photo.
