According to Chris Morris of Rocky Mountain Boxing , Victor Ortiz’ opponent on the Khan-Alexander card will be Manuel Perez. According to the report, while contracts have not been signed, Eric Gomez, matchmaker for Golden Boy Promotions has green lighted the bout.
Perez, 22-10-1, 4 KOs, is a natural lightweight and will be fighting at the welterweight limit.
Ortiz, 29-5-2, 22 KOs, has spent most of 2014 building his brand and has not seen ring action since he was stopped by Luis Collazo in January of this year. Ortiz has also joined the Joel Diaz stable who feels reviving Ortiz’ career will be an accomplishment.
It’s uncertain if the bout will be a part of the main Showtime telecast or Showtime Extreme with the fall out of Andrade-Charlo.
