2005-04-30 Luis Alberto Perez w rsc 6 Luis Bolano, Madison Square Garden, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - IBF. Referee: Pete Santiago. Fighting for the first time in 16 months due to any number of problems, Perez (115) quickly got back into action against Bolano (113¼), banging in jab after jab and cracking in the occasional body punch before dropping his fellow southpaw challenger with a ram-rod jab in the second round. Following this, Bolano showed little inclination to make a fight of it, being put down by another jab in the fifth, and then cut under the right eye prior to being stopped at 2.46 of the sixth after a right hook to the body had sent him crashing.
