“This is a great opportunity for me to get into the World rankings so I did not hesitate to accept when my promoter told me about coming to fight in Panama” said Perales, who faces De Gracia on the main event of the “Tormenta Perfecta” boxing card which is the final event of Promociones y Eventos del Istmo in year 2017.

“Perales is shorter than me and recently he has been not so active but I have to be very carefull because he is a little more experienced and has almost my same KO ratio,” said De Gracia.
