Can Paul Spadafora Defend His Undefeated Title?

Ready for Paul Spadafora’s next fight? He is returning to the ring November 30th again at the Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort against Johan “El Terrible” Perez fighting out of Venezuela. The public is invited to the Press Conference happening at Latitude 40 on November 27th at 3pm.

Former IBF World Champion, Paul Spadafora (48W-0L-1D, 19KO), seems to have come out from the shadows battling his way back to the top in what could be the greatest comeback in sports history. Spadafora is notorious for his troubled past but has astonishingly roared back over the past year with three victories over top contenders including capturing the NABF Title. He now sits back at the top of the division earning him another crack at another World Championship. In addition to Spadafora’s comeback, he also has a chance to tie the late Rocky Marciano’s all-time record of 49 wins without a loss and continue his pursuit of a future bout against Floyd Mayweather.


Spadafora will be up against the current highest WBA World rated contender and WBA International champion and former WBA Interim World Champion, Johan Perez (17W-1L-1D, 12KO). Perez is coming off two consecutive televised victories on Showtime over Japan’s 22W-0L Yoshihiro Kamegai & former World Champion Steve Forbes. The power punching Venezuelan simply known as “El Terrible” is determined to have his hands raised in victory over Spadafora to claim gold & keep his name a top the world stage.
