8 Count Productions Press Release:
8 Count Productions is returning to the Concordia Theater in Berwyn, Illinois on Friday, March 11, 2005 as part of its "Best in Chicago" boxing series. The main event will feature a ten-round welterweight cross-town showdown between Luciano "El Gallo Bravo" Perez, 12-1 (11KOs) and Germaine "Silky" Sanders, 23-3 (17KOs). Perez is coming off a fifth round knockout over veteran Grover Wiley earlier in February in St. Paul, Minnesota. Since losing a very close decision in an eight round brawl this past August to Juan Buendia at the Hawthorne Race Course, Perez has put his career back on track with three knockout wins. He was last seen in Chicago hammering Jerome Elder on December 10, 2004 with a first round stoppage at the Aragon Ballroom.
