Despite Raymond Ford (8-0-1, 4 KOs) coming in as a highly touted prospect, Aaron Perez (10-0-1, 6 KOs) could care less. The heavy underdog dictated the pace early on and simply wouldn’t allow his man to get comfortable tonight.
After getting outworked his man, Ford attempted to change the flow of the fight by fighting on the inside. His new found game plan however, did nothing to change the momentum that was heavily in his opponents corner.
Unfortunately for Perez, what appeared to be the biggest win of his career was swiftly taken away from him as he was forced to settle for a split decision draw.
