Appearing on the under-card of the Haskins v Burnett IBF world bantamweight title fight was a familiar name.

Mike Perez, a former world heavyweight title contender, was having his first fight at cruiserweight.

Perez, 31-years-of-age, was facing Viktor Biscak in a six-round fight.

Perez proved far too good for Biscak demolishing the 32-year-old in the first round, serving notice that he could be a force at the lighter weight, ending the bout with a right-left combination to the head.

In stopping Biscak, Perez saw his record move to 22-2-1 with 14 wins coming by way of knockout, whereas Biscak, who wasn?t in the same class as Perez, saw his record drop to 10-1 with 7 wins by knockout.

Following the fight, Eddie Hearn, who promoted the show, hinted that Perez could soon be fighting for a version of the cruiserweight world title, against which holder though remains to be seen.

However, the action was so brief last night that it?s impossible to say how Perez might fare against somebody who is several leagues above the mismatched Biscak.
