Kambosos, Pacquiao’s sparring partner the past year, captured the unanimous decision win (80-72, 80-72, 80-72) after a dominant and methodical approach that left Perez little room to recover over the eight rounds of their fight.

Perez (24-11), who hails from Laguna, is on a struggle in his past 16 fights going 7-9.

Kambosos (16-0), meanwhile, has been on a tear with only his win over Perez the only fight to go to the judges’ decision.
