After turning professional in 1982 he had compiled a record of 27-5-2 in 8 years before taking on Indonesian IBF super flyweight champion Ellyas Pical. He scored a unanimous decision victory over the titleholder and became the new IBF champion. It would prove to be a short reign as he would lose the title in his first defense against Robert Quiroga in a fight that took place in the U.K. Perez would have one more title shot against Wilfredo Vázquez but would be unsuccessful. He would win only 10 fights in the next 13 years as he retired in 2007 as 1 of 3 former world champions to retire with a record worse than .500 along with (Francisco Quiroz and Manny Melchor).
