I am ready for the challenge.The 33-year-old Petrov (37-4-2, 17 KOs), a native of Russia who fights out of Spain, received a junior welterweight world title shot in 2011 but was knocked out in the fourth round by Marcos Maidana, who retired last week.But since dropping a unanimous 12-round decision in 2013 to Dejan Zlaticanin, who won a vacant lightweight world title on June 11, Petrov has won five fights in a row. Three of those wins came en route to Petrovs winning the 2014 ESPN Boxcino lightweight tournament.Michael Perez is an experienced fighter, Petrov said. He is one of my tougher challenges, but I feel that my experience in being in bigger fights has me prepared.This is for the mandatory challenger in the WBA lightweight world championship and I know this will be a good fight. At the end of the day, it will be about who is prepared the best and may the best man win.Said Artie Pelullo of Banner Promotions, Petrovs promoter: This is a big opportunity for Petr, which is well deserved. He knows, with a win, he will become the mandatory challenger and we know that he is a championship-level fighter and we expect a great performance on Sept. 30. Puma Womens Shoes Blue .
