Linked in from wrong list of "Perez"[edit]

His name can be found under the Spanish surname category "Perez" (accent on the first 'e'). This is, of course, a mistake and should be fixed by someone who knows how. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.57.186.90 (talk) 12:58, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

SOOO many broken external links[edit]

Hi, I'm not much into editing Wikipedia entries, but somebody really should fix the links on this page. Most of the external links appear to be broken. Here's a link to Young Perez's BoxRec webpage (I have read that some boxing organizations use it as an official database); http://boxrec.com/list_bouts.php?human_id=009927&cat=boxer , and here's a link to his International Jewish Sports Hall of Fame webpage (I don't know how authoritative it is); http://www.jewishsports.net/BioPages/VictorPerez.htm The problem with these two sources is that they appear to conflict. It looks to me as if the boxrec record has him contesting the title with Kid Oliva in 1930 but losing the fight by TKO, while other sources that I would not normally consider authoritative all point to him having won the title. Someone might want to look into the matter.Ful Mudammas (talk) 05:57, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Oh, despite boxrec showing he lost the French Flyweight title bout with Kid Oliva, they do show him contesting that title again against Valentin Angelmann on 06-11-1931 and winning it. So it looks like he did win it, but there are some misperceptions as to when. Ful Mudammas (talk) 06:11, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
