Luis Mendoza sits in the second-floor office of the Central Meat Co. at a desk piled high with paperwork. Civic awards hang on two walls and a mural depicting scenes of traditional Latino ranch life hangs on another. The mural symbolizes the life Mendoza left behind when, at the age of 13 and accompanied only by an uncle, he left his home town of San Luis Potosi in central Mexico to find his fortune in the United States.

Perez was stepping up from the bantamweight ranks, where he had defended the World Boxing Council's bantamweight crown eight times before losing it to Greg Richardson at the Forum last February.
