May 4th in Kinshasa, for the WBC's vacant Silver cruiserweight title. Pérez is ranked #10 by the WBC, and Makabu #4. The winner very likely finds themselves in a position to compete for the world title vacated by Oleksandr Usyk as of his impending move up to heavyweight. Southpaw versus southpaw. Two powerful, compact heavyweights with big power and just enough vulnerability to make this a real crapshoot.
