A boxing champion with the last name Perez... a TUNISIAN Jew???
Suggestion by Yosef from Israel.
Many (but not all, some are Mizrahim) Tunisian Jews are Sephardim and some have Perez as a last name. In fact, there are some theories (but not absolutely proven) that the Ashkenazic last name Peretz are the descendents of some small group of Perez-es who went to one those rare places in eastern Europe that a trickle of Sephardim settled in (i.e. Romania, southernmost parts of Poland) who perhaps "Germanized" their last name when they blended into the much larger Ashkenazic populations there.I realize you were making a good joke but just wanted to "shed a little light" on it.
