Perez, 28, has been named as McCloskey's opponent when he fights on the undercard of Belfast Carl Frampton's bout against Steve Molitor at the Odyssey Arena.
McCloskey took to Twitter to talk about the bout and added that he was "awaiting confirmation it will be for the WBA intercontinental title".
Also among the action on the undercard will be Commonwealth gold medallist Eamonn O'Kane against an as yet unnamed opponent.
It's thought more details about that fight will be made public on Thursday.
Frampton had been due to fight European champion Kiko Martinez, but he pulled out through injury with over a month to go - leaving the Belfast man to defend his own titles against Molitor.
The fights will be held at the Odyssey on 22 September.
