Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum is interested in staging a potential fight between WBO flyweight champion Brian Viloria (32-3, 19KOs) and unbeaten WBA junior flyweight king Roman Gonzalez (34-0, 28KOs). Viloria vs. Gonzalez is one of the biggest fights in the lower weight divisions.

Gonzalez is considering an immediate move in weight if a fight with Viloria can be made. The WBA recently made Gonzalez the "super champion" at the weight, but none of the champions or the top contenders at his weight are looking to fight him. Viloria has cleaned house at flyweight, with wins of Pingo Miranda, Giovani Segura, Omar Nino and most recently Tyson Marquez.

"I've had conversations with Viloria representative to make that fight, and I've also expressed my interest to Fernando Beltran (Zanfer), who has a contract with Chocolatito's handlers, so we can carry out this fight," Arum said. "It would be a great fight, but I would want to make it in Asia because it would be more attractive than doing it in Hawaii."

Tough fight for both if it happens. Even though I am seeing that people aren't giving Roman his just due as far as boxing goes. He has a pretty good defense when he wants to use it and throws hella combinations. I got Gonzalez winning a tough physical fight. I hope it happens.

GREAT fight. Arum could use a good match-up right about now. ****'s getting stale.
