Brian Viloria is Focused on Making Excitement in Macau

by Ronnie Nathanielsz

WBO/WBA world flyweight champion Brian Viloria wants to put on a great show when he defends his title against Mexico’s Juan Francisco Estrada at the Venetian Resort Hotel  in Macau on April 6.

Viloria told Standard after another hard workout at the Wild Card Gym of Freddie Roach where his training is handled by Roach’s assistant, Filipino Marvin Somodio, that “right now I want to give a great fight.”

Roach who serves an adviser occasionally gives Viloria some tips.

Viloria told us he “feels great and ready to go” adding “I can’t wait to get this fight  underway.”

However, while training is “going good and there’s really nothing different” Viloria conceded that Estrada “is a tough guy but we’ll see what happens.”

He predicted a “toe to toe battle” and that his fight plan is “to bring it to him (Estrada).”

The two-division world champion said he’s been sparring with two-time Olympic and three-time world gold medalist Zou Shiming who will make his  professional debut on the Macau card  and a bantamweight named Ricardo.

Viloria is coming off a spectacular 10th round TKO over hard-hitting Mexican Hernan "Tyson" Marquez from whom he won the WBA belt while EStrada is coming off a gallant losing effort against undefeated WBA light flyweight champion Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez of Nicaragua on the same fight card at the Los Angeles Sports Arena last November.
