Brian Viloria Looking at August or September Return

by Ronnie Nathanielsz

Former WBO/WBA flyweight champion Brian Viloria is looking at returning to the ring in either August or September.

Viloria who lost his titles to Juan Francisco Estrada of Mexico in Macau last April 6 told BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard that “we are looking at an August-September fight but we haven’t had anything locked up” even as he said  his manager Gary Gittelsohn will discuss the possibilities with Top Rank promoter Bob Arum.

Viloria said he has been “going to the gym every other day and since last week I’ve been running and doing weights and stuff to keep myself in shape.”

The former two division world champion told us he expects to know something definite by the end of this month.

Meantime, Estrada who won the title from Viloria in an exciting split decision victory is preparing to make his first title defense against undefeated mandatory contender Milan Melindo (29-0, 12 KO’s) at the Cotai Arena of the plush Venetian Resort Hotel in Macau on July 27.

Melindo put on an impressive performance on the undercard of the Estrada-Viloria title fight to score a 4th round TKO over tough Indonesian Tommy Seran who had a solid record of 23-1 with 14 knockouts prompting Top Rank promoter Bob Arum to predict his title clash  with Estrada woukld be an action-packed battle.

Boxingscene.com quoted Estrada who said “I am ready to face any opponent. I will prepare harder than ever to retain my title. I want to prove I’m the best and for that I must contend with the best. Melindo is undefeated and he will attempt to become champion but I’ll do what I have to do in the ring.”
