Giovani Segura: After Viloria, I Want Tyson Marquez

By Ryan Burton
 
Former RING/WBA/WBO light flyweight champion Giovani Segura plans on becoming a two division champion on December 11th when he travels to the Philippines to face WBO flyweight champion Brian Viloria. Segura is no stranger to fighting in hostile environments as he gave Ivan Calderon his first loss when he knocked out the former two division champion last year in his native Puerto Rico.  

The fighter of Mexican descent told Boxingscene.com that he has been training hard at the Azteca Boxing Club in Southern California and can't wait to get in the ring versus Viloria.
 
"Training is going very well.  I am working hard and I can't wait to go meet the people of the Philippines.  I can't wait to get in the ring and fight," stated Segura.
 
Since suffering his only loss in 2008, the hard hitting Segura has knocked out his past 9 opponents. The fighter known as "El Guerrero Azteca" said that he doesn't plan on seeing this fight go the distance either.  He finished our conversation by saying that after the Viloria fight he will look to unify titles with WBA champion Hernan "Tyson" Marquez (32-2).
 
"This will be an explosive fight and I will be looking for the knockout.  Afterwards I want to face (WBA champion Hernan) ‘Tyson’ Marquez and unify titles again."

the same w/ viloria v miranda, nobody gave viloria a chance of winning. Viloria is the best technical boxer in the lighterweights. If you can't knock him out, you can't win! So I give this fight 50/50 FOTY candidate... if…

Viloria tends to lose steam. He should ask Marquez for some of the latter's pee drinks. He would need it vs tireless Segura. :)
