Marquez vs Viloria in Play For Chavez-Martinez Card?

By Jorge Hernandez

If Julio Cesar Chávez Jr. vs. Sergio Martínez comes off as planned on September 15th at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, there is a very strong possibility that Hernán ‘Tyson‘ Márquez (33-2, 25KOs) and Brian Viloria (31-3, 18KOs) will collide in a flyweight unification on the show. BoxingScene.com was advised that discussions are ongoing.

The biggest obstacle, at the moment, is the World Boxing Association's recent order which directs Marquez to fight his mandatory Juan Carlos Reveco (28-1, 16KOs). Last week it was revealed that Marquez might face Filipino contender Fernando Lumacad in July, but nevertheless the problem with the WBA's mandatory order regarding Reveco has to resolved.

[QUOTE=devildg;12269889]IF? What could possibly stop the fight from happening? Sergio needs to not demand OSDT or some bull****[/QUOTE]I and i hope he does ask for it. I know its a deal breaker but it is needed

Wow, a good undercard from Top Rank? It's a miracle. If it wasn't for the competition from Golden Boy this never would have happened.

Damn, a great start to a promising card if they could secure this match. What's next, Bam Bam vs Alvarado? Anyways, I could see Viloria walking Tyson into power shots a la Giovanni Segura but I could also see Tyson…

I still think that Gonzalez-De Leon is more interesting. I expect Marquez to plow right thru Viloria, where as Gonzalez-Leon it's a toss up imo Damn, it's gonna be interesting tho when the final cards are revealed... :thinking: decisions, decisions...
