Segura's Trainer Expects Viloria To Fall in Five or Six

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

The trainer of former world light flyweight champion Giovanni Segura, who is moving up in weight to fight WBO flyweight champion Brian Viloria at the Ynares Sports Arena on Sunday, says “his condition is perfect. He has very good technique for the fight, good strategy and a good plan.”

In an interview with BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard during Segura’s workout at the Planet Jupiter Gym in Makati, Capetillo said Segura “is in condition to go twelve rounds non-stop and is in good shape but with the power that he has five or six rounds should be enough” to knock out Viloria and win his second world title.

A member of Team Segura, Ricardo “Arturo” Mota said Segura had trained for two-and-a-half months and comes to the fight in “very, very good condition. We have no excuse. We know Viloria is a good boxer too and I think this is going to be a good fight.” Mota said he had the greatest respect for Viloria.

Mota said “I feel like I was in Mexico. The people, the traffic. The people are so nice. The Filipinos are very good people.”

The 29 year old Segura who has a record of 28-1-1 with 24 knockouts is coming off a 1st round TKO of Eddy Zuniga last June 18. He was the first fighter to knock out the undefeated WBO light flyweight champion Ivan Calderon of Puerto Rico when Segura scored an 8th round knockout on August 28, 2010 and in a rematch knocked Calderon out in the 3rd round on April 2 this year.

Among the Filipino fighters Segura beat were former world title challenger Juanito Rubillar over whm he scored a 6th round TKO on July 25, 2009 and Sonny Boy Jaro whom he knocked out in the 1st round of a WBA title fight on November 21, 2009.

Viloria won the WBO crown with a unanimous twelve round decision over Julio Cesar “Pingo” Miranda at the Blaisdell Arena in Honolulu on July 16 this year after moving up in weight. Viloria now faces Segura in a mandatory title defense.

This is going to be a good one while it lasts I got Segura winning this fight by KO than to bigger fights like him vs Ramon Gonzalez.

[QUOTE=komandante;11524051]Viloria is the champion and [B]fighting in his home turf. [/B]Has a good knockout punch as well, if it goes the distance I think Viloria will get the decision. Remember Viloria is not Calderon whose been disadvantage with his height…
