Viloria Feels There Will Be Nothing Left if He Loses

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

WBO flyweight champion Brian Viloria (31-3-0, 18 KO’s)feels he must win his unification title fight against WBA champion  Hernan “Tyson” Marquez (34-2, 25 KO’s)  at the LA Sports Arena on Saturday while Marquez indicates he’s prepared to die to win.

Viloria was interviewed by a group of Manila boxing writers at the offices of Solar Sports in Mandaluyong City and told them  "there's nothing for me if I don't win this."

The title fight will be telecast on Sunday. November 18, on GMA 7.

Viloria who has returned to the Wild Card Gym of celebrated trainer Freddie Roach after a stint with Robert Garcia who now trains “Tyson” Marquez said he had trained hard for several months because of the postponements along the way but pushing back the dates didn’t hurt his preparation.

Viloria told the Manila Standard in a separate interview earlier that “I feel like I’m ready to go right now” following sparring sessions with southpaw Ray “Bad Boy” Chacon who fights much like Marquez and is a super bantamweight and super flyweight Bruno Escalante who has a record of 5-1-1 with 3 knockouts.

Chacon told us that “Viloria’s left hook could be dangerous for a southpaw like Marquez while he’s got a slick right hand.”

Viloria who is a tree-time, two division world champion is very pleased with how his preparation has been going and is within striking distance of the 112 pound limit.

Meantime, “Tyson” Marquez has told boxingscene.com that when he enters the ring on Saturday he will be “stronger, faster and tougher.”

The WBA champion added “I’m willing to die to secure victory which is going to be the most important of my career.”
