Viloria Looking Forward To Estrada Title Defense in Macau

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

WBO/WBA flyweight champion Brian Viloria is looking forward to his title defense against Mexico’s Juan Francisco Estrada at the plush Venetian Hotel and Casino in Macau, regarded as the gambling capital of Asia.

Viloria told BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard that “training has been going great” at the Wild Card Gym under Freddie Roach’s assistant Marvin Somodio for the past three weeks but he hasn’t yet started sparring and plans to do that “in the next couple of weeks. We are just into conditioning right now.”

Viloria who added the WBA title with a spectacular 10th round TKO of hard-hitting Mexican Hernan “Tyson” Marquez in an action-packed fight at the Los Angeles Sports Arena last November 17 said “I am looking forward to this fight (against Estrada. He’s a tough fighter but with the right preparation we’ll be able to win this fight.”

The two division world champion said fighting in Macau in the first big promotion of Top Rank’s Bob Arum “should be fun and I’m looking forward to it.”

Viloria said with other Filipinos such as mandatory flyweight challenger Milan Melindo, southpaw featherweight Michael Farenas and undefeated bantamweight Dodie Boy Penalosa also scheduled to see action with China’s two-time Olympic gold medalist Zou Shi Ming making his pro debut “it should be a fun card and a lot of people are looking forward to it.”

Viloria who is 32 years old has a record of 32-3 with 19 knockouts while Estrada who is ten years younger has a record of 22-2 with 18 knockouts and is coming off a twelve round unanimous decision loss  to undefeated WBA light flyweight champion Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez of Nicaragua in a slambang battle on the Viloria-Marquez undercard.

Viloria should be on the P4P list and not Broner.
