Viloria is Not Pleased With Tyson Marquez Postponement

by Ronnie Nathanielsz

WBO flyweight champion Brian Viloria says the postponement of his planned unification title fight with WBA champion Hernan “Tyson” Marquez from September 29 to November 10 is hard on him.

The postponement was announced by Paolo Diaz, Events & Operations Manager of Solar TV’s sports networks.

Viloria told the Manila Standard  “its kind of  hard for me to keep going at it for four or five months but the break could perhaps help me relax a little bit and not overtrain.”

Viloria who trains at the Wild Card Gym appeared disappointed over the postponement because “training was excellent, was great. I didn’t take that much time off because I ran everyday and did so this morning. My trainer told me do not do anything but why stop and get myself out of shape. I kept myself busy and sneak into the gym.”

Among his strength and conditioning coaches is Marvin Somodio who was recruited from the training camnp of Manny Pacquiao in Baguio City.

The two division world champion said that taking a break “gets monotonous and you get really drained. Its like going to work every day and then getting out of it.”

However, Viloria said “I still feel refreshed and really want to get back to training camp.”

The postponement sits in well with the fact that Freddie Roach has been training Julio Cesar Chavez for his showdown on Saturday against Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez and although Roach “merely put in his two cents worth once in a while” it would help. 

Viloria has been sparring with an opponent who “is a bigger guy and a left hander and I’m getting solid work in there.”

He said WBA champion “Tyson” Marquez is tough but that he is “confident about this fight. I feel good, feel great. This is a fight I’ve been wanting to happen for a while now and now that its taking shape I’m kind of happy for it.”

Viloria added “I think I have what it takes to beat Marquez.”

This is one of those good fights that's flying way under the radar. Viloria by KO. He's become a Mexicutioner in his own right.

[QUOTE=Light_Speed;12502811]Marquez can postpone but he can't hide! Viloria wins another upset.[/QUOTE]It wouldn't be an upset. When Viloria is on, he is on a different level.
