Former WBO/WBA flyweight champion Brian Viloria is ready for a rematch with Mexico’s Juan Francisco Estrada in Macau on February 22 on a Top Rank fight card of promoter Bob Arum.

In an overseas telephone conversation with Standard, Viloria said he expects to find out from his manager Gary Gittelsohn what progress has been made with the Estrada camp on the planned rematch which was first indicated by Arum.

Viloria told the Standard he’s been “I've been keeping himself busy, working out on my own for a month, running every day.”

He said he will begin training at the Wild Card Gym of Freddie Roach on Monday and will continue to work with Roach’s assistant Marvin Somodio.

Viloria told us Somodio “is a great guy and I’m really happy about his training a  lot of top notch fighters.”

Viloria said he is “feeling good and well rested and ready to go again.”

He said  if the rematch pushes through he won’t make the same mistakes he made when he lost the title to the tough Estrada last April 6 in Macau.

Viloria was winning comfortably over the first five rounds before he decided to slug it out with Estrada and paid the price, losing by a split decision.

The two division world champion said “I will stay with my game-plan and not try to please too many people. There is no need to slug it out. I’ve got to fight smart.”

Viloria revealed that his wife Erika, the former Miss. Navarro who is a nurse in California, is four-and-a half months pregnant and they are very excited as they look forward to their first child.
Viloria who turned 33 last November  24 said “I’m not getting any younger. Its about time.”

The first fight was excellent. Estrada showed so many facets to his game that Viloria became overwhelmed. If I remember correctly, the fight changed when Estrada started working on the inside. I think Estrada takes it agains. He's constantly improving from fight to fight.

I think Estrada is only getting better,viloria is what he is,no improvement,but cant say the same with Estrada,he's faced some decent fighters and I think he's improved after each fight,,,facing Viloria then if he wins segura and maybe Gonzalez,how tough can it get for a fighter? if he does that ...

The fight that should be getting made is Estrada vs Segura, Giovanni earned his shot now he desserves to get it.
