Viloria: Tyson Marquez Never Hurt Me in The Fifth

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

Unified WBO/WBA flyweight champion Brian Viloria says that contrary to the fears of some, including Manny Pacquiao’s strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza and Filipino trainer “Buboy” Fernandez , Hernan “Tyson” Marquez didn’t hurt him at all in round five of their title fight which Viloria won by a sensational 10th round TKO at  the Sports Arena in Los Angeles on Saturday.

In an overseas telephone conversation with BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard, Viloria said “he came on strong but I wasn’t hurt. I wasn’t down, I wasn’t dazed, I was coherent and knew where I was. He wasn’t hurting me with the barrages because a lot of it was just landing  on my arms and I noticed that after that whole barrage I could see him breathing really hard and I knew he was getting tired and slowed down.”

Viloria said “I caught him with a good right hand and I said to myself okay I could sit down on my punches right now and just try to land  really hard punches and when I caught him with that right hand down the middle and he fell, I said okay I’ve got him.”

The three-time, two division champion said “I just did a rope-a-dope on him and he tired out. He almost punched himself out kind of like the Alfredo Angulo-James Kirkland type of fight.”

BoxingScene showed exclusive video of Viloria and trainer Ruben Gomez going to the dressing room of Marquez to congratulate him on a great fight.

Viloria told us “after all is said and done we have to pay our respects. He is a great champion and you have to give him a lot of credit for coming out here and to do what he had to do. He had to go away from his family and train in the US with Robert Garcia. I know how hard it is to be away from your family for a long time. A lot of fighters don’t do it, they don’t go out of their ‘comfort zone’. I understood how serious he was for this fight and how well he wanted to prepare himself.”

Viloria said for Marquez “to go as far as looking for a coach who knew how my style was I understood how much he wanted it and that kind of motivated me a lot to train really hard and prepare myself also.”

The newly crowned unified champion plans to take a rest and leave the negotiations for a possible fight with Nicaragua’s light flyweight champion Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez of Nicaragua who won an action-packed round battle against Juan Francisco  Estrada on the undercard,  to his manager Gary Gittelsohn.

Viloria said he would discuss plans to visit the Philippines with Gittelsohn and Solar Sports CEO Peter Chanliong “when our schedule frees up.”

He was hurt, Tyson was just arm punching and going all out which was a total waste of energy. Brian has a good chin took some good shots that round but came back strong a good part because of Tyson.

I thought Vilora looked hurt in that 5th rd.

Nah, Villoria looked fine. His words are well spoken like the champion he is. Need more of that in boxing.
