Jose Felix, Anton Novikov, Brian Viloria on 12/6, UniMas

By Francisco Salazar

It has been reported that flyweight Brian Viloria is scheduled to fight on December 6 at the Auditorium in Glendale, Calif.

Two more world title contenders have been added to that Top Rank card.

Light welterweight contender Anton Novikov and lightweight contender Jose Felix Jr. will fight in separate bouts, Top Rank matchmaker Brad Goodman told on Wednesday evening.

Goodman also told that unbeaten junior lightweight Saul Rodriguez will appear on the card.

The Russian-born Novikov (29-1, 10 KOs) is coming off a 12 round unanimous decision loss to Jessie Vargas on August 2 in Las Vegas, Nev.

Novikov trains out of the Wild Card Gym in nearby Hollywood.

Felix (27-1-1, 22 KOs) stopped Alejandro Rodriguez in the sixth round of his last fight on August 9. Prior to that bout, Felix lost a close 12 round unanimous decision to interim WBA titlist Bryan Vasquez.

Rodriguez (14-0-1, 11 KOs), who trains at the Robert Garcia Boxing Academy in Oxnard, has won his last six bouts in a row by knockout.

Opponents for all fighters will be announced at a later date.

UniMas will televise the card.

Viloria is one of boxing's under-appreciated boxers. Such a shame dude doesn't get the credit he deserves.

Viloria should make a final run and call it a day. He has been around forever.

Have Jose Felix Jr. Finish the year off with a descent opponent. If Magdaleno goes up to the 135's then setup an eliminatory bout Jose Felix Jr. Vs Diego Magdaleno.

I hope Felix Jr gets a good opponent, he's got a future in the sport at only 22. :boxing:
