Sosa Not Ruling Out Viloria To Shock Roman Gonzalez

By Miguel Rivera

Former world champion Edgar Sosa expects a very good fight when Brian Viloria (36-4, 22KOs) challenges Roman 'Chocolatito' González (43-0, 37KOs) for the WBC flyweight championship on October 17th as part of the Gennady Golovkin vs. David Lemieux undercard at New York's Madison Square Garden.

Sosa decisioned Viloria by a twelve round majority decision in 2007. Viloria was able to rebuild his career and captured two world titles.

Back in May, Sosa was crushed in two rounds by Gonzalez. The 36-year-old Sosa that Gonzalez faced had seen better days and was not the same fighter who was in his late twenties when he beat Viloria.

"I think it will be a great fight, Viloria will arrive in good condition and that will make it a very attractive bout. We already know that Roman always comes [in great condition] and right now he's in a great moment [in his career], so we'll enjoy a big fight and Viloria can cause a big upset," Sosa told ESPN Deportes.

"I must say that it's obvious that Roman is huge favorite to win the fight, but do not rule out to Viloria. He is a good fighter who has given some surprises [in the past]. He lost to 'Gallo' Estrada, but he's risen back up just as he did when he lost with me and he was crowned again [as champion], so I have no doubt that it is a big fight."
