Viloria: Roman Gonzalez is The Best I've Ever Faced

The plan of "Hawaiian Punch" Brian Viloria (36-5, 22KOs) was to dethrone World Boxing Council flyweight champion, Nicaraguan Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez, but in spite of  his mobility,  boxing ability versatility and experience, he simply wasn't able to achieve it.

What Roman displayed on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden in New York was a peppery blend of elegance, speed, technique, power and other great skills, plus a legion of other attributes. 

To defeat such an amazing fighter, appreciably more than a great strategy or a sound plan is needed.  Roman is so exceptional, that 44 boxers have tried without success, to hit on a formula to defeat him.

Viloria feels Gonzalez certainly earned his number one pound-for-pound ranking, which was given to him by several major outlets.

“Roman is the number one. He's most certainly there for a reason.  He's an accurate fighter with a great defense. He's without doubt the best fighter I've ever faced,” Viloria ruefuly commented.

Viloria conceded that he'd been expecting an altogether different type of fight.

“I lost to a great champion. Congrats to Chocolatito. I tip my hat to you and it was my honor to fight you. God bless!,” Viloria gallantly and sportingly wrote on his social media page.
