There is less than a week remaining for boxing to gift us one of the most anticipated fights in recent times, less than a week for a rare unification bout, less than a week to determine who is the best flyweight in the world and one of the best of the smaller weight classes and less than a week for “Champion vs. Champion”.
On Saturday at the Sports Arena in Los Angeles, California, on a fight card presented by Zanfer Promotions and broadcast live in the United States by Wealth TV and WealthTV.com, Hernan “Tyson” Marquez (34-2, 25KOs) and Brian “Hawaiian Punch” Viloria (31-3, 18KOs) will face each other for Tyson’s WBA and Viloria’s WBO flyweight titles.
Their respective training camps are over with Marquez’s taking place in Oxnard, California, with Robert Garcia who in the past trained Viloria, with the “Hawaiian Punch” working in Los Angeles with Freddie Roach who is considered one of the best strategists in the world. Marquez and Viloria have a date with history. “Tyson” knows that with a victory he will climb to a higher level in his career while if Viloria would to pull off the win, his name would be mentioned as one of the best fighter’s in the smaller weight classes. Whoever wins knows that their next opponent might be the man in the semi-main event, the undefeated junior flyweight WBA champion Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez (33-0, 28KOs) who will put up his title against Juan Francisco “Gallo” Estrada (22-1, 18KOs). With Gonzalez winning, there will be no question that he would deserve to face the winner between Viloria and Marquez and perhaps capture his third title in as many divisions after winning the straw weight and junior flyweight title which he now holds.
