Motivated and convinced of being able to score a huge victory, the headliners of the “Champion vs Champion” fight card which takes place this Saturday night in Los Angeles, Mexico’s Hernán ¨Tyson ¨Márquez (34-2-0, 25 KOs) and Hawaii’s Brian ¨Hawaiian Punch¨ Viloria (31-3-0, 18 KOs) took part of a media conference today and promised that they will bring everything from the first round on Saturday night in the world championship unification bout which can be seen exclusively in the United States on Wealth TV and WealthTV.com. The co-feature will see the WBA Light flyweight champion Roman “Chocolatito” González defend his title against Juan Francisco “Gallo” Estrada.
Based on the great preparation that the fighters had and motivated because of what this Saturday night’s fight result will mean, Márquez and Viloria coincided that the fight will indeed be an all-out war and each one declared that they would come out victorious.
“I had a great training camp which lasted three months in Oxnard with Robert Garcia and I’m coming in very fast and strong, no weight problems and Saturday night you will see the best ”Tyson” that has been witnessed, I recognize Viloria’s quality as a fighter, he is a great champion, it won’t be an easy fight, but I will win,” said the Mexican fighter.
Viloria stated that he knows every move and that “Tyson” brings and that he has the ideal style to defeat him, as Marquez marches straight forward, his moves are telegraphed and he can see them coming. “I’m going to show him, I will box with class, intelligence, win the fight one round at a time, I will have another victory over another Mexican and will do my Hawaiian dance as I always do every time I win.”
Marquez interrumpted stating that there would be no win or Hawaiian dance, because both titles were going back home with him to Mexico.
Viloria has wins over 17 Mexican which include ¨Archi¨ Solis, ¨Pingo¨ Miranda, Omar Niño and Giovanny Segura. Fernando Beltrán de Zanfer’s Fernando Beltran affirmed that he expects a true war inside the ring, an explosive, intense fight between two of the world’s best fighters in the lower weight divisions and that it has all the ingredients to be one of the best fights of the year.
“We will continue with our policy of presenting the fights which the fights want, such as is the case here with two main fights, with four great boxing warriors, there is no doubt that there will be a full house at the historic Los Angeles Sports Arena,” expressed Beltran.

Should Gonzalez win, he could be next in line to face the winner between Márquez and Viloria. Should Estrada win, he will be another Mexican playing in the “big leagues” of world boxing.
