Nino’s gloves ready to talk

He is well known as “giant killer” for being the one that defeated Brian Viloria, lt. flyweight champion of that time. It was October 10th, 2006 when Omar Niño Romero arrived as a new “victim” for Viloria, but he not only took the belt, he also gave Viloria the first defeat in his career. Sadly, following the fight Romero tested positive for amphetamines and he was suspended for a year by the Nevada Athletic Commision. Though following tests came up negative, the damage was done. Now, three years later, “Nino”, still loyal to the sport at 32 years, is ready to achieve fame and fortune he has been denied. On Saturday night, he will be recognized as the giant-killer he is. Romero and manager Miguel Ángel Rangel say that Mayol will be defeated as Viloria was. This Saturday, they say, the gloves will talk.
