After hitting his opponent with clean punches Brian Viloria stop the surging Mexican Fred Valdez with a vicious body shot in a delayed reaction with the Mexican barely beating the count of 10 and Brian once again declared the winner by TKO last night.
Brian Viloria started with a bed of roses already arrange for his professional career. A be medaled amateur boxer who had a record of 230-8 and captured the National Golden Gloves light flyweight champion and a member of the 2000 US Olympic team Brian was soaring high and with all the hype and fame Brian won the WBC title by knocking out Eric Ortiz in the first round. But fate could sometimes be bitter and frustrating as Brian lost to Omar Niño Romero and after a controversial rematch which ended in a draw Romero got stripped of his title after testing positive to methamphetamine and the title was declared vacant. Brian fought Edgar Sosa for the vacant title but his lack of offense and sometimes contented of just becoming a counter puncher proved to be futile since the aggressor always gets the nod from the judges.
Brian since winning the title has change trainers 4 times a boxer who is showing some desperate moves and needed guidance on his downhill boxing career.
Brian wanted to give up but his gone too far to just back out.
He wanted a change and change had to start with himself. Gone are the parties, the ladies, the fame and fortune instead Brian went back to plain old boxing. He rented a simple room for him to rest after practice. He lowered down his pride and started from scratch. His first come back wasn’t even a main event fight in a make shift tent on the outskirts of Mexico. Slowly Brian regained his confidence and promised himself never to let fame get into him. His focus is on boxing and even if it takes him anywhere as long as it’s a fight Brian will take it. A more focused Brian is determined to comeback. A move to the super flyweight has so far been a good decision.
The Hawaiian punch still has a lot to prove himself and with title on his mind we might see Brian challenging for a title this year. Brian has been in that situation but if ever he wins a title this time he already knows what to do.
