Will the real Hawaiian punch please come out

Brian Viloria was riding high after dismantling former champion Eric Ortiz in round 1 on their scheduled 12th round WBC light fly weight title. While winning a non-inspiring matchup against Jose Aguirre, Viloria was exposed by Omar Romero when Romero dominated him winning his title in a convincing fashion. Redemption came two years after winning against the Mexican strong man Ulises Solis by way of an 11th round knockout. This December Brian Viloria will have his ultimate revenge as he battle it out again for the third time against Omar Romero. This time Viloria ensures the people there won’t be any lack luster performance or a controversial drug test which Romero failed to pass on their rematch, the fight will end with a knockout. Cutting out the drug test controversy the crafty Omar had a pretty game plan against Viloria if there is one fighter from that division who can score an upset that would definitely be Romero he has faster hands and has superb footwork that can hit and frustrate Viloria in a lot of ways.
Romero own a win against Filipino Juanito Rubillar, he also dominated Edgar Sosa who won against Viloria for the vacant WBC title and when everybody thought he doesn’t have the power he scored a first round TKO win against Jorge Arce in 1996. His 28 wins and 3 losses with only 11 by knockout might not be that significant on paper but what is important is his one win against Viloria who was on top of that division at that time. Brian Viloria know what he have to do to win against Romero he have to follow the game plan with controlled aggression like the way he did against Solis.
Brian always has a tendency to fall short of expectations when he is fighting underrated fighters like what happened during his last fight against Iribe. Romero has also redemption in mind to clear everything out about the drug issue. The action pack encounter will happen this December 5 right in front of thousands of Filipinos in Cuneta Astrodome. No one should dare blink because this fight will end very fast… as Viloria predicted or otherwise this would turn out to be their first encounter when Romero opted not to engaged toe to toe against Viloria in other words this would turn out to be plainly boring. So will we see an inspired and a different Viloria or will we see the old Viloria? Will the real Hawaiian punch please come out…
