Artem Dalakian captured the vacant WBA world flyweight title by defeating the bloodied Brian Viloria at The Forum in Inglewood, California Saturday night streamed live on the Internet at RingTV.com. All three judges gave the nod to the still undefeated Dalakian, 118-109.
Dalakian's unorthodox style accompanied by dirty tactics made the fight difficult for Brian Viloria who could not penetrate the Ukrainian inside as the taller Dalakian with longer reach potshoting Viloria from the outside and clinching and grappling in the inside.
Dalakian was warned several times by referee Lou Moret in the early rounds for locking and pushing Viloria's head down. In round 9, Moret finally deducted a point from Dalakian after several more infractions but the deduction did not affect in any way with the final scores.
In the 11th round, Viloria's forehead was cut from a Dalakian elbow which Brian's corner failed to close allowing blood to flow drenching Viloria's face as the fight went to a close in the 12th round.
Viloria, 35, who dropped to 38 wins and 6 losses and who had a roller-coaster up and down in his colorful career, will have to thing hard if he continues in boxers as he is not getting any younger.
