WBO DIRECTS VILORIA TO FACE MELINDO IN MANDATORY TITLE DEFENSE

The World Boxing Organization has directed WBO/WBA flyweight champion Brian Viloria to face No.1 ranked Milan Melindo in a mandatory title defense.
ALA Promotions president Michael Aldeguer told the Manila Standard that it was decided at the recent convention that the winner of the Viloria-Hernan “Tyson” Marquez fight which Viloria won by a rousing 10th round TKO has to face No.1 contender Milan Melindo.
Aldeguer said they would have to “start the negotiations within 30 days and by next week we will most probably send a letter to the camp of Viloria and see what their plans are.”
He said they have “another 90 days to make the fight happen.”
Aldeguer said he doesn’t know what Viloria’s plans are but the fight has been mandated by the WBO.
Aldeguer said that while the clash with “Tyson” Marquez was a hard fight for Viloria “he fought a terrific fight and has developed a lot. He’s got the experience and also the speed and power.”
With talk about a big fight against light flyweight champion Roman “Chocalatito” Gonzalez, there is a feeling that Viloria may give up his WBO title instead of defending it against a fellow Filipino and instead retain his WBA title.
Aldeguer said that at Brian’s age (31) “I’m sure he wants the biggest fight out there.”
