VILORIA BACK IN TRAINING AT WILD CARD GYM


PhilBoxing.com




Although there is nothing finalized about a possible title defense in a breakthrough fight card in Macau by Top Rank promoter Bob Arum on April 6, WBO/WBA flyweight champion Brian Viloria who Arum said would be on the card has been back in the Wild Card Gym of Freddie Roach in Los Angeles for the past one-and-a-half weeks.

Arum told the Manila Standard that Viloria would face Juan Francisco Estrada who gave undefeated minimum weight champion Roman “Chocalatito” Gonzalez a hard fight on the same card where Viloria scored an exciting 10th round TKO victory over hard-hitting Mexican Hernan “Tyson” Marquez at the LA Sports Arena last November 17.

Viloria who is training with young Filipino Marvin Somodio who was hired by Roach said Estrada “is a tough guy but I’ve faced a lot of tough guys already in my career. It’s the same thing. I need to enter the ring in shape and with a game plan. It all comes down to what I need to do.”

The main attraction in Macau considering the heavy influx of Chinese patrons of Asia’s gaming capital will be two-time Olympic gold medal winner and three-time World Amateur Champion, flyweight Zou Shiming, who will make his pro debut in a four round bout.

Arum who signed up Zou described the 31 year old fighter as “an incredible tnalent who is beloved in the People’s Republic of China” adding that Top Rank “will nake every effort to make certain that he has a spectacular career as a professional boxer.”

Considered one of the most popular Olympic athletes in China, Zou is known for his extraordinary speed and superb footwork thanks to years of martial arts training with many of Zou’s opponents complaining that they cannot keep pace with him much less see his punches coming.

Zou has stated that his heroes are Muhammad Ali and Jackie Chan.
