Brian definitely deserves all props, fighting tough competition as of late.

He seems to be getting better as he gets older now 31.
Got back since getting TKO'd by Tamara in 2010 and now he is a Unified Champion at Flyweight.

I started liking Brian Viloria when he was rebuilding his career after losses to Sosa and Omar Nino Romero. Viloria first came out as an undefeated prospect. When he became world champ, everyone was on his nuts like he was the next Pacquiao. He enjoyed the attention and styled himself as a smooth counterpuncher with dynamite punches. His fighting style became too lazy. he only waited to counter and relied chiefly on his power to equalize the fight while his opponents outworked him all night.

The hype around him died with a string of losses to Romero and Sosa and his fanbase practically abandoned him. The superstar-in-the-making tag stripped off and no one wanted to promote him anymore. Even in the Philippines were major networks used to outbid each other to televise his fights, it came to a point when they barely mention his name in news for his comeback fights.

Then he reinvented himself. He fought in tents and undercards like most unknown journeymen. This man learned how to become a no-nonsense boxer at such a young age. When his second chance came against Solis, he did not fail. And when he lost to Tamara, he bounced back like it was nothing, just another day at the office. Viloria's history and his ability to pick himself up from defeat makes him one of my favorite fighters right now

I dont' believe that's overboard in the least. He's only looked better and better since beating p4p ranked Segura in 2011, beat the - now - second best fighter in his weight class last time out. He already arguably has the best streak in boxing currently and that will be a definite should he beat Roman Gonzalez next time out. I have him at #9, and feel quite comfortable with that.

good post! the tamara fight is a case where he punched himself out and he really needs to move-up in weight having to strain himself from making 108.

Viloria is a great American champion, but nobody really gives a crap about those tiny divisions. Girls hit harder than them.

Great win & FOTY candidate.
T. Marquez now saying he had stomach & hand problems that night.
Source is the "Scene".

Hate the excuse card.
