Viloria’s training ahead of schedule
TWO-DIVISION world champion Brian Viloria’s training is ahead of schedule as he prepares for the biggest fight of his life against undefeated pound-for-pound No.1, World Boxing Council flyweight champion Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez of Nicaragua at Madison Square Garden on Oct. 17.
Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach’s assistant, Filipino Marvin Somodio told The Standard/boxingmiror.com that Viloria “is doing great in training and Brian is ahead of schedule.”
Somodio revealed that Viloria is only four pounds over the flyweight limit and he is very motivated to get that green and gold World Boxing Council belt.
He said Viloria has been sparring with former world champion, Filipino Rodel Mayol and a tough Mexican kid.
Meantime, Gonzalez was also reported by the WBC to be looking in great shape as he continues his training grind in Costa Rica.
“He needs the very best build-up in preparations of his career,” the WBC reported, acknowledging that Viloria “is an accomplished as well as dangerous rival, who will try his utmost to dethrone him.”
