Viloria: 'This is personal'

HOBOKEN, NJ (May 10, 2012) – The final press conference for Saturday night's “Island Assault 4: The Battle” pay-per-view-event, featuring Brian “Hawaiian Punch” Viloria vs. Omar Nino Romero III, live from Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City, Metro Manila, Philippines.

Three-time world champion Viloria (30-3, 16 KOs), a 2000 U.S. Olympian, defends his “WBO” title belt against two-time world title-holder Romero (31-4-2, 13 KOs) in the 12-round main event. Viloria won his first 20 pro fights, until he lost the World Boxing Council (“WBC”) light flyweight championship to Romero by way of a 12-round unanimous decision in 2006. Three months later, their rematch ended in a draw that was later changed to a “no contest” when Romero failed a post-fight drug test.

The 10-round co-feature matches a pair of former world champions, Julio Cesar “Pingo” Miranda (37-6-1, 29 KOs) and Rodel “Kid Rapido” Mayol (30-5-2, 22 KOs), in a 10-round bout with future world flyweight title fight implications. Miranda, rated No. 3 by the WBO and No. 4 by the World Boxing Association (“WBA”), is a Mexican knockout specialist who dropped his WBO title fight last year to Viloria. WBC No. 9 and IBF #12 Mayol, a Filipino now living in Los Angeles, lost his WBC Light Flyweight crown, ironically, to Romero in 2010.

Filling out the PPV card is the next wave of Filipino prospects:Robert “Battlin' Bert” Udtuhan (17-1-1, 13 KOs) faces Alvin Makiling (9-4-1, 2 KOs) in a 12-round match for the Interim WBO Asia-Pacific Bantamweight Championship; undefeated featherweight Jun “Chainsaw” Doliguez (11-0, & KOs) fights veteran Jonel “Mulawin” Alibio (16-13-2, 8 KOs) in a special 10-round Featherweight Attraction.
