Viloria Defends WBO Flyweight Belt

Brian Viloria defends WBO Flyweight belt against pound-for-pound No.9 Giovanni Segura.

The Filipino - Hawaiian Brian Viloria will have one of the toughest fights of his career today (11th December, 2011) as he defends his World Boxing Organization (WBO) Flyweight Title against The Ring Magazine's No.9 Giovanni Segura in "Island Assault 3" at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City.

Villoria is onhis first title defense of the WBO title he won against Julio Cesar Miranda by unanimous decision last July this year. The 29-year-old Segura , on the other hand, is looking at capturing his second division world title after dominating the Light Flyweight Division as the WBO and WBA champion.

Everyone should expect fireworks as both fighters are hard-hitters. Villoria having a record of 29-3 with 16 knockouts, while Segura with the record of 28-1-1 with 24 knockouts.

Viloria has won his last three fights since moving up in weight. Segura, in the meantime, hasn't been beaten in nine fights, all by knockouts.
