Brian Viloria vs Jesus Iribe Island Assault / Result

Brian Viloria vs Jesus Iribe:Island Assault....Viloria, the reigning International Boxing Federation light flyweight champion, will defend his crown against Jesus Iribe of Mexico in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA on August the 29. The fight was originally scheduled in the Philippines.

Brian Viloria (25 - 2, 15 KOs) has improved a lot under trainer Roberto Garcia. He brought the old and aggressive Viloria back and it showed against Ulises Solis last April. Although there were times Viloria lapse into complacency Garcia was there to motivate him. Here's the account:

Viloria's corner reminded him not to throw away his fight. Taking the advice to heart, Viloria relentlessly attacked Solis at the start of the eleventh much to the delight of the crowd. Then, a well-placed right from Viloria decked Solis winning the title in the process.

Yes, Viloria is one talented boxer. He was once the World Amateur boxing champion in 1999. Viloria's weakness is the tendency to be complacent - it happened against Solis when his work rate suddenly dropped and the latter took advantage. Fortunately for Viloria, he recovered and KO'd Solis. The Hawaiian Punch should not do that again. He must finish his opponent off quickly. Iribe is the World Boxing Council FECOMBOX champion with 15 -5 - 5 9 KOs record. The Mexican has two straight knockout victories coming into the fight, though the quality of his opponents isn't as high as that of Viloria's. Both have a common opponent in Edgar Sosa and both lost to him. But this isn't the old Viloria that lost to Sosa. The Filipino racked up six straight wins since then and has set his sight on a possible rematch.

Viloria's boxing skills is superb. He has power and speed, but what keeps him from unleashing his full potential is his mental state, his tendency to stop punching out of the blue in a winnable boxing match. He seems to be afraid of giving it all. Once, Viloria punched a guy into coma. The experience must have scarred him. He is a boxer not a killer. His victim was Ruben Contreras -- he is better now. Obviously, this incident still has an effect on Viloria. If it still bothers him a lot, he should consult a trained professional about it.
