WBO¬†flyweight champion Brian Viloria has made this Saturday’s (May 12)¬†fight with¬†Omar Nino Romero “personal” as he hopes to finally achieve a victory in their third fight.

Viloria¬†will be making the second¬†defense of¬†his title¬†against Romero, the first man to defeat him in a¬†2006, WBC title¬†match¬†with a¬†12 round unanimous decision. They would rematch three months later and battle to a draw. That fight would later be changed to a “No Contest” after Romero failed a post-fight drug test.

Viloria, who impressed many with the ease in which he dominated and deformed feared slugger Giovani Segura last December, is obsessed with bringing another action-packed bout to his fans in the Philippines.

“There’ll be no single boring round,” vowed Viloria at today’s final press conference in Hoboken, New Jersey. “I just have to put the combinations together. I can weigh in right now and make the weight. I’ve trained harder than before and it’s going to show Sunday.¬†Expect fireworks.”

“This is it.¬†This third fight is happening because it gives me an opportunity to bounce back from the first two fights.”

Named¬†“Island Assault 4: The Battle,” the pay-per-view undercard¬†features Julio Cesar Miranda versus Rodel¬†Mayol, Robert Udtuhan¬†versus Alvin Makiling¬†and Jun Doliguez¬†versus Jonel¬†Alibio.

The card will be distributed in the United States for $29.95 via In Demand, DirecTV, DISH Network and Avail-TVN. Online viewing will be available on Ustream at
