WBC flyweight champion Roman Gonzalez knows a very good way to launch a verbal 1-2 against Brian Viloria ahead of their October 17 title fight in New York.

On one hand, the champion praised the former champion not only on Viloria’s boxing skill but also on his personality outside the ring.


Gonzalez also predicted he would knock Viloria out.


“I had already seen Viloria other times, but not close up like now. He looks like a good person, but I know he himself will come in great shape to fight a big fight … I think we can make the best fight of the night,” Gonzalez told WorldBoxingNews.net.

Gonzalez is set to defend his title against Viloria at the boxing Mecca at Madison Square Garden.

“I have a lot of confidence to win this fight by KO. My preparation has been good and I have to keep doing the right things to do my best when the bell rings.”
