Brian Viloria: Mission Accomplished, a Champion is Resurrected

John Louie RamosSenior Writer IApril 19, 2009

Opportunity knocks only once but temptation leans on the doorbell.

In front of his countrymen, Brian "The Hawaiian Punch" Viloria reclaimed what is rightfully his and re-established himself as one of the best little men of boxing.

Viloria displayed a masterful performance in going toe to toe against IBF light flyweight king Ulises Solis and crowned himself as the new champion of the division.

Viloria dazzled the crowd with his brilliant ressilency trading punches against the much  more favored Solis.

He consistently stunned and hurt Solis throughout the whole fight that ends dramatically in the 11th round with a big right hook that shattered the Mexican champion Solis.

Viloria improved to 25-2-0 15Ko's while Solis dropped to 28-2-1 20Ko's.

Solis labeled as a "Filipino Assassin"  had defeated Filipino contenders such as Rodel Mayol, Glen Donaire and Bert Batawang but on this faithful day the Filipino Assasin's streak against Pinoy sluggers finally come to an end.

The emotions, the mayhem and the goosebumps.

On this day history was made as two great champions give their all. In the end the Filipino enjoyed an impressive comeback, a memorable homecoming.
