The flyweight division has the potential to be one of boxing's best weight classes in 2014. Undefeated sensation Roman Gonzalez will be moving up to 112 pounds after dominant runs at straw and light flyweight. WBO and WBA "super" champion Juan Francisco Estrada (23) is one of the most promising young talents in the sport.
Knockout artist Giovani Segura got back on track in a big way last November when he knocked out Hernan Marquez in Round 12. Veterans Brian Viloria and Edgar Sosa still remain relevant, top-10 fighters.
With a 32-1 record and the WBA "regular" world title, Juan Carlos Reveco is in the mix at 112. His only career loss as a professional came in December 2007 to French Olympic gold medalist Brahim Asloum.
Manuel Vides is a relatively obscure young prospect. He has decent reach for the division and some pop. I have to think he is largely a tuneup fight for Reveco, before a unification fight with Estrada later in the year or perhaps a showdown with the Nicaraguan Gonzalez.
But flyweight tends to be a particularly upset-heavy division, so the last thing Reveco can afford to do is look past Vides. The Panamanian has been busy in getting on-the-job training as a professional and should be ready for this fight, which is the biggest opportunity of his career.
