Brian “The Hawaiian Punch” Viloria returns to action on Saturday at the Cotai Arena in Macau, taking on the deceptively dangerous Jose Alfredo Zuniga in a 10-round contest in the flyweight division.
Viloria is likely embarking on the final leg of a solid professional career that has seen multiple title reigns in the junior flyweight and flyweight divisions. He last held a world championship in 2013, dropping the WBA and WBO 112-pound titles to Juan Francisco Estrada, and is looking for one more shot at gold.
Zuniga has a deceptive record, and he’s capable of being much more dangerous than would be apparent after a cursory look at his ledger. This isn’t the first time he’s played the role of spoiler, and he’s young enough to make some noise himself with a win.
This is a much more intriguing fight than it may seem like on paper.
