Viloria Wants To Become Undisputed

From unified to undisputed.

That's what Brian Viloria wants after becoming the first fighter in almost 50 years to unify flyweight titles with his latest win in Los Angeles nearly two weeks ago.

"If there's a possibility to win all four titles to become undisputed, I'd go for it," Viloria said during the PSA Forum yesterday.

Viloria annexed the World Boxing Association crown to his World Boxing Organization title more than two weeks ago after stopping Hernan "Tyson" Marquez of Mexico.

Viloria is so obsessed at his next objective that he is looking at the possibility of taking on World Boxing Council titleholder Toshiyuki Igarashi of Japan and International Boxing Federation ruler Moruti Mthalane of South Africa.

"I don't know but the last to do that (become undisputed) was Mike Tyson," said Viloria. Bernard Hopkins, however, had done the same thing at light-heavyweight much recently.

Still, adding the WBC and IBF titles would be a grand achievement for somebody who weighs just a little over 100 pounds.

But, in the meantime, Viloria opts to just sit back and relax and savor his victory over Marquez, which according to him, is the sweetest of them all.

A return to the ring in February or March is just fine with Viloria, stressing that it'll give him enough time to prepare for his 2013 debut against an opponent that makes the most sense financially.

Reminded that the WBO will push for Filipino mandatory challenger Milan Melindo as his next challenger, Viloria, who turned 32 recently, didn't sound too excited because he doesn't relish facing a Filipino.

Asked about the possibility of him relinquishing the WBO title to give way for the staging of a fight for the vacant crown featuring Melindo, the Hawaii-born Viloria likewise appeared bothered.

"There are things that I could do but we'll see. We fight for these championships matches and you just don't give it up so that others can fight for it. We put our life to win these. It's unfair to just give it up."
