The champ’s coming home

April 30th, 2009

Just got off the phone with Brian Viloria, recently crowned IBF flyweight world champion from Waipahu.

He’s in Vegas for Saturday’s junior welterweight fight between his good friend, Manny Pacquiao and Ricky Hatton.

Viloria said he’ll arrive  in Hawaii on May 13 and be home for about a week. There’ll be a press conference, and a parade through Waipahu in his honor is planned for Saturday, May 16.

He told the Star-Bulletin recently that he would like to defend his title in Hawaii and wants to meet with promoter Tom Moffatt. Viloria has not fought in Hawaii since 2003.

    I tried looking at your website on my iphone and the page layout does not seem to be correct. Might want to check it out on WAP as well as it seems most cellular phone layouts are not working with your website.
