Viloria stops Segura in eight

Brian Viloria produced a career-best performance to defeat former light-flyweight king Giovani Segura and retain his WBO flyweight title in Pasig City, Philippines last night.

The 31 year-old surprisingly dominated the Mexican over the eight rounds, causing a swelling on his face before taking him out in the eighth round to inflict Segura’s second career loss to the home crowds delight.

The two-weight world champion is now undefeated in four bouts and will move on to a possible unification in 2012 after causing one of the shocks of the year.

In Nayarit, Mexico, Liborio Solis and Johan Perez picked up the interim versions of the WBA super-flyweight and light-welterweight titles respectively with victories over Jose Salgado and Fernando Castaneda.
