REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – A pair of Filipino fighters took to the ring over the weekend and, while one was successful, the other was not.
The Hawaiian Punch Brian Viloria was victorious in La Vegas, beating Juan Herrera by a unanimous decision.
It was Viloria’s first fight since April of 2013 when he lost in Macau.
With this victory, Viloria will now fight again in May in Macau.
In the meantime, Viloria’s sparring partner was not so lucky.
Zamboanga fighter Marvin Mabait lost his WBO Intercontinental belt by a 5th round TKO.
Mabait lost to Mexican Alejandro Hernandez in their Mexico City fight on Friday.
