Viloria Returns On February 24

Four-time world champion in two divisions and #2 ranked Brian “The Hawaiian Punch” Viloria, (38-5, 22 KO’s) of Los Angeles, CA via Waipahu, Hawaii will challenge undefeated and #1 ranked Artem Dalakian, (15-0, 11 KO’s), of Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine for the vacant WBA Flyweight Title on Saturday, February 24 at the Forum in Los Angeles, CA.


“We’re very excited to add this 12-round WBA Flyweight World Title to the highly anticipated SUPERFLY 2 event on February 24 at the Forum,” said Promoter Loeffler. “Adding this outstanding matchup to an already great show really makes this a must-see event.”


“Brian is attempting to become a world champion for a fifth time and has long been one of Southern California’s most popular fighters while Dalakian is undefeated and hungry for his first world title. Anytime #1 faces #2 for a world title, fans truly see the best in the division vying for the belt.”


“I’ve worked very hard to earn this shot for a fifth world title and I’m not going to let it slip away,” said Viloria. “I won my first world title in Los Angeles and I couldn’t be more excited to be back home to fight for the WBA Flyweight World Championship in front of my friends, family and supportive fans.”


“I’ve been working in the gym for more than a month in the hope that this fight would materialize. I want to thank Mr. Honda and his staff at Teiken Promotions for delivering this opportunity, and also to Tom Loeffler of 360 Promotions for including this bout on the second successful ‘Superfly’ event.”


“I’m eager to prove once again that I’m the premier flyweight in the world and you can count on seeing the best Brian Viloria ever. I’ve always given the fans an honest account in the ring and they won’t be disappointed on February 24.”


Said Dalakian, “Brian Viloria is a good boxer and was a champion, but his time is up. I’m going to the United States to become a world champion and to prove to everyone that I’m the best.”
