Viloria gets 10th-round win over Marquez to unify flyweight titles

LOS ANGELES -- Brian Viloria stopped Hernan Marquez in the 10th round Saturday to add Marquez's World Boxing Association flyweight world title to his own World Boxing Organization (WBO) belt.

Filipino-American Viloria knocked down Marquez with a right late in the first round and continued to dominate the early rounds.

Mexico's Marquez came alive in the fifth, unleashing a battery of blows, but Viloria weathered the storm and sent Marquez to the canvas again.

“I knew it looked bad but I wasn't hurt,” Viloria said. “I knew he was going to get tired.”

When Viloria sent Marquez down a third time in the 10th with a left to the head, Marquez's corner threw in the towel and the referee stopped the bout at 1:01 of the round.

“I think my left hook was too fast for him,” said Viloria, who had won the WBO title with a victory over Julio Cesar Miranda in July 2011.

Viloria, coming off a technical knockout victory over Mexico's Omar Romero in the Philippines on May 13, stretched his winning streak to six fights since a defeat to Carlos Tamara in 2010.

He took his record to 32-3 with 19 wins inside the distance, while Marquez fell to 34-3 with 25 knockouts.
