Brian Viloria and Artem Dalakian held their last press conference before entering the ring this Saturday for the vacant World Boxing Association (WBA) Flyweight title. Among great expectation, Los Angeles will host the fight between both boxers, who are eager to keep the body’s belt.
Both the Hawaiian and the Ukrainian have a good record and are aware that staying with the belt will put them in a great position in the division. After completing the public workout on Wednesday, both spoke with journalists and everyone present at the press conference.
Dalakian was the first to talk. The European showed respect for his rival and expressed his desire to succeed: “I think it will be a great fight against Viloria, as we both seek victory. I have strived to win this fight and take the title to my country”.
The more veteran Viloria spoke about his preparation and his feelings before the fight: “I thank God for being able to continue fighting at this level after 18 years of career, the best thing is that I feel 21 years old. I trained hard for this, I trained like I never did before to show that I am at my best”.
This Friday they will go to the scales to hit the 112 pounds of the category and on Saturday they will be fighting for the belt at The Forum in Inglewood, California.
