CARLOS TAMARA DEFEATED VILORIA
I had to wait until late in the evening for the replay to watch Viloria's fight because my baby might see the fight on TV and might imitate what she saw. So when she was sleeping i turn on the TV to watch the fight. I already know who won, but i had to see it with my own eyes what really happened. Brian Viloria lost his IBF world light flyweight title to Carlos Tamara. During the early round of the fight Viloria was leading, he was in control, showing patience and firing combination against Tamara's defense. Then came the 9th round, I dunno what happened to Viloria, was he thinking he was ahead of points and decided to just ran the time up until the last round? or was it he already ran out of stamina to continue, or was it the continued pressure from Tamara who was non stop and doesn't seem to run out of air. Then came the 12th round when Viloria look exhausted. He even trip on his own just by throwing a punch. When Viloria was not already fighting back referee Bruce McTavish halted the fight 1:45 in to the final round. It as painful to watch Viloria's loss but credit should also be given to Carlos Tamara who came in hostile territory, prepared and well conditioned.
When Viloria returned to his dressing room, he collapsed and was taken to the hospital. Although hes in stable condition for now, he will have to stay in the hospital for at least two days.
