Brian Viloria stopped Mexico's Hernan Marquez in the 10th round to add the WBA flyweight world title to his WBO belt Saturday at Sports Arena. Viloria (32-3, 19 KO) was dominant throughout sending Marquez to the canvas twice, before a left hook in the tenth floored Marquez again and drew the towel from the Mexican's corner with the referee stopping the bout at 1:01 of the round. Viloria got the better of the bout early, flooring Marquez with a thunderous right late in the first. In the fifth, Marquez (34-3 25 KO) scored some strong hits, but the former Olympian weathered the storm before again sending Marquez to the canvas. On the undercard, Nicaragua's Roman Gonzalez retained his WBA light flyweight title with a unanimous decision over Juan Francisco Estrada.

On paper, lists of quintuple and sextuple champions would seem to...

Every weekend lately, it's Fight of the Year candidates and Round of the Year candidates and Knockout of the Year candidates. That particular KO of the Year candidate was a bit on the sickening side, because it was touch and go at the time whether Juan Garcia would get back up from that big blow from lightweight prospect Angelo Santana. He did, and Santana is now one of the bright...
