Viloria vs. Romero III Results Brian Viloria finally got the edge over Omar Nino Romero, defeating him via 9th round TKO to retain his WBO flyweight title. Romero's corner halted the action in the 9th stanza as Viloria pummeled him along the ropes. With the win, Viloria was able to erase their previous two encounters, in which Romero first defeated him via Unanimous Decision in 2006 at junior flyweight, and then a rematch between the two men ended in Majority Draw before being  ruled a no contest after Romero failed a drug test.

In earlier action, Rodel Mayol defeated
