Tyson Marquez vs Brian Viloria: Contract not signed with Memorial Coliseum or Sports Arena

The November 17 fight between Tyson Marquez and Brian Viloria still has no venue actually signed as the fight date rapidly approaches. Will this fight even happen?

After a report yesterday that the November 17 fight between Tyson Marquez and Brian Viloria would be going to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, an official with the venue today contacted Bad Left Hook and let us know that no contract has been signed between the promoter and the Coliseum.

Promoters have contacted the venue officials, but haven't made a deal yet. Also, if a deal does get done, the fight won't be at the Coliseum, but rather at the smaller, more practical, more logical Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena.

Once again, the idea of whether or not this fight is even going to happen has to come into your mind, or at least it does mine. Marquez-Viloria is a great fight between the two best flyweights in the world today, both of them on good runs of success, both of them reliable action fighters for the most part, whose styles seem as though they would mesh into a great fight.

But this fight has changed dates and venues so many times at this point, with nothing set in stone yet (all of six weeks out of the supposed new date), that it just feels like a doomed fight that won't actually be happening. Obviously, I hope that's not the case, because it's exactly what we want out of boxing (the best vs the best in a promising action fight), but it's hard to ignore all the warning signs.
