Tyson Marquez vs Brian Viloria pushed to November 17

The world's two top flyweights are still planning to square off this year, but have again had their fight delayed, this time to make room for a pair of major cards already scheduled for November 10.

Top flyweights Tyson Marquez and Brian Viloria are now scheduled to meet on November 17 at the Commerce Casino in Commerce, Calif., just east of Los Angeles.

Marquez (34-2, 25 KO) and Viloria (31-3, 18 KO) have both been tearing through the 112-pound division of late, and have taken their rightful places as the two top-ranked fighters in the division, no matter which you have No. 1 and which you have No. 2.

It's the third date they've had scheduled for their fight, which was originally supposed to take place on September 29. They were then moved to November 10. The newest delay was necessary, as there are two major fight cards (Salido vs Garcia on HBO and Mares vs Moreno on Showtime) scheduled for November 10 already, taking place in Las Vegas (HBO) and Los Angeles (SHO).

There is also some concern that Marquez may be having trouble making weight. He controversially missed weight and then miraculously made it just moments later for a scheduled bout with Rodel Mayol earlier this year, prompting Mayol to immediately bail on the fight. Marquez instead fought Richie Mepranum, and followed that most recently with a catchweight win over Fernando Lumacad, where he struggled to a majority decision over 10 rounds.

If the fight does actually happen (it's worth being skeptical, honestly), both Marquez's WBA and Viloria's WBO titles will be on the line in the fight.
