Tyson Marquez wants rematch with Brian Viloria in 2013

Zanfer

Former flyweight titlist Tyson Marquez is hoping to get back into the mix soon, aiming to either rematch Brian Viloria or face Milan Melindo for a vacant title in 2013.

Tyson Marquez hopes to reclaim a flyweight title in 2012, specifically aiming for the WBO belt, by either scoring a rematch with Brian Viloria or facing Milan Melindo for the title if it goes vacant.

Miguel Rivera reports that Marquez (34-3, 25 KO) is hoping to return in March, with March 23 the floated date at the moment. After that, he'll look for either the rematch with Viloria or a fight with Melindo, should Viloria choose to move to super flyweight this year.

Viloria (32-3, 19 KO) beat Marquez down and stopped him in ten rounds on November 17, cementing himself as the world's No. 1 fighter at 112 pounds. And while the fight may not cry out for a rematch in terms of competitiveness, it was an entertaining bout anyway, and there aren't many better fights that can be made in the division, either.

The 24-year-old Marquez was the WBA Fighter of the Year for 2011, after upsetting Luis Concepcion for their flyweight title, followed by successful defenses against Edrin Dapudong and Concepcion in a rematch. In 2012, he went 2-1, notching non-title wins over Richie Mepranum and Fernando Lumacad before losing to Viloria.
