Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez (43-0, 37 KOs) is set to take on Brian Viloria (36-4, 22 KOs) on Oct. 17th at Madison Square Garden. And knowing that Viloria is the most dangerous opponent of his career, Gonzalez is putting in all the necessary work in training camp, expecting to get the KO come fight night.

"I had already seen Viloria other times, but not close up like now. He looks like a good person, but I know he himself will come in great shape to fight a big fight ... I think we can make the best fight of the night," boldly predicted Román, adding: "I have a lot of confidence to win this fight by KO. My preparation has been good and I have to keep doing the right things to do my best when the bell rings."

While this should be a fun fight, nearly everyone expects Gonzalez to win, as there doesn't seem to be another flyweight that can really hang with Gonzalez. Viloria, who doesn't lack for confidence, is hoping to upset the apple cart in this one. But does he really have a chance? You tell me, fans.
