“US boxing fans loved watching ‘Island Assault 3’ last December, showcasing Viloria versus (Giovani) Segura, on top of an action-packed card from the Philippines,” Integrated Sports Media president Doug Jacobs said. “These are two of the top smaller-weight class boxers in the world who have five world titles between them. This show, of course, continues the heated Filipino vs. Mexican boxing rivalry that is one of the most intense in the sport today. An equally exciting undercard will soon be announced.”

Three-time and reigning world champion Viloria (29-3, 16 KOs), a dual citizen of the U.S. and Philippines, was a 2000 U.S. Olympian. Rated No. 2 by The Ring magazine, Viloria captured the IBF title in his present belt last in July, winning a 12-round decision from Julio Cesar Miranda (35-5-1), and successfully defended it against Segura (28-1-1). Brian is a former International Boxing Federation (“IBF”) and World Boxing Council (“WBC”) light flyweight champion.

Viloria’s other notable victories have been against Omar Soto (DEC10), Ulises Solis (KO11), Eric Ortiz (KO1), Jose Antonio Aguirre (DEC12) and Angel Antonio Priolo (KO7).

Romero, fighting out of Guadalajara (MX), is a two-time WBC light flyweight champion who has defeated Viloria in one of two previous meetings. In August of 2006, he easily won a 12-round decision (118-110, 117-111, 117-112) in Las Vegas. Three months later, in a rematch also held in Las Vegas, Romero and Viloria fought to a draw that was changed to a “no decision” when Romero failed a post-fight drug test.

Romero has also defeated Jorge Arce (TKO1), Rodel Mayol (DEC12), Ronald Barrera (RTD7), and Sammy Gutierrez (DEC10).

The remainder of the “Island Assault 4: The Battle” PPV event will soon be announced.
