Filipino-American Brian “The Hawaiian Punch” Viloria scored a 10-round unanimous decision win over Puerto Rican Juan Herrera in his ring return Saturday night at the Texas Station Casino in Las Vegas Nevada USA.
Viloria, 33, a former two-time division champion, lost his World Boxing Organization and World Boxing Association flyweight belt to Mexican Juan Francisco Estrada via split decision in March last year and decided to take a break.
Two judges both scored 98-92 for Viloria and the third had it 97-93.
Viloria improved to a 33-4 win-loss slate with 19 knockouts, while Herrera dropped to 9-8 with four knockouts.
He is expected to fight a still unnamed foe in Macau, China on May 31.
