PHILADELPHIA >> Brian Viloria, a former Olympian from Waipahu, scored a first-round technical knockout over Sheldon Wile in a four-round flyweight bout last night at the Blue Horizon.

Viloria, a 112-pound right-hander, looked sharp and successfully landed three turnover left hooks to the body that scored all three first-round knockdowns.

He pinned Wile, of Halifax, Nova Scotia, against the ropes for most of the fight with solid right jabs that set up his left hooks.

Brian Viloria is led away to a neutral corner after knocking
down Sheldon Wile in their flyweight bout in Philadelphia.

The TKO came when Wile left himself open after missing a jab. Viloria, now 3-0 with two knockouts, followed up with two lefts, the second of which put his opponent down for the third time. The TKO came 1:55 into the bout.

Wile dropped to 2-2 as a flyweight.
