HOBOKEN, NJ (April 1, 2012) - The "Island Assault 4: The Battle" pay-per-view-event, featuring a trilogy showdown between three-time world champion Brian "Hawaiian Punch" Viloria (30-3, 16 KOs) and former two-time world champion Omar Nino Romero (30-42, 12 KOs), has been rescheduled from its original March 31 date to Saturday night, May 12, live from Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City, Metro Manila, Philippines.

Viloria will defend his World Boxing Organization ("WBO") title belt against Romero in the 12-round main event. Viloria was a 2000 U.S. Olympian who won his first 20 pro fights, until he lost the World Boxing Council ("WBC") light flyweight championship to Romero by way of a 12-round unanimous decision in 2006. Three months later, their rematch ended in a draw and was later changed to a "no contest" when Romero failed the post-fight drug test.
The completion of the Viloria-Romero trilogy will have to wait a little longer as the Nevada State Athletic Commission prevented the WBO from sanctioning the fight due to unpaid penalties on Romero's part. From 2006, Romero has amassed a total of $11,500 in penalties which he needs to pay before the fight is sanctioned.
The fight will now be held May 12 and will still be staged at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.
