WELCOME to Kimo’s Vegas ... the Player’s Edge!

ANTONIO MARGARITO will defend his welterweight championship title against Manuel Gomez Feb. 18 at the Aladdin. For us local folks, however, the headline match will be Waipahu’s Brian “The Hawaiian Punch” Viloria vs. Ivan Calderon of Puerto Rico. There’s a lot at stake because both fighters are undefeated - Viloria 18-0 (with 12 knockouts) and Calderon 24-0 (with five KOs) - and this is Brian’s first fight since knocking out Eric Ortiz to win the championship.

And if you need some serious doggie omiyage, check out the $620 doggie carrying case, or the matching doggie and owner scarves, or a suede doggie jacket. I know you think I’m crazy, but last year Americans spent $35.9 billion on our pets.
