PINOY PRIDE 28: Velarde to make his own history against Nietes

By Lito delos Reyes

MEXICAN challenger Carlos "Chapito" Velarde is confident that he can make his own history against undisputed World Boxing Organization light flyweight champion "Ahas" Nietes of the Philippines in their coming title-fight in the Pinoy Pride 28 this Saturday night at the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino in Cebu City.

"I am here to make my own history," said Velarde through an interpreter infront of the sportswriters from Cebu, Manila and Davao at yesterday's presscon.

The 24-year old Velarde, an IBF Latino minimumweight champion, is also not bothered on Nietes' impressive record 33 wins, 19 KOs, 1 loss and 4 draws.

Nietes has beaten all his Mexican rivals and the only Filipino fighter to successfully defend his title three times in Mexico.
Nietes, the first world champion produced by the ALA Promotions and boxing stable won against Erik Ramirez (2nd title-defense), Manuel Vargas (3rd defense) and Mario Ramirez (4th round).
Nietes, who has successfully defended his world title nine times from 2007 until 2014, is the second longest reigning Filipino world champion next to the legendary 7-year champion Gabriel "Flash" Elorde.

Nietes is currently the Ring junior flyweight champion after stopping Moises Fuentes in the 9th round of their rematch last May.

"Manny Pacquiao has beaten a lot of Mexicans but he also lost to a Mexican (Juan Manuel Marquez)," said Velarde (26 wins, 14 KOs, 3 loses, 1 draw).

But Velarde said that he is capable of knocking out Nietes after watching him fight in Mexico and in the video tapes.

Nietes, however, said that the Mexican's statement is no longer new to him.

"Daghan nako na dungog ana na sulti sa mga Meksikano. Buhaton na lang niya sa ibabaw sa ring (I've heard a lot of that already from the Mexicans. He should just do it on top of the ring)," said Nietes.

He said that he is not pressured because of trying to break Elorde's record.

"Wala ko naghunahuna sa kasaysan. Basta buhaton lang nako ang kadaugan (I'm not thinking of history. I will just go for the win)," Nietes said.

Promoter Michael Aldeguer said the Pinoy Pride 28: History in the Making is the biggest boxing card in the history of the ALA Promotions.

Four other top-caliber fighters from the ALA Gym are also seeing action.

Undefeated Albert "Prince" Pagara (21 wins, 15 KOs, 0 L, 0 D) will be defending his IBF Inter-continental jr. featherweight title against Raul Hirales (22 wins, 11 KOs, 3 loses, 1 draw) of Mexico (12 rds.-122 lbs.) while Current WBO Inter-continental flyweight champion Milan "El Metodico" Melindo (31 wins, 12 KOs, 1 loss) takes on Saul "Baby" Juarez (20 wins, 11 KOs, 3 loses) of Mexico in an IBF jr. flyweight eliminator (12 rds.-108 lbs).
Former WBO world minimumweight champion Merlito "Tiger" Sabillo (23 wins, 12 KOs, 1 loss, 1 draw) faces Faris Nenggco (8 wins, 2 KOs, 6 loses, 3 draws) of Indonesia (8 rds.-107 lbs.), AJ "Bazooka" Banal (31 wins, 22 KOs, 2 loses, 1 draw) takes on Maxsaisai Sithsaithong (15 wins, 4 KOs, 5 loses) of Thailand (8 rds.-124 lbs.).

Jomar "Wallopman" Fajardo (14 wins, 7 KOs, 5 loses, 1 draw) vs. Francisco "Chihuas" Rodriguez (16 wins, 11 KOs, 2 loses) of Mexico (10 rds.-110 lbs.), Mark "Manifico" Magsayo of Tagbilaran vs. Moon-Sun Jung of South Korea (6 rds.-126 lbs.), Polid Banal of Cebu vs. Ritchen Rosales of Bohol (4 rds.-115 lbs.), Virgel Vitor of Tagbilaran vs. Jovane Abejero of Bohol (4 rds.-118 lbs.), Gerard Suico of Mandaue vs. Fritz Cabilla of Bohol (4 rds.-112 lbs.).

The official weigh-in is slated on Friday (Nov. 14) at 11 a.m. at the Robinson's Fuente according to ALA Promotions vice-president Dennis Canete.
