NIETES RECEIVES RING MAGAZINE BELT


PhilBoxing.com




MANILA ? WBO junior flyweight champion Donnie ?Ahas? Nietes was presented the Ring magazine lineal world title belt by the publication?s correspondent Anson Wainwright during the final press conference for PINOY PRIDE 30: D-Day at the Solaire Resort and Casino.

The magazine known as the ?Bible of Boxing? recognized Nietes as the world champion in the 108 lb division when he stopped Moises Fuentes of Mexico in nine rounds in their rematch at the Mall of Asia Arena last May 10,2014.

He has since defended his title again by seventh round TKO against another Mexican, Carlos Velarde in Cebu City. Nietes(34W-1L-4D,20KO?s) is due for another Mexican opponent Gilberto Parra (19-2,17KO?s), this Saturday at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.

The 32 year old Nietes also broke the 7 year 3 month barrier set by the great Flash Elorde at the start of 2105. In this span where he reigned at minimumweight from 2007 to 2010 before moving up to win a title at junior flyweight, Nietes has beaten ten Mexican opponents.

But his latest challenger Parra is unfazed. Despite the fact that he was not the first reported opponent for Nietes ? it was another Mexican fighter, Luis Ceja ? Parra stated that he has trained adequately for this title fight.

Nietes was also not bothered by the change in opponents. During the presscon he said that he has seen the tapes of Parra and has prepared for his power right hand. Nietes is confident that his opponent will fall.

Set to appear on this card is multi-division champ Nonito ?The Filipino Flash? Donaire (33-3,21KO?s), who will be going for the NABF super bantamweight title against Brazilian William Prado (22-4-1,15KO?s).

Nietes said that it is a big honor to be fighting in a card with a superstar like Donaire.

Also set to appear at the Big Dome this Saturday are ?Prince? Albert Pagara, who will defend his IBF Inter-continental 122lb division title against Mexican Rodolfo Hernandez, Ryo Akaho of Japan and Prosper Ankrah of Ghana for the WBO International bantamweight title, AJ ?Bazooka? Banal will be pitted against Junior Bahawa of Indonesia (8 rounds), Joepher Montano of Bacolod City vs Tyson Maher of Australia (4 rounds), Jeson Umbal vs Eric Panza (8 rounds) and Ralph Lulu vs Gerry Patenio (4 rounds).
