SPORTS SHORTS 97: DONNIE NIETES' VICTORY OVER PABLO CARRILLO SIDELIGHTS


PhilBoxing.com




Donnie "Ahas" Nietes made a successful ring return when he grabbed a unanimous decision victory against Pablo Carrillo of Colombia at the Caesars Palace in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

* * *

Ferenc Budai of Budapest, Hungary scored it so close at 96-95. Zoltan Enyedi also of Budapest, Hungary saw it 98-92, while Giulio Piras of Manziana, Lazio, Italy had it 99-91, both are dominating slates for Nietes.

* * *

Per CompuBox, Nietes landed 97 of 425 total punches (23 %) and Carrillo connected on 81 of 415 total punches (19 %). Nietes threw 241 jabs landing 39, as against Carrillo's 195 connecting 21. Carrillo connected 60 of 221 power punches thrown for 27%, Nietes landed 58 of 184 for a higher 32% connection rate.

* * *

Scott Christ of Bad Left Hook described the fight: "The 38-year-old Nietes (43-1-5, 23 KOs) seemed to warm to the fight in the latter stages, looking sharp and sound still in the final four rounds, while Colombia’s Carrillo (25-8-1, 16 KO) never found quite enough success, though he did have some, landing solid shots here and there."

* * *

Joaquin Henson of Philstar Sports and PhilBoxing wrote: "Nietes, 38, dictated the tempo from the onset and kept the action in the middle of the ring where he established control at a distance. Carrillo, 32, never got into a rhythm even as he repeatedly tried to rush Nietes who proved elusive with his shifty footwork."

* * *

Carlo Pamintuan of TV5 ESPN reported the fight: "The 38-year-old Negros Occidental native used his superior ring smarts to move around the ring and stay out of trouble. Nietes engaged when he needed to but stay just outside the reach of Carrillo's powerful right hands."

* * *

The only blemish in the record of Nietes was dealt by Angky Angkota of Ambon, Indonesia fighting out of Jakarta via 10-round split decision on September 28, 2004. Angkota weighed in six pounds over the weight limit for this fight in the Indonesian capital in what was considered by many as a hometown decision.

* * *

His five draws were with Filipinos Greg Mangan, Carlo Besares, Nino Suelo, Aston Palicte and Mexican Moisés Fuentes.

* * *

Nietes now holds a new minor title as the WBO international super-flyweight champion. His other minor titles are as PBF light flyweight champion, WBO Asia Pacific minimumweight champion and as WBO intercontinental flyweight champion. He also held the special title as WBO light flyweight Super champion.

* * *

The major world titles he won are as WBO minimumweight champion, WBO light flyweight champion, IBF flyweight champion, WBO super flyweight champion and The Ring light flyweight champion.

* * *

The birthplace of Nietes is Murcia, a first class municipality in the province of Negros Occidental. It has a population of more than 80,000 people and is 17 kilometres east of Bacolod City.

* * *

Nietes hopes to face some of the best super flyweights, the likes of WBA/WBC super flyweight champion Juan Francisco Estrada, former champions Roman Gonzalez and Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, and WBO super flyweight titlist Kazuto Ioka before he calls it a career.

* * *

He would not challenge fellow Filipino IBF junior bantamweight champion Jerwin Ancajas because he doesn't want to fight another countryman after he engaged with Aston Palicte to a draw.

* * *

Nietes was formerly ranked as the world's third best active junior-bantamweight/super-flyweight by The Ring and Transnational Boxing Rankings Board, but because of two year inactivity he was stricken from the ratings.

* * *

Nietes was inactive for 27 months before fighting Carrillo. Before Sunday's match, he last fought Japan's Kazuto Ioka in Macao on New Year’s Eve of 2018.

* * *

He is presently ranked seventh by BoxRec behind Estrada, Gonzales, Ioka, Sor Rungvisai, Ancajas and Kosei Tanaka, the former WBO flyweight champion.

* * *

On June 14, 2018, Nietes was included in The Ring's pound for pound list for the first time in his career at the number nine position.

* * *

Nietes on January 1, 2015, was formally the longest reigning Filipino world champion with a record of seven years, three months and one day, surpassing the record previously held by Gabriel "Flash" Elorde which had stood for over 34 years.

* * *

When he defeated Ioka via split decision for the WBO super-flyweight championship, Nietes became the third Asian to win world titles in at least four weight classes after Manny Pacquiao and Nonito Donaire.

Japanese swimming sensation Rikako Ikee against all the odds secured an Olympics berth after surviving from leukaemia as she won the women’s 100-metre butterfly at the national championships on Sunday, just less than eight months after she returned to actual competition.
