Fight fans in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental will get a chance to see reigning WBO light flyweight world champion Donnie "Ahas' Nietes of the ALA Gym in a non-title bout against Danai Meendaeng of Thailand at the Lamberto Macias Sports and Cultural Center this Saturday November 17.
Nietes weighed in at 110 lbs while Meendaeng was a pound lighter during the official weigh-in held Thursday noon. Nietes will try to duplicate the spectacular second round TKO win scored by his stablemate ?Prince? Albert Pagara against another Thai, Tawanrung Eausampan in Maasin City, Southern Leyte last Thursday. Pagara had earlier vowed to avenge AJ Banal?s loss to Pungluang Sor Singyu.
This will also serve as a tune-up for Nietes (30W-1L-3D, 16 KO's) as he prepares for his mandatory defense early next year against WBO minimumweight champion Moises Fuentes of Mexico.
In his last fight, Nietes beat Mexican Felipe Salguero by unanimous decision last June at the Resorts World in Pasay City for the first defense of his 108 lb division title.
Jimrex "The Executioner" Jaca (35W-6L-3D, 20 KO's) will face Jaypee ignacio (8W-14L-2D, 2 KO's) of Quezon City in another ten rounder. Jaca weighed in at 140 lbs while Ignacio was a pound heavier.
Last August, Jaca showed he still has what it takes to fight on prime time when he beat Angel Martinez of Mexico by 8th round knockout at the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel. In his last fight, Ignacio lost on points to Philippine jr.welterweight champion Adones Cabalquinto last August in Mandaluyong City. There are four more bouts scheduled on the undercards
