Nietes to defend
Negrense boxing champion Donnie Nietes will have his first title defense for his World Boxing Organization light flyweight belt on June 2 at either the Resorts World or Araneta Coliseum in Manila.
Michael Aldeguer, president and CEO of the ALA Promotions, told members of the press in Cebu that they are still finalizing the fight card and Nietes’ opponent, who will come from the top 15 fighters of the WBO in the 108-lb division, reports from the wires said.
Nietes earned the respect of the world boxing stage after dethroning former lightflyweight champion Ramon Garcia of Mexico by unanimous decision before a homecrowd at the University of St. La Salle Coliseum, October last year.
