Longest reigning Filipino world boxing champion Donnie “Ahas” Nietes of Murcia, Negros Occidental, punctuated his debut as a flyweight fighter yesterday with a total dominance of former light flyweight champion Edgar Sosa of Mexico in 12 rounds of action at the StubHub Center in California, USA.

All three judges scored the fight, 120-108, in favor of Nietes.

Just as impressive was “King” Arthur Villanueva of Bago City, who knocked out Juan Jimenez in a rematch also at the StubHub Center to validate his controversial win in May against the Mexican in Bacolod City. moremoremore
