Victory for Negros
Nietes undefeated, Villanueva KOs Jimenez
BY NIDA BUENAFE
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.
Senior Supt. William Señoron, Negros Occidental police provincial director, last night denied the allegation in a white paper from an anonymous source that he is being paid protection money by drug groups operating in the province.
He said there are some people lobbying for his transfer out of Negros Occidental all the way up to Camp Crame and since they have no basis to discredit him, they have resorted to black propaganda.
