Nietes Promises Great Show As He Bids To Become 4-Weight World Champion

Donnie Nietes was in humble mood at the final press conference ahead of the biggest fight of his life on Saturday night.

The Filipino boxer will challenge for a world title in his fourth weight class when he challenges for the WBO super-flyweight title in California on Saturday as part of Tom Loeffler’s ‘Super Fly 3’ event.

Nietes has been quietly confident all week but will face a much taller and younger opponent on Saturday, so he’ll have his work cut out.

Speaking at the final press conference Nietes said:

“This is a dream come through for me to be fighting for a fourth division world title. We will put up a great show with Aston. Thank you and God bless.”

On how he could the nickname ‘Ahas’ (Snake) he added:

“Before I am a janitor at the gym. I take care of the gym for my manager. Then after boxing, I bring the snake inside the ring during the fight. Thank you so much!”

Saturday’s fight will be live on HBO.
