Nietes vs. Vasquez
in Bacolod April 9

Negrenses will get the chance to personally witness their hometown boxing hero Donnie Nietes conquer his latest Mexican foe when the reigning WBO minimumweight titlist faces Armando Vasquez at the University of St. La Salle Coliseum on April 9.

While it is not a title bout, Nietes said it has always been his dream to fight in front of his “kasimanwas” in Negros.

The fight against Vasquez is a “tune-up”, he said as he prepares to move up from minimumweight to light flyweight.
