Nietes eyes WBO light fly title

The journey to conquer the light flyweight crown starts on April 9 for Negrense boxing champion Donnie “Ahas” Nietes as he battles Mexican Armando Vasquez in front of his “kasimanwas” at the University of St. La Salle gym in Bacolod City.

After reigning in the WBO minimum weight for more than three years, Nietes said he is ready to move up from 105 pounds to 108.

His promoter, Michael Aldeguer of the Cebu-based ALA Promotions said that after the fight against Vasquez, Nietes will be eligible to bid for the WBO light flyweight title.

Leonardia endorses
Apr. 9 bout at USLS

Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia yesterday said his office will favorably endorse to the Sangguniang Panlungsod the request of ALA Promotions, a boxing promotional outfit, for amusement tax exemption for the staging of the PINOY PRIDE 5: Battle of Champions on April 9, 2011 at the coliseum of the University of St. La Salle in Bacolod City.

Leonardia said, “Let us consider this event as a stepping stone to other big events. With all the attention that is being given to boxing, after the Pacquiao phenomenon, we are very happy that Bacolod has a share of the limelight.”

He said he and the SP are appreciative that WBO minimumweight world champ Donnie Nietes, who is a Bacoleño, has decided to have a major boxing bout in the city, and that will again put Bacolod in the boxing map.
