Nietes, Sabillo receive
incentives from mayor
World boxing champions Donnie Nietes and Merlito Sabillo received P10,000 each as cash incentive from the Bacolod City government.
Nietes, who successfully defended his World Boxing Organization light flyweight belt against Mexican challenger Sammy Gutierrez, and Sabillo, who got away with a split draw decision against Nicaraguan Carlos Buitrago, paid a courtesy call at the Bacolod Government Center yesterday.
Bacolod Mayor Monico Puentevella, who turned over the checks to the two boxing champions, reminded them to stay fit, take care of their health and invest their money wisely.
