Nietes sets eyes
on next division title

World Boxing Organization reigning light flyweight champion   Donnie “Ahas” Nietes said yesterday  he is giving himself  two or three more fights to defend his light flyweight before moving up in weight  to  the next division.

Before his successful foray in the light flyweight territory, with the rare distinction of being named as The Ring Light Flyweight World Champion, Nietes held the WBO minimumweight title for more than three years before moving up in weight.  

Nietes, who was honored in Murcia yesterday as the town’s boxing hero, said he wants to have a crack at  the flyweight title and  is setting his eyes on fighting the current WBO and WBA champions Juan Francisco Estrada and Roman Gonzalez, the current WBA light flyweight titlist and former WBA minimumweight champion.

The governor assured the athletes in his message of his continued support and encouraged them to do better in the next competitions.
