Nietes won’t defend titles vs Fuentes yet

By Ronnie Nathanielsz | Apr. 26, 2013 at 12:01am
World Boxing Organization light flyweight champion Donnie Nietes (31-1-4, 17 KOs) won’t defend his title in a rematch with Moises Fuentes (16-1-1, 8 KOs)  just yet.

ALA Promotions boxing patron Tony Aldeguer told the Manila Standard that Nietes is still recovering from the two bad cuts he suffered in his successful title defense with Fuentes, and cannot even spar yet, making it impossible for him to face Fuentes in July as reported by boxrec.com.

Aldeguer said he wants Nietes to have a tune-up fight before facing Fuentes for the second time, even as he emphasized “we are not afraid of Fuentes. The last two rounds in their fight showed us how to beat him handily.”

However, Aldeguer said that Milan Melindo is definitely fighting Juan Francisco Estrada, who won the WBO/World Boxing Association flyweight title from Brian Viloria via a split decision at the Cotai Arena of the sprawling Venetian Resort Hotel, which will once again be the venue for the title fight.
