Nietes ready for Fuentes
NO matter what his record is, light flyweight challenger Moises Fuentes of Mexico doesn’t bother reigning World Boxing Organization champion Donnie Nietes.
ALA Promotions patron Tony Aldeguer was reacting to reports that Fuentes, the WBO minimum weight champion, had a better record than the one reported by boxrec.com.
Cebu-based Mexican Mike Lopez, who works in the corner of visiting Hispanic fighters, said Fuentes’ manager Jorge Barrera, brother of former world champion and Mexican legend Marco Antonio Barrera said the official record of the challenger is 26-1 with 20 knockouts and not 16-1, 8 knockouts as reported by boxrec.com.
“Even if he has more fights and some were not recorded, he is beatable and while Nietes is ready for a tough fight, his experience should make a difference,” Aldeguer said.
Nietes was reported to be in his best shape ever and ready against Mexican challenger, who enjoys a height advantage and is known to have some punching power.
