Donnie Nietes vs. Moises Fuentes Clash For February 2

By Ernesto Castellanos, notifight.com

According to handler Jorge Barrera Tapia, Moises Fuentes (16-1, 8KOs) of Mexico will move up in weight to challenge the junior flyweight champion of the World Boxing Organization Donnie Nietes (31-1-3, 17KOs) on February 2 in the Philippines. Fuentes has received valuable technical advice from former world champion Marco Antonio Barrera, brother of Jorge. Fuentes is the current WBO strawweight champion.

This fight has been approved by WBO, and it will be a duel of champions. This time, Moi is the official challenger, and if he wins then he has to decide which title he plans to keep.

"Although we know that commitment is difficult, we are confident that Moises will be crowned in Manila," said Jorge Barrera.

Good to see Nietes get a good fight. Would like to see him in with Roman Gonzalez or Solis

this is an excellent bout 4 this weight & Fuentes brings it...Nietes always comes 2 fight, but in a few of his past bouts has faded in the end, still I go w/Nietes to retain...
