Jose Nieves (22-2-3, 11 KO's), who put together a run of five straight wins and is now ranked fifth at 118 pounds under the WBO, could be close to a shot at the title captured a few days ago by African boxer Paulus Ambunda (20-0 and 10 KO's), who scored a unanimous decision to unseat Pungluang Sor Singyu (43-2, 28 KO's) in bout staged in Namibia. Nieves', 32-years-old, holds the WBO's Intercontinental title and his career is handled by All Star Promotions and company president Félix 'Tutico' Zabala.

"I think that in my next fight, it could be for the [WBO] title or at the very least I'm already very close [to getting that shot]. Nieves is ranked at fifth but with his latest victory he is going to go up at least three or two places in the rankings. In that fight he knocked out Danny Flores to win the Latino title," said his coach Jose Bonilla.
