I caught up with WBO jr. flyweight World Champion Donnie "Ahas" Nietes (29-1-3, 16 KOs) and his trainer Edmundo Villamor at the press conference of Pinoy Pride XIV: "Night of Champions" at the Bay View Hotel in Manila Thursday afternoon.

Nietes will be facing Mexican challenger Felipe Salguero (16-2-1, 11 KOs) this Saturday at the Resorts World Hotel and Casino in Pasay City, for his first defense of his title he snagged from Ramon Garcia Hirales.

Nietes aims to score a convincing victory after his tightly-contested win in October, and has made adjustments in training to correct the stamina issues that plagued him in his last fight. "I sacrificed a lot, trained hard, and worked on my stamina since my last fight, and I'm good to go for all 12 rounds this time," Nietes told me.

"We added a lot to his training, put an emphasis on his eating habits, discipline, because we really wanted to improve his stamina. It's important that he'll be in great shape for all 12 rounds," Nietes' trainer Villamor added.

Amidst promises from his younger opponent that he will take the WBO belt away with him when he returns to Mexico, Nietes chose to leave his talking in the ring come fight night.

"I'll just do my talking in the ring, because that's where boxing is fought anyway, not outside it," Nietes said.

Weigh-ins for Pinoy Pride XIV will be held at the Robinson's Galleria Activity Center at 12 noon, Friday, June 1st. Tickets are still available at all National Bookstore outlets, Resorts World box office, and through TicketWorld.com.ph.

Sad to say that this pinoy world boxing champ who has defended his crown 3 times in mexico is virtually an unknown fighter even here in the Philippines. All we know is pacquiao.
