Raul Garcia's Camp See No Issue With Cebu For Nietes

By Alfredo Jaime Gomez, notifight.com

Left-hander Ramon "Prince" Garcia, the flyweight champion of the World Boxing Organization, has no issue with going to Cebu, Philippines, to defend his title against local hero and mandatory challenger Donnie Nietes on the 8th of October. Edrulfo Castillo, Garcia's legal adviser, accepted the location and venue "on the condition that there were impartial judges. We have no doubt that Nietes is an excellent fighter."

He also said that Ramon "is very strong at 108 pounds, his natural division. For the last few weeks he's been training in La Paz."

The "Prince" will support his twin brother Raul "Rayito" Garcia, in his defense of the WBO championship, at strawweight, this Saturday in Guadalajara. On that evening, Ulises "Archie" Solis defends his IBF flyweight crown against Jether Oliva.

"Donnie hits and holds on, but I'm sure the 'Prince' will win because he has the potential," said Edrulfo.

Regarding "Rayito," Edrulfo explained that "he had a great preparation, he spent a month in Mexico City. Moises Fuentes is good, has power in his fists, he's a great fighter, but 'Rayito' leads the way with his experience."
