Another scandal in boxing has been unearthed in which photos of ALA fighters WBO light flyweight champion Donnie Nietes, former WBO/WBA flyweight challenger Milan Melindo and retired fighter Reman Salem were falsely used in place of Filipino boxers scheduled to figure in a boxing promotion in Mexico on January 11 titled Mexico vs Philippines.

The fight card promoted by Reginaldo and Oswaldo Kuchile Promociones del Pueblo is set to take place at the Auditorium Benito Juarez in Vera Cruz, Mexico.
 
Respected  ALA Promotions patron Tony  Aldeguer wants Games and Amusements Board chairman Ramon Guanzon to conduct an immediate investigation into the “irregular usage of the photos” and insisted that “this gross misrepresentation should not be left unheeded especially since it concern a Filipino World Champion whose photo shows him wearing a Filipino head band and a championship belt obviously to mislead the public into believing that this could be a Championship fight since it is scheduled for 12 rounds as reflected in the boxrec.com.”
 
Aldeguer disclosed that the photo of Donnie Nietes was used for Filipino light flyweight Mark Duran  while the photo of Milan Melindo was used for bantamweight super featherweight Vergel Nebram and the photo of retired boxer Reman Salem was used for Adones Aguelo.
 
Duran (11-9-2, 5 KO’s)  is scheduled to face former WBA champion Ramon Garcia Hirales (19-4-1, 12 KO’s), Nebran (11-6-1, 7 KO’s) is set to fight former WBC super flyweight champion and current WBA Latino bantamweight champion Tomas Rojas (41-14-1, 27 KO’s)  while Philippine Boxing Federation champion Aguelo (20-8-2, 12 KO’s) will clash with former Latino champion Nery Saguilan (26-4-1, 10 KO’s).
 
Aldeguer told BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard he had he asked the GAB chairman to identify who the Filipino matchmaker who arranged for these Filipino fighters to fight in Mexico was “since we are sure your office has a copy of their fight contract and also for their travel requirements which needs your approval.”
 
Aldeguer added “we want to get into the bottom of this to find out who sent these photos to the Mexican promoter as we intend to file  legal charges against the person responsible for these false representation of our fighters Donnie Nietes and Milan Melindo” even as he asked Guanzon to “give us the necessary information soonest before the January 11 event in Mexico.”
