Garcia Motivated To Stop Nietes' 14-0 Run Against Mexicans

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

Mexican challenger Raul “Rayito” Garcia who arrives on Monday night for his light flyweight title fight against the longest reigning Filipino world champion Donnie Nietes at the St. La Salle Coliseum in Bacolod City on May 28, hopes to end the reign of terror by “Mexican Destroyer” Nietes whose record against Mexican opponents is 14-0 with a majority draw against Moises Fuentes on March 2, 2013 which Nietes avenged with a rousing 9th round knockout in a rematch, dropping Fuentes three-times in the fateful round at the Mall of Asia Arena on May 10, 2014.

“Rayito” Garcia, identical twin brother of Ramon Garcia Hirales from whom Nietes won the title in the same St. La Salle Coliseum in Bacolod City on October 8, 2011with a lopsided decision on the scorecards of the judges although the fight appeared closer than the scorecards of the two American judges indicated.

Carlos Ortiz Jr scored it 117-111 while Lisa Giampa had it 118-110 with Filipino judge Danrex Tapdasan also scoring the fight for Nietes by a much closer 115-113 tally.


Among the victims of Nietes who headlines the fight card titled “The Making of a Legend” includes Francisco Rodriguez Jr, Moises Fuentes, SammyGutierrez, Gilberto Parra, Mario Rodriguez, Manuel Vargas, Carlos Velarde, Jesus Silvestre, Juan Alejo and “Rayito’s twin brother Ramon Garcia Hirales.

Fernando Beltran of Zanfer Promotions has said that “Rayito” who won the IBF minimum weight title with a split decision over Filipino Florante Condes on June 14, 2008 is sure his fighter will surprise Nietes and end the Aztec losing streak
