Nietes Wants Chocolatito, Donaire's Coach Gives Advice

by Ronnie Nathanielsz

The father/trainer of five division world champion Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire believes that the best way to beat undefeated pound for pound No.1 Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez is to out-box him and not go toe-to-toe on the inside.

Donaire spoke to New Standard/ after WBO light flyweight champion Donnie “Ahas” Nietes reiterated his desire to fight Gonzalez after he scored a near shut-out win over Mexican champion Juan “Pinky” Alejo at the StubHub Center in Carson City, California and on the same night Gonzalez battered former two division champion Brian Viloria to score a 9th round TKO at Madison Square Garden some hours earlier.

Donaire cautioned Nietes “don’t go toe to toe. Hit and run because Gonzalez is very good inside.”
“Dodong” Donaire said he saw “Chocolatito’s “ fights a couple of times with guys who had no power but could box.

"If you outbox him you’ll win but if you go toe to toe he is very good on the inside and has very good defense. Punch and move, let him make the mistakes.”

Among the fighters that went the distance with Gonzalez was one-time minimumweight champion Katsunari Takayama in a WBA minimumweight title fight on July 14, 2009, Francisco Rosas also in a title fight on February 28, 2009, Manuel “Chango” Vargas in a light flyweight title clash on March 19, 2011 and Juan Francisco Estrada also in a light flyweight battle on November 17, 2012.

One common opponent was “Chango” Vargas against whom Nietes won a split decision  on September 12, 2009.

The WBC reported that Gonzalez “ brilliantly defended his WBC flyweight title, wearing down and ultimately overwhelming Viloria by TKO in the ninth round, underlining his accolade of Pound for Pound Best in the whole wide World. “

Nietes is a good technical boxer who could be a hall of famer with the number of title defenses he has been racking up, but he is a nobody in terms of boxing he has no name and no fame,…

Nietes is a tough customer, but I see Gonzalez disposing of him in the mid to late rounds. Nietes tends to fade quite a bit, I seriously doubt the aging warrior will be able to hang with a machine like…
