Organización Mundial de Boxeo entrega donativos en México

Como parte del programa “Niños libres de drogas” que se han puesto en marcha en varios países, la Organización Mundial de Boxeo (OMB) entregó este jueves donativos a dos casas hogar en el Estado de México y en la Ciudad de México.

Rafael López Santos, miembro del Comité Ejecutivo Mundial de la OMB y en representación del presidente del organismo, Francisco Valcárcel, entregó los donativos, de cuatro mil 500 dólares cada uno, para un total de nueve mil billetes verdes.

Durante su segunda visita del día, en la casa hogar “La Divina Providencia” del Padre Chinchachoma, en la colonia Álamos de la capital del país, se recordó a Luis Pérez, del Comité de Clasificaciones de la OMB y que falleció en diciembre pasado.

Estuvieron presentes pugilistas como César Juárez, Moisés Fuentes y Carlos “Fino” Ruiz, quienes convivieron algunos minutos con los niños de la casa hogar, en la que se da total apoyo a niños de la calle, maltratados o en riesgo social.

“Para la OMB es un privilegio acompañarlos”, dijo Rafael López a nombre de “Paquito” Valcárcel, y destacó que gracias al esfuerzo de los pugilistas sobre el ring se obtienen los donativos que entregan en diversos países, como Puerto Rico, Colombia, Nicaragua “y también llegamos a México, aquí estamos presentes”.

“Estamos felices de convivir, es un orgullo que existan este tipo de instituciones, hay que aplaudir su esfuerzo para sacar adelante a los jovencitos”, dijo Juarez, abogado de profesión y que también tiene una maestría.

Por su parte, “Moi” Fuentes pidió a los pequeños esforzarse para lograr sus objetivos, “desde pequeño tuve un sueño, la esperanza muere al último y si le echan ganas a la vida sí se puede. Ningún sueño es grande y ningún soñador es pequeño”, comentó el excampeón mundial.

Alba Garrido, directora administrativa de la casa hogar que fundó en 1979 Alejandro García Durán, mejor conocido como el “Padre Chinchachoma”, fue la encargada de recibir el cheque simbólico junto a los pugilistas, López Santos y algunos niños ahí presentes.

Al mediodía acudieron a la casa hogar “La Divina Providencia” de la Madre Inés, en San Vicente Chicoloapan, Estado de México, donde también entregaron el mismo donativo y convivieron con los niños.

Unbeaten Japanese speedster Kosei Tanaka acquired his second world belt of the WBO 108-pound championship when he whipped Mexican veteran Moises Fuentes from the outset and caught him with a flurry of punches to badly drop him and score a fine TKO victory at 2:52 of the fifth round on Saturday in Gifu, Japan.

Tanaka, an enfant terrible at 21, seized his second belt in the eighth pro bout, and tied the Japanese record of Naoya Inoue.

Tanaka to collide with Fuentes for vacant WBO 108lb belt on New Year’s Eve

By Joe Koizumi

Unbeaten ex-WBO 105-pound champ Kosei Tanaka (7-0, 4 KOs), Japan, will face Mexican Moises Fuentes (24-2-1, 13 KOs) in quest of the vacant WBO 108-pound championship recently renounced by excellent Filipino Donnie Nietes at Gifu Memorial Hall, Gifu city, on New Year’s Eve. It was announced by Hatanaka Promotions presided by Kiyoshi Hatanaka, ex-WBC super-bantam champ who dethroned Pedro Decima and yielded his belt to Daniel Zaragoza, both in 1991.

Tanaka, now still 21, had acquired the WBO mini-flyweight belt by defeating Mexican Julian Yedras in his only fifth pro bout in May of the previous year. After successfully keeping his title by a come-from-behind knockout of Filipino Vic Saludar in his initial defense, the fast-growing youngster relinquished his belt to move up to the 108-pound category. In his tune-up go Tanaka impressively halted world-rated Filipino Rene Patillano in a light-fly bout this May. 

Should he gain his second world belt in his eighth pro bout, Tanaka will tie the Japanese record of the quickest acquisition of the second world throne previously registered by the current WBO 115-pound ruler Naoya Inoue at the expense of Argentine great Omar Narvaez in the end of 2014. The world mark was registered by Vasyl Lomachenko who did it in his seventh pro bout this June.

Moises Fuentes, 31, had won the WBO 105-pound belt in 2011 and kept it twice to his credit. In 2013, while being the mini-fly champ, the Mexican had an ambitious crack at the WBO 108-pound belt against Filipino champ Donnie Nietes only to draw in a grueling bout in 2013. Fuentes fought a rematch with Fuentes, pitifully losing by a ninth round TKO. The Mexican, however, recently scored five victories including ones over such ex-champs as Oswaldo Novoa and Francisco Rodriguez Jr. to his credit.

Despite Fuentes being a prefight favorite due to his superior ring experience, Tanaka has his youth and physical power that have contributed to his quick advancement. It will be an interesting and competitive confrontation.

Por:  Fernando Campos Robles –

Moisés Fuentes y Oswaldo Novoa se enfrentan este sábado por aztecadeportes.com y Azteca 7

Los Mochis, México. Los boxeadores Moisés Fuentes y Oswaldo “Gallito” Novoa alistan armas para el combate que sostendrán el próximo 25 de julio en esta ciudad, en espera de lograr una oportunidad titular.

Ambos pugilistas, que ya probaron lo que es ser monarcas del mundo, quieren volver a reinar en el mundo del boxeo, y el primer paso será salir con el triunfo en el Polideportivo Centenario de esta ciudad.

Fuentes (21-2-1, 11 KOs) y Novoa (14-4-2, 9 KOs) estarán en la batalla semiestelar, a diez rounds en la división de peso mosca, de la función que encabezarán Juan Carlos “Zurdito” Sánchez y César Juárez.

Moisés ya ostentó el cetro mínimo de la Organización Mundial de Boxeo (OMB), y aunque falló cuando enfrentó al monarca minimosca Donnie Nietes, asegura que ya aprendió de esa derrota, por lo que está listo.

“Fueron factores como el peso y otras cosas que me afectaron bastante para el combate, pero sin pretextos, las cosas pasan por algo y estoy en otra etapa de mi vida personal, tengo bien definido lo que quiero en mi carrera y estamos trabajando como novatos”, dijo.

En tanto, Novoa, quien ya fue campeón minimo del Consejo Mundial de Boxeo (CMB), del que solo hizo una defensa antes de perderlo con el tailandés Wanheng Menayothin, sabe del duro compromiso que tendrá, pero acepta el reto.

“Un triunfo me pone en ruta para la oportunidad de ir por el título mundial mosca y hemos realizado una extraordinaria preparación física y mental para ganar ante un público conocedor de boxeo como Mochis”, aseguró.

Donnie Nietes in Amazing Shape For Fuentes Rematch

Article by:  Ronnie Nathanielsz –

WBO light flyweight champion Donnie “Ahas” Nietes is in terrific shape for his mandatory rematch against Interim champion Moises Fuentes of Mexico in the main event of “Pinoy Pride XXV” at the Mall of Asia Arena on Saturday.

Strength and conditioning coach Nick Curson told the BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard that Nietes “looks amazing. His  physique has changed and so has his endurance which was always kind of suspect” as evidenced in his first fight against Fuentes when Nietes appeared to fade in the last couple of rounds which was aggravated by two cuts he suffered above his eyebrows.

Curson revealed that they had done some “altitude training” using a simulator which he brought from the US and has used for the last month. He indicated that as a result of his overall training regimen Nietes “looks phenomenal.”

He said Nietes “has been sparring with some great guys such as Milan Melindo and former IBF light flyweight champion Johnreil Casimero who lost his title on the scales last week when he came in five pounds over the 108 limit.

The strength and conditioning coach told us that in his first fight with Fuentes, Nietes “tired out” and that now “he knows his faults and has been working on the fight strategy.”

He echoed what trainer Edito “Ala” Villamor told us and that is Nietes “looked great (in sparring) and he is ready to go. His conditioning is there and I don’t see why he can’t win.”

Curson was clearly impressed with featherweight Rey “Boom Boom” Bautista who is making a comeback after a close , twelve round split decision loss to Jose Ramirez more than one year ago.

He said Bautista has “improved so much. He was so tense, so tight in his last fight that every punch appeared it would knock him down.” Curson disclosed that the flaws have been corrected and “now he’s got head movement, his muscles are more relaxed and he looks like he is 19 again and the kid they were talking about as the next Manny Pacquiao.”

During a workout last Saturday, Curson said Bautista “ he was like a Mike Tyson. This kid was so loose and explosive. It was great to see.”

Recalling that “Boom Boom’S father “used to throw him in the water when he was 5 or 6 years old to get the fishing nets out he has known hard work his whole life” but pointed out that “brute strength doesn’t work well in boxing.”

Curson said “ you have to have a little bit of finesse, combined with a little bit of that and explosive power and that’s what we’ve been working on. I think he’ll look good in this fight and show great improvement. I think it will take one or two more fights to see what he is really capable of. I think at that point he will be a world champion. I really do.”

Fuentes Arrives Early, Determined To Defeat Nietes

MOY

By Ronnie Nathanielsz –

Mexico’s mandatory challenger for the WBO light flyweight title of Donnie “Ahas” Nietes, Moises Fuentes, arrived yesterday a full ten days before his scheduled rematch which promises to be an all-out war.

Fuentes who arrived with trainer Julio Barrera, brother of Mexican legend Marco Antonio Barrera looked “really good, ripped and ready” according to ALA Promotions vice president Dennis Canete.

Fuentes and his supporters including Marco Antonio Barrera in whose gym he trains, expressed their displeasure over the majority draw that enabled Nietes to retain his title in their first clash and have vowed to avenge that setback in which American judges Adalaide Byrd and Pat Russel scored the fight a 114-114 draw while Filipino judge Danrex Tapdasan whose assignment the Fuentes camp initially objected to, had Nietes the winner 115-113.

Nietes himself was not satisfied with the decision and is determined to erase any doubts as to who is indeed the champion.

He has trained harder than ever before for the much-awaited showdown at the Mall of Asia Arena on May 10 and has vowed not to make the same mistakes he made in their first fight by getting drawn into a brawl with Fuentes who likes to drive his opponent against the ropes and throw flurries  to the body and head.

ALA Promotions president Michael Aldeguer told BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard that if Nietes only sticks to the gameplan he should have no trouble overcoming the challenge of Fuentes.

Nietes who is chasing the record of the late Gabriel “Flash” Elorde who reigned as world junior lightweight champion for nearly seven-and-a-half- years trained in the Wild Card Gym in Los Angeles and also in San Diego and sparred with hard-hitting former world champion Giovanni Segura and American Matthew Villanueva.

Fuentes who has a record of 19-1-1 with 10 knockouts has won three bouts in a row since the Nietes title fight, scoring TKO victories over Luis De La Rosa who lost badly to IBF champion Johnreil Casimero and Omar Salado.

Nietes, on the other hand, is coming off a spectacular 3rd round TKO over former WBC Silver champion Sammy Gutierrez last November in a fight when Nietes dropped Gutierrez three times, twice in the opening round.

The “Pinoy Pride XXV” fight  card will be telecast by the giant broadcast network ABS-CBN WITH 2012 “Fighter of the Year” Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire joining Atty. Ed Tolentino and this reporter on the television panel.

Nietes Aims For Convincing Win in Fuentes Rematch

donni

By Ronnie Nathanielsz –

WBO light flyweight champion Donnie “Ahas” Nietes, who clashes in a mandatory rematch against Mexico’s Moises Fuentes at the Mall of Asia Arena on May 10 has looked impressive in training.

ALA Promotions president Michael Aldeguer told BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard  “Donnie is ready for this chance. It’s the biggest fight out there for Donnie. It will be a tough fight. I’ve never seen him work so hard – he trained in the US has a great conditioning coach now in Nick Curson and he’s ready to go.”

Aldeguer said Nietes who is chasing the record of the late junior lightweight champion Gabriel “Flash” Elorde who reigned as champion for almost seven-and-a-half years “ is really right up  there. This is a fight that is going to be defining is career. We are happy to bring it to the Philippines.”

He said Nietes “has to stick to the game plan. He has a good right – picks his punches” but was carried away in his first encounter with Fuentes when he “got into a brawl which is not his fight.”

Aldeguer disclosed that right now his trainers as well as Nietes  “are reviewing the tapes and looking at what he did right and what he did wrong”. He believes Nietes “has matured a lot. He knows that to make history this is the fight. If he wants to break the record of Flash Elorde this is the fight that will define him and his career.”

Nietes showed he had power when he dropped former WBC Silver champion Sammy Gutierrez three times en route to a 3rd round TKO at the  famed Araneta Coliseum and showed he has power.

Aldeguer noted that “early in his career Donnie was one of the biggest punchers we had in the stable and he then became a very calculating fighter. He knew how to win and became comfortable with that.”

Nietes understands that against Fuentes “ that he needs a convincing win and needs to dominate Fuentes and do the right things and I think he’s learned a lot. He is ready to go and it’s a fight for his life. And I think it wont be an easy fight  but I think it will define what Donnie really is.”

Aldeguer believes that if he followed the game plan in their first fight “he would have won easily. There is no question why he will not win” in the rematch.

Nietes promises to KO Fuentes in opportunity arises

spo2di

DONNIE ‘Ahas’ Nietes is leaving nothing to chance in his rematch against Moises Fuentes for the World Boxing Organization light-flyweight title on May 10 at the Mall of Asia Arena.

The reigning champion is aware the majority 12-round draw he eked out in his first meeting with the Mexican a year ago at the Waterfront Hotel and Resort in Cebu left a bad taste in the mouth, so much so that he vows to go for a knockout if given the chance.

“Ina-knockout ko siya ‘pag may time,” said the two-time world champion in Tuesday’s session of the Philippine Sportswriters Association Forum at Shakey’s Malate. “‘Pag may chance, patutumbahin ko siya.”

Proof that he’s preparing hard against the 28-year-old challenger from Mexico City, Nietes spent the early part of his training in the US, where he sparred with the likes of former world champion Giovanni Segura and American Matthew Villanueva.

Now back in the country, the pride of Murcia, Negros Occidental will complete the second part of his training in Cebu.

“Grabe ang paghahandang ginagawa namin ngayon, kaya kumpiyansa akong mapapanatili ko ang korona,” said Nietes (32-1-4, 18 KOs), who will be turning 32 three days after the fight.

But ALA Promotions vice president Dennis Canete, who was also a guest in the forum presented by Shakey’s, Accel, and the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation, was quick to add the mandatory title defense of Nietes won’t come in handy.

“Every rematch is dangerous,” Canete admitted. “Siyempre, na-gauge ka na nu’ng opponent mo and Moises Fuentes is a great fighter. So it’s going to be tough.”

A former WBO minimumweight title holder who fought and won against the likes of Ivan Calderon and Raul Garcia, Fuentes (19-1-1, 10 KOs) is a on a three-fight winning streak since facing Nietes, including technical knockout victories in his last two matches against Luis De la Rosa and Omar Salado.

Nietes on the other hand, is fresh from a sensational third-round technical knockout of Sammy Gutierrez last November at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.

At the same time, the heartbreaking 10th round loss suffered by stablemate Merlito Sabillo to Francisco Rodriguez of Mexico to yield his WBO 105-lbs. crown over the weekend, also serves as added motivation to Nietes in his fight against Fuentes.

NIETES SPARS FOUR TORRID ROUNDS WITH SEGURA

nietes-segura.sparring.330w

 

By:  Ronnie Natalnietz –

WBO light flyweight champion Donnie “Ahas” Nietes (32-1-4, 18 KO’s) who is preparing diligently for his rematch with mandatory challenger Moises Fuentes (19-1-1, 10 KO’s) of Mexico sparred four torrid rounds with former world light flyweight champion Giovanni Segura (31-3-1. 27 KO’s) at former world champion Daniel Ponce De Leon’s Gym.

Trainer Edito “Ala” Villamor said the sparring session went well and was a good experience for Nietes since Segura is a slugger and will suit Nietes well when he fights (mandatory challenger) Moises Fuentes” on May 10 at the Mall of Asia along Manila Bay.

Villamor said they were originally scheduled to spar six rounds but it had to be cut short since there was a another fighter who weighed 126 pounds who wanted to spar with Segura, a former No. 8 in the Ring pound for pound rankings before former WBO champion Brian Viloria battered Segura to score an 8th round TKO victory in a WBO flyweight title defense at the Ynares Sports Center in Pasig Manila on December 11, 2011.

The trainer said he spoke to Segura after the sparring session and the former world champion told him “it’s is really difficult to find a sparring partner in the US that weighs below 122 pounds.” Segura himself weighs 123.

Villamor met with manager Javier Capitillo who also manages Alejandro Gonzales whom Villamor described as “good” after watching him spar in the presence of Ponce De Leon who was with his trainer Mario Morales.

He said the gym which “is properly managed by Ponce De Leon’s wife and is clean” also has several sparring partners for Filipino fighters at 122 pounds and above.

Villamor disclosed that Nietes, who will return to Manila to attend the Gabriel “Flash” Elorde Annual Awards on March 25, was working with outstanding strength and conditioning coach Nick Curson who reportedly did an excellent job with WBO minimum weight champion Merlito “Tiger” Sabillo who defends his title in Monterrey against No. 9 ranked Mexican Francisco Rodriguez Jr in a fight to be telecast by the giant broadcast network ABS-CBN at 10:15 a.m. on Sunday.

Viva Sports will telecast a pre-fight special on the Sabillo-Rodriguez Jr title clash on Pinoy Box Office (PBO) over SkyCable on Saturday at 8:30 p.m.

The special will provide highlights of four of Rodriguez’ fights which would give fight fans a chance to size up the challenger of Sabillo.

Entrega la OMB un importante donativo a la Casa Hogar La Divina Providencia

1525435_10151804092796680_6315000_n

TEXCOCO, México, Ene. 3, 2014.- La Organización Mundial de Boxeo continúa con su noble labor altruista en nuestro país, y en menos de 15 días realizó un segundo donativo a través de su programa “Niños Libres de Drogas”.

El organismo boxístico que encabeza el boricua Francisco Valcárcel, efectuó este viernes un importante donativo a la Casa Hogar La Divina Providencia, ubicada en el poblado de San Vicente Chicoloapan, en el Estado de México.

1536485_10151804092201680_336509895_n

El evento fue presidido por el representante en México del ente boxístico, el Licenciado Rafael López Santos, quien junto con los boxeadores Moisés Fuentes, actual monarca de las 105 libras, y Daniel “Bad Boy” Rosas entregaron un cheque por 4 mil dólares a la directora de la Casa Hogar, la madre Inés Valdivia González.

Esta noble mujer, quien pese a sus más de 86 años de vida, muestra una lucidez extraordinaria agradeció el apoyo para la Casa Hogar que abrió sus puertas el 8 de julio de 1965, en un terreno cerca de la carretera México-Texcoco con sólo tres niños, y que ahora cuenta ya con 240 pequeñines, muchos de ellos con problemas cerebrales.

Los púgiles que asistieron se olvidaron por un momento de los encordados y los duros entrenamientos, para convivir y hasta dar clases de boxeo a los pequeños que no dejaron de pedir autógrafos y tomarse la foto del recuerdo.

La madre Inés, aún con el rostro que no podía ocultar su felicidad, se dijo muy agradecida, ya que con esta ayuda los niños y jóvenes, que habitan dicha Casa Hogar, recibirán una mejor atención.

1533918_10151804092131680_821793289_n

López Santos, acompañado también por el juez Fabricio Cid, pieza clave en la logística del evento, resaltó el apoyo y humildad de los boxeadores para asistir a este tipo de eventos, “es una cosa extraordinaria también que ellos manifiesten, aparte de su grandeza como deportistas destacado, su humildad como seres humanos”.

Nietes to face Fuentes in Mexico

NIETES VS FUENTES.2ND

By:  Joaquin Henson –

MANILA, Philippines – WBO lightflyweight champion Donnie (Ahas) Nietes of Murcia, Negros Occidental, will battle mandatory challenger Moises Fuentes in Mexico late this year, his manager Michael Aldeguer confirmed recently, but is set to make a voluntary defense earlier against an opponent still to be named.

Aldeguer said he has come to terms with Zanfer, the Mexican outfit that promotes Fuentes, to stage the rematch in Mexico in November or December. Last March, Nietes and Fuentes fought to a majority 12-round draw at the Waterfront Hotel Pacific Ballroom in Lahug. The outcome was disputed by both camps. Nietes’ manager Marco Antonio Barrera said in his view, Fuentes won by a margin of four rounds. But ALA Boxing chairman Tony Aldeguer disagreed, asserting that Nietes threw the clearer and harder punches in a close fight.

When Fuentes met Nietes, he still held the WBO minimumweight championship. The Mexican has since relinquished the throne and is now the No. 1 contender in the 108-pound division. Filipino Merlito Sabillo, who also belongs to the ALA stable, has succeeded Fuentes as WBO 105-pound titleholder.

For a while, it appeared that Nietes would not agree to a rematch particularly as Fuentes demanded as a condition that no Filipino judge would be assigned by WBO president Paco Valcarcel. In the first encounter, Filipino judge Danrex Tapdasan scored it 115-113 for Nietes while San Diego’s Pat Russell and Las Vegas’ Adalaide Byrd saw it 114-all. Aldeguer said Fuentes had no business making the demand particularly as he never complained when a Mexican judge was on the panel in two of Nietes’ three title defenses as WBO minimumweight champion in Mexico.

It is not known if Valcarcel will assign a Filipino or a Mexican for the return engagement in Mexico. What is certain is the rematch will be in Fuentes’ home country. Aldeguer said since Fuentes is the No. 1 contender, he is entitled to challenge Nietes once more.

“Donnie sustained two big cuts above both eyes last March and he’s still not allowed to do any sparring,” said Michael Aldeguer. “But his next fight will be on Aug. 24 in Cebu. It will be a voluntary defense before the rematch with Fuentes.” Aldeguer said no opponent has been identified for the voluntary defense at the moment but he will be in the top 10 ratings.

Two of the top 10 contenders are Filipinos, No. 5 Joebert Alvarez and No. 8 Randy Petalcorin so they’re not in the list of Aldeguer’s candidates. Aside from Fuentes, there are two Mexicans in the top 10, No. 3 Javier Mendoza and No. 10 Odion Zaleta. Aldeguer will likely not tap a Mexican for the optional defense. That leaves No. 2 Kompayak Porporamook of Thailand, No. 4 Noknoi Sitthiprasert of Thailand, No. 5 Shin Ono of Japan, No. 7 Luis Alberto Rios of Panama and No. 9 Felix Alvarado of Nicaragua.

Kompayak, the former WBC lightflyweight champion, is now the interim WBA flyweight titlist so he’s moved up in weight. Rios was outpointed by IBF lightflyweight champion Johnriel Casimero last March so he wouldn’t be an attraction for Filipino fans. By process of elimination, the remaining candidates are Noknoi, Ono and Alvarado.

Noknoi, 26, has a 42-4 record, with 24 KOs. He has won his last 41 outings after losing four of his first five bouts since turning pro in 2003. The Thai lost a decision to Filipino Dondon Jimenea but has beaten all his other Filipino opponents, namely Edison Berwela (W6), Rey Loreto (W6), Donny Mabao (W10 twice), Dindo Nacionales (KO4), Joel Rafols (KO8), Carlo Besares (KO2), Jason Geda (KO3) and Tommy Terrado (W10).

Ono, 30, has never faced a Filipino. He could be seriously considered as Japan recently recognized the WBO. Ono’s record is 15-5-2, with 2 KOs. His last win by stoppage came in 2004 over Keijiro Mizuno and he has since figured in 14 bouts, losing thrice, two by knockout.

Alvarado, 24, is a dangerous customer with a 16-0 record, including 13 KOs. He’s coming off a first round knockout win over Carlos Melo last April. Melo went the distance in losing a 12-round decision to Filipino Milan Melindo in 2008. Six of Alvarado’s 13 wins by knockout came in the first round, indicating brutal punching power.
