3 Negrense world champs back to training

BACOLOD CITY, March 25 — Three international boxing champions from Negros Occidental are presently training for their upcoming fight in United States in July.
They are World Boxing Organization (WBO) Junior Flyweight champion Donnie “Ahas” Nietes, WBO Minimumweight champion Merlito “Tiger” Sabillo and Asia Pacific Super Bantamweight champion Genesis “Asukal” Servania.
Citing reports from Antonio L. Aldeguer (ALA) Stable and Promotions of Cebu City, former sports commissioner Monico Puentevella said that the three will fight in the same card.
The former congressman of the lone district of the metro, however, failed to disclose who are the challengers of the three.
On the other hand, Puentevella said they are still lobbying to ALA Stable and Promotions if they can also hold title fights for the three of them in Bacolod City so that their fellow Negrenses can see how they fight up close. (PNA)
