SuperFly Just Got Even Better.

Donnie Nietes Has Vacated His Flyweight Title For A Tilt At The Most Competitive Division In Boxing.

By

Regular readers of my literary pieces will know just how much I love the Super Flyweight division. My personal opinion is that it is simply the best division in the sport bar none. Although the super-welter and super-lightweight divisions are on their way up. For me, none can compete with the excitement and depth of talent that the 115-pound division provides. 

 HBO must be commended for the fantastic job they have done in bringing this division to the forefront of mainstream boxing attention. Super-Flyweight is effectively dominated by south-east Asian fighters, give or take one or two exceptions. Unless you are an avid, die-hard boxing fan up until recently YouTube or live-streaming was your only real source of information on this great division. That was of course until HBO put on their first 'SuperFly' card headlined by the former pound for pound number one, Roman Gonzalez, and new pound for pound elect Sor Rungvisai. Such was the success of the first telecast, HBO did a second this February. Rungvisai again capturing mainstream attention. Only this time against a man who I think is the most underrated fighter in the sport today, Juan Francisco Estrada. If you've yet to see 'SuperFly' 2 I implore you to make time to watch it. The main event is certainly a fight of the year candidate. 

But wait you said this division just got better? Why yes it did. Aside from the names I have already mentioned. The division also boasts Jerwin Ancajas, Kal Yafai, McWilliams Arroyo and Carlos Cuadras. But it doesn't stop there. News has broken this morning that Filipino great and three weight world champion, Donnie Nietes is due to throw his name into the SuperFly ring. He will contest for the WBO Super-Flyweight title left vacant by Noaya Inoue's move to bantamweight.

“This is the challenge I have been waiting for,” said the 35-year-old Nietes (41-1-4, 23 knockouts). “To go up in weight is never easy but this is my dream; to become a four-division world champion and to fight all the big names at super flyweight.”

Nietes was recently installed as the no. 1 contender by the WBO, with his compatriot Aston Palicte a spot below at two, followed by Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez and McWilliams Arroyo. 

Promoter Michael Aldeguer said “No directive yet from the WBO as to who Donnie will be fighting against but what is sure though is he will be fighting for the vacant 115 title,”
