Nietes: "I'm 100% sure I will win"

Donnie Nietes is slated to face the Thailander Komgrich Nantapech on April 29, 2017 in Cebu City, Philippines for the vacant IBF World flyweight title.

Nietes is a former minumumweght and light flyweight world champion, now trying his luck for the vacant IBF World Flyweight Title.

The 34 years old no. 1 contender said “I've trained very hard for this fight. I've studied my opponent very carefully. I'm 100% sure I will win. If there is an opportunity, I will knock him [Nantapech] out,”

However, the Thailander is looking for an upset and add honot to their country like his compatriot Srisaket Sor Rungvisai beat the No.1 pound for pound fighter Roman Gonzalez last week.

Aside from Nietes, Mark Magsayo and Jeo Santisima will also see in action at Pinoy Pride 40.
