Nietes wants go up 115, said there is no more challenge in his current weight

After a successful debut in HBO, Donnie Nietes is now planning to move up to 115 lbs to gain  big fight against Chocolatito or Juan Francisco Estrada.


“For me I really like to go up [to 115] because as I see it there is no more challenge for me in my current weight. Also it was my wish for a long time to fight the biggest names out there like [Juan Francisco] Estrada and Chocolatito [Roman Gonzalez],” Nietes said.

Nietes also showed interest in fighting Sor Rungvisai of Thailand “I've have seen something in Rungvisai's fighting style that I think I would be able to defeat him,” Nietes said.

Meanwhile, Chocolatito also wants to face Nietes for the vacant World Boxing Organization (WBO) super flyweight world title, but their plan is to fight in Gonzalez hometown in Nicaragua. ALA Manager said that the fight could be signed but never in Nicaragua it must be in a neutral location.

There's also a possible rematch against Juan Francisco Estrada and Sor Rungvisai for the Superfly 3 and might be a good decision if they add Chocolatito vs Ahas in the card.
