Nietes-Palicte in works for "Pinoy Pride 45"

WBO #1 Super Flyweight Contender Donnie "Ahas" Nietes vs. #2 Contender Aston Palicte is now in works for another Pinoy Pride Series of ALA Promotions. Possible on July 21, 2018.

This was reported by Ryan Songalia of RingTV:
Aldeguer says that since Ancajas-Sultan is set for Fresno, California, he’d like to host the following all-Filipino clash in the Philippines, and already has a July 21 date for ABS-CBN’s “Pinoy Pride” series to televise it. 
“It’s going to be a historical moment for Philippine boxing, having two world title fights involving all Filipinos in the same division,” said Aldeguer. -
Last April 30, both Parties of Nietes and Palicte received a letter regarding vacant WBO superflyweight title.

If this fight goes on! this would be another Filipino vs Filipino world title match for this year next to another ALA fighter Jonas Sultan who will face the IBF world superflyweight champion Jerwin Ancajas on May 26th.

Meanwhile, Albert Pagara will headline Pinoy Pride 44 this coming June 9, 2018 in Maasin City, Leyte against Laryea Gabriel Odoi of Ghana.
