Pinoy Pride 18 Results: Nietes vs. Fuentes ends in a draw

2 Mar

The Philippine‘s longest reigning current world champion Donnie ‘Ahas’ Nietes (31-1-4 17KOs) retained his World Boxing Organization (WBO) light-flyweight belt after his fight against WBO minimumweight champion Moises Fuentes (16-1-1 8 KOs) of Mexico ended in a majority draw decision. It was Nietes’ second successful defense of his light-flyweight title.  Nietes held the  WBO minimumweight from 2006 to 2010.  It was a very close match right from the opening bell as Fuentes was comfortable at the Cebu City Waterfront Hotel. Nietes used his superior counter-punching skills somehow negate the aggressiveness of the Mexican challenger.

Fuentes was able to do real damage in the 6th round when he bloodied both the champions eyes.  Nietes was able to fight on despite the bleeding and even landed some good shots while Fuentes was trying to finish the match. Fuentes was still charging very strongly even in the late rounds. Ahas, however, was able to find his second wind as he able to score some punches and use his lateral quickness to evade the charging Fuentes in the final 2 rounds.  By winning the final 2 rounds, Nietes was able salvage a draw as the judges scored were announced.  The bout was scored 115-113 in favor Nietes by Atty. Danrex Tapdasan while Adelaide Byrd and Pat Rusell  scored it at even 114-114.

Jason “El Niño” Pagara (29-2, 18 KOs) KO6  Rosbel ‘Lobito’ Montoya (16-4-1 13 KOs)

Cebu-based Jason Pagara avenged his loss last year to Mexico‘s Rosbel Montoya by winning by technical knock out over the Mexcian on the 6th round of their 12 round bout en route to earning the vacant WBO International Welterweight title.  Pagara started strong by knocking down Montoya in the first round after a flurry of combinations to the head and the body.  The visitor fell again to the canvass on the 3rd down.  On the 6th round, Montoya turned his back from Pagara after being hit prompting the referee to stop the bout at 1:41 in the said round.  The win was the second straight for Pagara after losing to Montoya via unanimous decision last year in a bout held at the same venue were last night’s bout was held.  It was Montoya’s second straight loss after losing to Claudio Alfredo Olmedo via a similar 6 round KO last March 24 for the interim WBO Latino Light-Welterweight title.

Genesis “Azukal” Servania (19W-0L, 6 KO’s) UD Jorge “El Feroz” Pazos (21W-4L, 14 KO’s)

Bacolod’s Genesis Servania continued his winning streak after beating Jorge Pazos of Mexico for the vacant WBO Asia-Pacific Super Bantamweight championship. The undefeated Servania had a virtual boxing clinic as he totally dominated the 12 round fight by hitting countless of accurate power shots.  The Mexican fell in the 8th and 11th round but managed to survive until the final bell of the bout. All 3 judges scored it 118-107 for Servania.

Jimrex “The Executioner” Jaca (35W-6L-3D, 20 KOs) KO8 Angel “Arcangel” Martinez (13W-3L-1D, 9KOs)

Jaca’s last bout was held last August 6, 2011 when he won over journeyman Felipe Demecillo at the Mandaue Sports Complex. In last night’s fight, Jaca did not look like someone who had a long lay off as he dominated Martinez and was able knock down his opponent in the 3rd and 7th rounds before the end came in the final round.  It was a great tune-up win for Jaca as he is scheduled to fight again in ALA Promotion’s card on October 20 at the Mall of Asia.
