    I feel like Nietes is going to own Palicte in this fight. Actually this is one of the fights that I'm really eager to watch. I don't think I have ever had the pleasure of witnessing a Filipino Vs. Filipno boxing world title bout.

    I read online that the last Filipino v Filipino world title bout was last witnessed in the 1920's. So I guess we are really lucky that this one is happening. I also feel like Ahas is going to dominate this fight the same way we saw him do during his IBF Flyweight world title in Februaly.

    I think it's high time that Donnie "Ahas" or "Snake" Nietes to get his 4th world title, I think it's long overdue considering his age. I like watching his fights, it's exciting in a technical way. Donnie Nietes fights like a snake, hence the nickname "Ahas", he's really not a knockout artist but he's exciting in the sense that he would breakdown his opponent bit by bit gaining points and sometimes knocking them off in the latter rounds. Considering his next opponent Donnie Nietes is a sure bet in my book.

    The fight was not one-sided but definitely Nietes had the upper hand particularly in the last round where he could have earned a 10-8 score. But the judges have spoiled the result when the fight was declared a split draw. One judge had it 114-114 while another had it for Nietes with a clear 118-110 and the 3rd judge sided with Palicte for a score of 116-112. Just like the Golovkin-Canelo Alvarez draw, the decision did not sit well with the crowd and boxing fans.
