Magiging “Magnifico” kaya si Magsayo?
DONNIE ‘AHAS’ NIETES, MULING MANUNUKLAW SA “PINOY PRIDE 40: DOMINATION” SA S+A

Magbabalik na sa loob ng ring ang WBO Light Flyweight champion na si Donnie ‘Ahas’ Nietes upang harapin si Komgrich Nantapech ng Thailand para sa bakanteng trono ng IBF Featherweight sa “Pinoy Pride 40: Domination,” na mapapanood ngayong Linggo (April 30) sa ABS-CBN ng 3:30pm at may primetime telecast sa S+A ng 8pm.

Mapapanood naman ito ng LIVE mula sa Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino sa pamamagitan ng SKYCable Pay-Per-View sa Sabado (April 29) ng 6pm.

Nais sungkitin ni Nietes (39-4-1; 22KOs) ang bakanteng IBF Featherweight title para isama sa koleksyon niya na kinabibilangan ng sinturon sa WBO Inter-continental Featherweight division. Iniwan na ni Nietes ang Light Flyweight division, kung saan naghari siya mula 2004 hanggang 2015. Kapag mapatumba niya si Nantapech (22-3; 15KOs), ito na ang ikatlong dibisyong napag-harian ni Nietes na pinakamatagal na kampeon ng Pilipinas sa boxing.

Bukod pa kay Nietes, aakyat na muli sa ring ang kanyang stablemate sa ALA Boxing Gym na si Mark ‘Magnifico’ Magsayo (15-0; 11KOs) kung saan haharapin niya ang beterano mula sa Tanzania na si Issa Nampepeche (24-7-4; 11KOs) sa undercard ng “Pinoy Pride 40: Domination.” Ika-16 sa mundo ang ranking ni Magsayo sa lahat ng mga featherweight, habang number one naman sa mga Pilipino. Nais niyang maka-angat sa rankings at makakuha ng laban para sa kampeonato kapag natalo niya ang Tanzanian sa 10-round match nila.

Samantala, magpapakitang-gilas din si Jeo Santisima, isang discovery ng pamosong ALA Boxing gym na lumalaban sa super bantamweight division. Sasabak siya bago ang salpukan nina Magsayo at Nampepeche. Mayroong 12-2 record si Santisima na pinasarap ng 11 na knockout at gusto niyang makaharap ang malalakas sa kanyang dibisyon kapag napatulog niya ang Indonesian na si Master Suro (11-8-1).

Magiging makamandag kaya ang tuklaw ng ‘Ahas’ laban kay Nantapech? Huwag palampasin ang “Pinoy Pride 40: Domination” ngayong Linggo (April 30) sa ABS-CBN ng 3:30pm at sa S+A ng 8pm sa isang primetime telecast ng fightcard na gaganpin sa Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino.
