Donnie Nietes wants big names at 112 and 115

Flyweight champion Donnie Nietes is looking for the biggest possible fights.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

On his performance against Juan Carlos Reveco

“I’m happy because I had a sensational knockout.”

“I think it was a perfect 10.”

On what’s next

“Anybody. I just want to fight the big names out there. Whichever champion is going to come forward, I want the fight.”

“Whatever’s out there. Right now, I want to fight the big names out there. If there’s a huge fight at 112, I’ll stay at 112. If there’s a unification bout at 112. But if the big names are at super flyweight, I’ll move up to 115.”

“[I want to fight] Chocolatito and whomever wins between Sor Rungvisai and Estrada.”

On the finish to his win over Reveco

“When I watched him going to his seat, he was groggy, and I wanted to finish him the next round.”

On fighting on HBO for the first time

“I knew it was a huge fight. I prepared hard. I know people are always rooting for a knockout. It’s a good thing, I’m very happy.”

On facing Jerwin Ancajas

“Right now, my stablemate Jonas Sultan is the mandatory to fight Jerwin Ancajas. So right now I’m not looking at Ancajas.”
