Donnie Nietes wants big names at 112 and 115

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

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.”
