Donnie “Ahas” Nietes Crushes Mexican Armando Vazquez in 1 Round

Filipino champion Donnie “Ahas” Nietes made a smashing debut as a junior flyweight by knocking out Mexico’s Armando Vazquez in just 1 round at the La Salle Coliseum in Bacolod City on Saturday.

Nietes tagged Vazquez with a crushing right hook, knocking down the Mexican during the main event of Pinoy Pride 5, according to a report.

Vasquez failed to make the count, prompting referee Bruce McTavish to award Nietes the knockout victory 2:26 into the opening round.

Before landing that knockout punch, Nietes had to survive a stunning left hand he received from Vazquez.

With the feat, Nietes improved his record at 28-1-3 scoring 16 KOs. Vasquez, on the other hand, settled at 18-6.

Meanwhile, reigning World Boxing Organization (WBO) minimumweight champ Nietes is poised to face the winner of the WBO interim junior flyweight title bout between Jesus Geles and Ramon Garcia Hirales for his next fight.
