Weigh-ins for Donnie Nietes fights tend to be little more than photo opportunities, as his metronomic consistency through his 14-year career has kept him at or under the weight limits before his fights. So when it was initially announced that Nietes had weighed slightly over the flyweight limit of 112.4 pounds on Friday, April 28, there was a sense of disbelief.
Nietes has been excellent for so long now, his victories must seem preordained in the eyes of many. Though he lacks the recognition of other Filipino greats like Manny Pacquiao and Nonito Donaire, Nietes has quietly gone about his craft, dominating opponents in his home country and performing well in the occasional foray abroad.
