PHOTOS: Donnie Nietes, Aston Palicte meet the press at media workout
Donnie Nietes and Aston Palicte broke a sweat in front of the assembled press on Wednesday, August 29, just under two weeks before they face off for the vacant WBO junior bantamweight title on the SuperFly 3 card.
Nietes (41-4-4, 23 knockouts) is gunning for a world title in his fourth weight class, while Palicte (24-2, 20 KOs) is challenging for a major belt for the first time.
The fight, which will be part of the HBO broadcast of the SuperFly 3 card, takes place September 8 at The Forum in Inglewood, California, and will be the second all-Filipino world title fight this year.
