Nietes shuts out Sosa in flyweight debut


Former junior flyweight champ Donnie Nietes made his debut at flyweight on Saturday night, earning a unanimous decision win over former fellow titlist Edgar Sosa at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

Nietes (39-1-4, 22 KOs) took command of the fight from the start and never let up, as he countered well and stunned Sosa on a number of occasions throughout the contest.  Sosa (52-10, 30 KOs), whose best years are clearly behind him, was too slow for Nietes and rarely had any answers for the Filipino’s attack.

Scores were 120-108 from all three judges for Nietes.
