Nietes open to moving up in weight if that’s where gold, glory are

Donnie Nietes is thankful for all the help he’s getting at the famed Wild Card Gym in Los Angeles, particularly from Freddie Roach.

“Si coach Freddie tumutulong din. May mga techniques siya na itinuro sa akin, which is the same na itinuro niya kay Manny (Pacquiao),” he told ABS-CBN News in a long-distance call.

Of course, there’s also help coming from Nietes' sparmate, former 2-division champion Brian Viloria.

Nietes and Viloria will be featured on 360 Promotions and HBO's Superfly 2 card at The Forum in nearby Inglewood on February 24.

“Nakapag-spar rin tayo with Brian ng 6 to 8 rounds. Napakagandang experience. Nagpalitan kami kami ng nalalaman sa ring,” said Nietes, who believes an opportunity to fight in the US couldn't have happened if not for Pacquiao blazing the trail.
