Prediction,

I can't wait for this 112/115 pack of boxing fights.
This is one of 4 great fights on this bill!

Both these guys have a bundle of experience, they are 34-35, quite old, very old in fact for flyweights, but combined, they have had 87 bouts, between them, they have 79 wins. These guys have both been in a lot of world title fights.

I think these guys have a similar amount of power, and both competed at 108, in world title contention.

Nietes is the champion, I believe he is a slight favourite, but it is hard to predict a winner of this fight.

Based on recent years, where the fighters are in their careers, ypu can make a case Nietes will win, and I think he could stop Reveco. In my opinion, if Nietes is going to win, the difference really, isn't so much that Nietes is the only one with a title at this current time, but more that he has won all of his last 6 fights, Reveco has lost a couple in his last 6.

Reveco has a great chance, he has plenty of experience at world level, he isn't at an age disadvantage, and he has won a few in a row, it won't be a surprise if he pulls out what I assume would be a slight upset.

The size factor is very interesting in this fight, Nietes is taller, which suggests he's naturally bigger, but he has competed at 105 plenty of times, he hasn't competed at 112 many times, and only twice in recent years. Reveco has competed at 108, but never 105, and he has competed at 112, many, many times, roughly three quarters of the fights he's had have been fought at 112.

I think it will be a battle, bloody, gusty, and both guys having plenty of success, both inflicting damage on each other, but I think in the late rounds, it will be Reveco who comes on stronger, finds it in the tank to swing the fight in his favour.

I think Reveco will pull off the slight upset, win the title, but I'm only 55% sure, Nietes could well win this.

I think if this was a light flyweight fight, Nietes would win, but on account of the fact that it is a flyweight contest, the more adapted, experienced flyweight will get the win.

What do you think of the rumor that Nietes may fight Chocolatito for the vacant WBO Super Flyweight Title if he wins?

Champion97's picture

I wouldn't advise that if I was from the Philippines, if I was from Nicaragua, I would be confident Gonzalez could dominate that. Nietes has not fought 112 many times at all, 4 times, twice in recent years, he had quite a lot of fights at 105 earlier in his career, if he moves up to 115, that's not going to end well for him, 10 lbs is a heck of a lot of weight for small fighters. What do you think?

Gold's picture

I agree, Nietes is not really accustomed to 112 let alone 115. It's not a good weight for Chocolatito either but he is at least more accustomed to it. Chocolatito wouldn't get pushed around by Nietes like he did by Rungvisai. Nietes is not a big puncher either so I think that is especially a good fight for Chocolatito in case his chin got cracked. I just worry about Chocolatito's confidence and mentality, he went into the second fight with the same mentality that Kovalev did after the first Ward fight thinking he was wronged and got stopped like Kovalev did. Overall, I think it's probably Chocolatito's best opportunity to get a world title again as I wouldn't make him the favorite versus any of the three current title holders.

To be honest, I think Gonzalez should hang up the gloves, he has had what?, 50 fights?
At this weight, I think fighters have to make the most out of their twenties. My question is, if being in a 12 round, very, very bloody, brutal punishing war which he loses, and then being sparked in the rematch after he has already been considered at the best boxer in the world in the past isn't the time to retire, when is? If he fought Inoue, Rungvisai again, he would lose I think, and of he beat Nietes, then what?, what that would be less success than he has already had in his career.

Rungvisai vs Estrada who you got?

Gold's picture

Yeah, Gonzalez has a boatload of miles on him and age isn't on his side. I agree he should retire but I think Nietes for a vacant title is a decent way to go out if he wins. He definitely shouldn't fight on if he wins though. He just has too many miles on him. I favor Rungvisai slightly because of his size and grinding pressure but I want to watch a little more of Rungvisai (the tech draw versus Cuadras) and of Estrada (the close decision versus Chocolatito) before I make a real judgment. Real shame we didn't get to see any of them versus Inoue.

Champion97's picture

Rungvisai's power is unreal, relative to his own weight class, he might be one the biggest punchers out there.

Was not expecting that, second time I've been very, very wrong about a fight tonight!
Great performance and great win for Nietes, I wonder if the Gonzalez fight will go ahead now. I think Reveco would be wise to retire now, he's been a world champion, he's had a great career, but he's also had a long, gruelling career, 34 is very old for a flyweight, and based on this fight, there is no reason to continue boxing, he has nothing to prove, because he has a achieved a lot in his career.

Boxing Purist's picture

Master craftsmen Nietes is, I very much agreed with Max Kellerman that Nietes subtleties in a lot of his game are very similar to Andre Ward. I think I might slightly favor Nietes over Gonzalez with they fought, remember Chocolatito should have stopped at 112 himself, and from what we seen here, Donnie appears to have carried his power up a little better that it appears Chocolatito has. We'll see but I think it would be a fantastic fight, for boxing fans.

I think Gonzalez, but there is a good argument for either.
