“Nagpasalamat ra jud ko ni Sir Ala (Antonio Aldeguer) ug Sir Mike (Aldeguer) ug sa ALA Promotions nga naabot nako ang akong gipangandoy nga 4th division,” said Nietes. “Kung wala sila nga nag guide sa akong boxing career dili man sad ko makadawat ug mga awards ug ilabi na sa Elorde Awards.”

“Nagpasalamat sad ko sa mga Elorde Family, ug nila ni Sir Johnny Elorde ang CEO ug ang Board Chairman nga si maam Laura Elorde nga gitagaan ko ani nga Award of Distinction as a WBO World Super Flyweight champion nga gipildi nako si Kazuto Ioka last Dec. 31, sa Macau.”
