According to Nietes, he enjoyed the company of the cast of “TODA Max” and salutes comedians after realizing how difficult it is to make people laugh. He said that doing comedy is like boxing because delivering the lines should have a “punch” so it will hit and make a knockout moment.
He also invited “TODA Max” viewers to watch Pinoy Pride 14 this June where he will face Mexican Felipe Salguero.
Alongside Nietes, two Filipinos, Milan “Metodico” Melindo and Genesis “Azukal” Servania, will fight in the upcoming battle. Nietes will defend his WBO light-flyweight belt for the first time, while Melindo will try to take the vacant WBO intercontinental flyweight title by fighting against Colombian Jesus Gelez. On the other hand, Servania will give his everything in his fight against pressure fighter Genaro “Poblanito” Garcia for the vacant WBC International Silver Super Bantamweight title. Garcia was a no-show last March in Pinoy Pride XII against Rey “Boom-Boom” Bautista in Bohol but now there’s no stopping him.
Pinoy Pride 14 will be held in Resorts World Manila on June 2 (Saturday) and will be shown on ABS-CBN on June 3 (Sunday), 10:15 a.m. with encore telecasts on the same day on Studio 23, 1:30 p.m. and on Balls, June 8 (Friday), 4:30 p.m. Live Pay-Per-View on June 2 (Saturday) is available on Balls HD and on TFC (Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Milan, London, and Sydney).
