Probellum has announced the promotional signing of four-weight world champion Donnie Nietes.
The Filipino icon has had a tremendous career, with Nietes (43-1-5, 23 knockouts) holding world titles at super-flyweight, flyweight, light-flyweight and minimumweight.
Nietes made his long-awaited return to the ring earlier this year, coming back from a near two-and-a-half year absence when he defeated Pablo Carrillo in Dubai, winning the vacant WBO International super-flyweight title in the process, and displaying the elite skills that have put him at the top of the sport for nearly two decades.
"It's such a great pleasure to get this promotional contract with Probellum," said Nietes. "I am so proud to be part of it, and I am looking forward to fighting again soon so that I can continue to show my boxing abilities and technique."
He now joins forces with Probellum, as he looks to once again become world champion and continue to do his country of the Philippines proud.
"We're pleased to welcome such an illustrious boxer like Donnie Nietes to the team," said Richard Schaefer, President of Probellum. "We have seen the lower weight classes finally receive the praise they deserve in recent years, and Donnie is a key part of that stacked super-flyweight division.
"He has already won world titles in four divisions, making him a true legend of the sport, and we're proud to now be working together as we look to help him claim world honors again in the near future."
