HORRIBLE JUDGING RELEGATES DONNIE NIETES TO A DRAW
By Scott Shaffer

Donnie Nietes D12 Aston Palicte... With the vacant WBO 115-pound title at stake, Donnie Nietes outboxed a younger, much taller Aston Palicte in an all-Filippino match-up in Inglewood, California but, unfortunately for him, the bout was unjustly scored a draw. The 36 year-old Nietes fought like a mini-Bernard Hopkins, brilliantly conserving his energy for the sequences when it mattered most. In the twelfth, Nietes stepped up his activity rate and had perhaps his best round of the fight. Official scores were an incompetent 116-112 for Palicte, a surprising 114-114 and 118-110 Nietes. Compubox numbers reflected the judges' folly, as Nietes outlanded Palicte, 194 punches to 124. At least Nietes can still say he has not lost a fight since 2004.  The poor judging cost Nietes the chance to become the only boxer four-division champion from the Philippines other than Manny Pacquiao and Nonito Donaire. The WBO title became vacant when Japanese superstar Naoya Inoue moved up to bantamweight to fight in the World Boxing Super Series. It remains vacant, with the expectation of Nietes-Palicte II. source: hbo
