Donnie Nietes' gallant effort on Saturday night against Francisco Rodriguez rewarded him with his eleventh consecutive title defence.
It also gave him an injured right hand in the process.
Speaking to Abac Cordero of the Phiilippine Star, ALA Promotions CEO Michael Aldeguer confirmed that Nietes did injure his hand during the fight.
“The right hand is swollen and we will have it x-rayed tomorrow,” said Aldeguer. “We are hoping there’s no fracture. He was supposed to be examined today but Donnie wanted to rest.”
Nietes himself says that he will be back in training in two to three weeks, depending on the medical assessment that will be done on his hand.
