🇵🇭 DONNIE NIETES: “I’m so happy and excited that finally for the first time since 2018 I will be able to get back in the ring and fight. This is the best time to come back with the guidance of D4G Promotions and MTK Global.
“Pablo is a good guy and he knows how to fight, but this will be an exciting performance from me. The pandemic and COVID doesn’t hinder my dreams to continue in boxing. I have been given this opportunity and I want to win it and then fight the world champions in the super-flyweight division.”
🇨🇴 PABLO CARRILLO: “I’m excited to fight in Dubai and excited to be fighting with such a great champion, but I am a champion too. I have a lot of experience with previous fighters and champions, and that has prepared me not only for this fight, but to remain motivated and hungry in my career.
“First and foremost I am very grateful for the opportunity to come here, so thank you to the sponsors and organizers. I will produce a good fight for everybody.”
D4G PROMOTIONS PROMOTER AHMED A SEDDIQI: “A lot of hard work has been put into this to bring the world title fight to Dubai. For the past two years, we have been working on smaller shows, and now we are here with a huge event.
“I am proud, and it is an important fight for the country and for the region to help to develop the sport at the highest level. The plan is to continue growing the sport here as much as we can.
“Everything is a work in progress and we are looking for the best talent in the region, it will take time, but we will get there. This is just the beginning. Dubai is a great city with a lot of different nationalities, and there will be a lot of eyes on Dubai this weekend.
“People call Dubai the Las Vegas of the Middle East. We have the perfect infrastructure, the best hotels, and restaurants, and the only thing we were missing is big sporting events, well now they are here.
“This is a really good card full of fantastic fights, and the main event between Jamel Herring and Carl Frampton has been one year in the making. We can’t wait.”
