We've learned earlier today that the prestigious Ring Magazine will have their Light Flyweight title at the ready for this weekend's major contest between WBO Light Flyweight champion Donnie Nietes (32-1-4, 18) and WBO "interim" champion Moises Fuentes (19-1-1, 10).
According to ring Magazine Nietes is the #1 Light Flyweight on the planet whilst Fuentes is ranked #3. The only man separating the two is Japan's Kazuto Ioka, who will be making his Flyweight debut in less than 24 hours time.
Interestingly Ring have Nietes and Fuentes ranked higher than most other independent ranking organisations, including the TBRB, who have Nietes #3 and Fuentes #9, Boxrec, where Nietes is ranked #6 and Fuentes is #7 and Fightnews, where Nietes is #2 and Fuentes is #5.
The only independent ranking authority to side with Ring are the IWBR who have Nietes at #1 and Fuentes at #2
