#1 world ranked WBO Filipino contender Aston Palicte (25-2-1, 21KO) won via technical knockout over #2 ranked Jose Martinez (20-1-2, 13KO) of Puerto Rico. Palicte by letter of the law has now put himself in a position for a re-match against the reigning Champion & legend Donnie ‘Ahas’ Nietes, granted Nietes would want to take up the option if his plans of a unification opportunity were to fall through.

A match between two top-ranked Super-Flyweights, Filipino fighter Aston Palicte (24-2-1, 20KO) will test his merit against undefeated Puerto Rican promising contender Jose ‘Chiquiro’ Martinez (20-0-2, 13KO).
Both are ranked in the top-5 by the WBO, with Palicte at #2, and Martinez being ranked at the #4 slot.
Palicte is fresh off what was a dubious draw verdict against Donnie Nietes in which Nietes should have been the clear winner in the bout, however Palicte put up a good effort, and showed the world that he is a quality fighter.
Martinez has two draws on his record against solid contender Alejandro Santiago Barrios, and will look to put up an impressive win here to get consideration for a world title shot.
