The Story Behind Nietes Nickame Ahas

Since Donnie is a Filipino, born on the 12th of May 1982 to Josue Nietes and Renella Nietes in Murcia, Philippines, his nickname Ahas stands for a snake in Tagalog.

Nietes got his nickname when he was serving as a utility boy at Antonio Lopez Aldeguer, and one of his many duties was to clean the snake pit with five giant pythons.

No one in ALA would agree to clean the pit except for him; he was the only man with the guts to do the work, which everyone was scared of despite getting bitten several times.

However, to everyone’s surprise, the boxer befriended the snake, and he never got bitten again. Furthermore, when one of the snakes laid 11 eggs, of which only one survived, he took care of them, which he still does. Thus, that’s how he got the tag Ahas and used it as his ring name.
