FOLLOWING a long layoff, Glenn Donaire, the older brother of Filipino superstar Nonito Donaire Jr., stages his ring comeback in the US this Saturday.
According to a report posted at Philboxing.com, Glenn, who hasn't fought for over three years, is facing 38-year-old former world champion Alex Sanchez for the vacant World Boxing Council Latino flyweight crown at the Kissimmee Civic Center in Kissimmee, Florida.
Glenn's last fight was in 2008 against then International Boxing Federation light flyweight champion Ulises Solis. The 31-year-old Filipino-American fighter was beaten by Solis via a 12-round unanimous decision.
Glenn has a record of 17-4-1 with nine knockouts and has held the North American Boxing Association, World Boxing Organization (WBO) NABO and WBO Asia-Pacific flyweight titles. He has fought the likes of renowned boxers like Solis, Vic
Darchinyan and now-retired Z Gorres.
Sanchez, on the other hand, is 31-7-1 with 21 knockouts and once held the WBO mini-flyweight crown.
