In tonight’s boxing former Ring Magazine Fighter of the Year Nonito Donaire of The Philippines returns to action.
It’s being some journey for Donaire over the years who despite being in the latter part of his career, like his countryman Manny Pacquiao, has never shirked away from challenges.
Always looking to take on the best.
His last fight testament to that when he went to Japan to take on one of the best fighters in the world pound for pound.
Japanese sensation Naoya Inoue no less. In his backyard in Japan too.
‘The Monster’ Inoue won a unanimous decision that night in 2019.
Two years on a lot has changed in the world and Donaire at 38 looks to re-find his knockout form tonight against southpaw Frenchman Nordine Oubaali in Carson, California.
The fight will be for Oubaali’s WBC bantamweight world championship.
Here are some of Donaire’s greatest moments in the ring from HBO:
