Nonito Donaire Faces Younger Ruben Hernandez in Ring Return Tomorrow

Will Nonito Donaire still show Flashes of Greatness?

10 months ago, Nonito Donaire left the boxing ring with a unanimous decision defeat against undefeated Jessie Magdaleno.

Fast forward today, Nonito Donaire now at 34 years old, with boxing record of 37 wins and 4 losses is back and he is set to face another young 24-year-old boxer from Mexico's Ruben Hernandez( 22W -2 L -1D) in the undercard of World Boxing Super Series in San Antonio, headlined by a WBSS Cruiserweight Quarterfinals bout betweenYunier Dorticos and Dmitry Kurdyashov.

In a recent interview, Nonito Donaire said that he is excited about his ring return and once to prove that he still got what it takes to be a world champion and part of his goal is to unify the 126 lb division title.

Now with a new promoter Ringstar, Nonito Donaire is thankful for the new opportunity and chance to showcase his skills. Nonito burst to the boxing scene when he upset and knocked out Vic Darchinyan with his patented counter left hook. He has collected a lot of career-defining bouts since then and have defeated great fighters, was able to continue his dominance and was even awarded fighter of the year.

Below are some of the accoloades on Nonito Donaire:

Nonito noted in a recent interview that he needed to be more mindful of his actions inside the ring and not be caught up in a brawl which he admitted was his tendency and maybe one of the reasons as to why he may also have lost to opponents like Nicholas Walters.

His opponent, Ruben Hernandes is enjoying a 7 fight winning streak and he is determined to put a stop on the streak to avoid being a stepping stone for the young boxer.
