MANILA, Philippines – Former four-division world champion Nonito Donaire Jr. is raring to prove that he still has a lot left in the tank as he shoots for a comeback victory against Mexican Ruben Hernandez at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas on Saturday (Sunday Manila time).

The 34-year-old Donaire will take on Hernandez in a 12-round featherweight bout, marking the Filipino-American’s return to the 126-pound division.

“I’m ready to return to the ring and show that I still have what it takes to be a world champion and face the best in this sport,” said Donaire (37-4, with 24 KOs), who is coming off a 10-month layoff.

 The San Leandro, California-based boxer is confident of a victory over Hernandez that he is already looking forward to bigger fights in the weight class.

“After this fight, I’m coming for all of the featherweight champions and to prove I’m the best in the division,” he added.
