The 39-year-old Donaire earlier scored the World Boxing Council (WBC) “Comeback of the Year” honor for becoming the oldest boxer in history to win a major bantamweight world title after defeating Frenchman Nordine Oubaali by knockout in the fourth round of their May 2021 bout.

The Filipino Flash successfully defended his world title and scored a knockout victory over compatriot Reymart Gaballo last December. Gaballo previously held the interim title in 2020.

The WBC bantamweight champion currently holds a 42-6 win-loss record with 28 knockouts.

The Filipino boxing star was announced the winner of the combined Twitter and YouTube polls with a total of 47.6% of votes from fans of the boxing series to beat out the likes of top professional boxers Stephen Fulton, Jr., Gervonta Davis, and David Benavidez on the online polls that determined the winner on January 1, 2022.
