Bible Belt, SC – Glenn “The Filipino Bomber” Donaire’s first defense of his WBC Latino Flyweight Title has been canceled.
In a text message, father/trainer Nonito Donaire Sr. informed that Glenn has injured his left knee a week ago while doing his morning run. Doctors told him to rest for 2 weeks and then resume activity like biking and swimming to heal his knee.
This development put the June 15 date against undefeated Daniel “El Alacran” Lozano of Bowling Green, Forida on hold. The fight was supposedly scheduled at the Civic Center of Kissimmee, FL where Glenn snatched the title last year against former world challenger Alex Sanchez of Puerto Rico via 8th round RTD.
