World rated lightweight Al Sabaupan (13-0-1, 10 KOs) will return to ring action on Friday when he will clash with Arnel Donal (10-0-1, 4 KOs) on a star studded show at the Ynares Sports arena, Pasig City, Metro Manila, Philippines. IBF #14 Sabaupan’s best victory came when he scored a clear ten round decision over former WBA title challenger and current Mexican lightweight champion Josafat Perez.
Sabuapan’s manager Elmer Anuran said, “Sabaupan is ready for a tough fight against Arnel Donal. Donal has a good win over Jamie Barcelona who has had 87 fights. I am confident Sabuapan will be victorious and will capture the IBF lightweight title in 2011.”
