AFTER scoring a big win over Raul Yu of the ALA Boxing Gym, Jade Bornea will return to action in the 3rd GAB Philippine Boxing Convention on May 12 at the Waterfront Insular Hotel in Lanang, Davao City.

The Sanman Boxing Gym stalwart Jade and his twin brother Jake will be seeing action in the same card organized by the Games and Amusements Board and will be attended by the country’s boxing promoters, managers and ring officials.

“It is a great time to showcase the talents of the Bornea twins,” said Jim Claude Manangquil, CEO of Sanman Promotions.

Jade (7W-0L-4 KOs) will take on former Philippine Boxing Federation (PBF) light flyweight champion Jetly Purisima (21W-22L-4D-6KOs).

Jade is looking to sustain his momentum as he had just captured the IBF Youth super flyweight crown via a unanimous decision win over Yu last Feb. 26 at the Lagao Gym in Gensan.

Looking to get back on track is Jake (11-2-0, 5 KOs) as he will be facing again Renerio “Amazing” Arizala (13-6-1, 5 KOs) of the Jonathan Peñalosa Boxing Stable in Mandaluyong City for the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) Inter-Continental Super Flyweight title.

Jake, 21, has already beaten Arizala by unanimous decision in his first title defense of his WBO Asia Pacific Youth flyweight title last April 2, 2016 at the Oval Plaza in General Santos City.

“I will not take him lightly and I’m expecting a better Arizala this time” said Jake.

Jake is coming off a seventh-round technical knockout loss against Andrew Selby in their battle for the IBF Inter-Continental flyweight title last Nov.18 at the Wembley Arena in Wembley, London, United Kingdom.
