MANILA, Philippines – Former world champion “Marvelous” Marvin Sonsona continues his comeback with another bout in February.

Sonsona, who briefly held the WBO super flyweight title, is scheduled to fight Carlos “El Flaco” Fulgencio at the Hoops Dome in Lapulapu City on February 4, according to Philboxing.com.

Sonsona ended a 20-month hiatus from boxing by scoring a unanimous decision victory over Mexican Carlos Jacobo last October.

The General Santos City native won the WBO title in 2009 by dominating Puerto Rico’s José “Carita” López.

He, however, lost the crown two months later after failing to make the weight limit for his title defense.
