Apparently, or maybe obviously, it is possible to be both a lover and a fighter. Introducing Filipino Southpaw Glenn “Lover Boy” Suminguit!
Suminguit challenged for the Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) World Bantamweight title in April of 2012, on a huge promotion in Hong Kong.
After a valiant effort, he lost a unanimous decision to fellow countryman Fernando Lumacad (25-3-3) at the Kawloon Bay International Trade & Exhibition Centre.
Before that he had compiled a 12-1 (7) record, fighting solely in his home country, while Lumacad had boxed abroad several times and faced much bigger names.
Back on home soil he won his next seven bouts, and captured the national Philippines title in 2016 with an impressive third round stoppage of Alvin Bais (15-6-1).
In his first fight after that he was upset by Jason Egera (21-17-1), a capable but limited journeyman who had lost his last seven.
After two rebound victories, including a defense of his national title, Suminguit travelled abroad for the second time in his career in October of 2018.
This time he was stopped in the fifth round in Tokyo by local puncher Hiroaki Teshigawara (17-2-2) in a fight for the OPBF Super Bantamweight belt.
This has so far been his last fight, but at only thirty-two a comeback cant be ruled out. In the meantime, Suminguit, 21-4 (11), is currently working as a trainer out of the famous Elorde Gym.
