Former WBC Flyweight champion Sonny Boy Jaro (35-13-5, 25) has had one of the most bizarre careers in recent memory. He has been on both sides of upsets over the last 12 years and gone from being a "journeyman" to being the recognised "man" in his division.
Although it's been a roller-coaster ride for Jaro his career doesn't look like it's over yet and on March 21st he returns to the ring to take part in his 54th professional bout, a bout that will see him battling fellow Filipino Jovel Romasasa (10-12, 4).
Unfortunately for Jaro this bout is a big drop down from the heady heights of his career, including a stunning upset of Thai great Pongsaklek Wonjongkam back in 2012 and world title battles with Mexican pair Edgar Sosa and Giovani Segura.
As well as those world title bouts Jaro has actually had a real bad run in recent years and has lost 3 of his last 4, including a shock loss to the criminally under-rated Gerpaul Valero and a losses in Japan to Toshiyuki Igarashi and Hiroyuki Hisataka.
On paper this should be a mismatch and Jaro's power should see off his opponent pretty easily. With his inconsistencies however there is a potential chance for an upset and if it comes it could well be the end of Jaro's incredible career that has really involved a bit of everything through the years and been hugely fun to follow.
