Alex Sanchez To Make Return, Eyes Calderon Rematch

By Rey Colon

The former WBO champion at strawweight, Alex "El Nene" Sanchez (31-8-1, 21 KO's) is going to make one final run at the top. The 39-year-old boxer has been inactive since last December's TKO defeat to Glenn Donaire. Sanchez took that fight, at 112-pounds, after a near four year layoff.

He wants to return to 108-pounds on a December date in Florida and wants to get a rematch with Ivan Calderon at 105 - if Calderon defeats WBO champion Moises Fuentes on October 6th in Puerto Rico.

"I'm going to fight in December in Florida. I have to talk to my people. I would like to return at 108 pounds and can I squeeze under 105 if Calderon wins the title. I want to get that last chance. I'm not that heavy and I have energy," Sanchez said.

Sanchez needs to stay retired, and Caldi needs to hang em up too. Both of them have nothing left to give at this point.
