AJ Banal was impressive on his comeback fight after suffering his first defeat last June.

He displayed ring generalship to sneak bombs against his Indonesian opponent Nouldy Manakane. The game Manakane fought like a warrior but being a warrior alone couldn't help him to penetrate the improved defense of Banal.

Banal crushed Manakane in the 4th round with 1-2 combinations and was helpless on the canvass which the referee halted the fight. AJ Banal improved to 18 wins, 1 loss & 1 draw while Manakane fell to 17-8-1.
