ANCAJAS FLIES TO IRE­LAND FOR CROWN DE­FENSE

Philippine Daily Inquirer - - SPORTS - —ROYLUARCA

Jer­win Ancajas con­tin­ues his quest for in­ter­na­tional ac­claim when he de­fends the In­ter­na­tional Box­ing Fed­er­a­tion crown against un­beaten Jamie Conlan in Belfast, Ire­land, on Nov. 18.

Though Conlan was im­pressed with Ancajas’ sev­en­round de­mo­li­tion of Ja­panese chal­lenger Teiru Ki­noshita in the chief sup­port of Manny Pac­quiao-Jeff Horn tus­sle in Bris­bane on July 2, the brawler is con­vinced he’d be able to beat the pride of Pan­abo City, Davao del Norte.

The 30-year-old Conlan, who holds a 19-0 record with 11 KOs, was at ring­side watch­ing Ancajas dur­ing that bout.

Ancajas (27-1-1, 18 knock­outs), who also won by stop­page over Mex­i­can Jose Al­fredo Ro­driguez in his first ti­tle de­fense last Jan. 29 in Ma­cau, is also deep in train­ing un­der the guid­ance of his man­ager and trainer Joven Jimenez.
