Ancajas Makes US Debut

Filipino fireball Jerwin "Pretty Boy" Ancajas will make his U.S. debut, Saturday, February 3, at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, TX.

A protégé of Filipino icon Senator Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao, and promoted by Top Rank®, MP Promotions and Joven Sports, Ancajas (26-1-1, 18 KOs), of Cavite City, Cavite, Philippines, will be making the fourth defense of his IBFjunior bantamweight title against Top-10 contender Israel Gonzalez(20-1, 8 KOs), of Cabo San Lucas, México. The Ancajas - Gonzalez world championship fight will be the co-main event to the Gilberto "Zurdo" Ramirez -Habib "Wild Hurricane" Ahmed WBO super middleweight title.


"I have had the opportunity to be ringside for Jerwin’s fights in Australia and in Macau and I see a lot of similarities to his co-promoter Manny Pacquiao," said Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum. "Jerwin has a killer instinct inside the ring and he is a great finisher. Just look at his record. Jerwin has only gone the distance once in his last 14 fights!"
