Ready to rumble

  Jerwin Ancajas, the reigning IBF world bantamweight champion, is not a big fan of the rambunctious fight-week hype.   On the day he came face-to-face against challenger Alejandro Santiago of Mexico, Ancajas greeted him with a warmth more suited for old friends than enemies scheduled for a vicious square off in the ring.   They once again crossed paths Wednesday in the final presser with nary an incident that promoters could use to fuel interest in the fight.   But that doesn't mean there won't be fireworks when Ancajas (30-1-1 with 20 knockouts) stakes his two-year-old belt against the dangerous Santiago on Saturday morning (Manila time), at...Keep on reading: Ready to rumble.....»»

8-4 in rounds: Peñalosa believes Ancajas won fight vs Santiago

Filipino boxing champion Jerwin Ancajas won four more rounds than Mexican challenger Alejandro Santiago instead of settling for a split draw. That's how Gerry Pealosa, a former two-division titleholder, would've scored the fight. "Jerwin won that fight," Pealosa told INQUIRER.net in Filipino on Saturday. "I had Jerwin taking eight rounds to four so it should be 116-112." One judge scored it 116-112 for Ancajas but the others saw it differently, 118-111 for Santiago and 114-114. But that's not to take anything away from Santiago, whom Pealosa said surprised him after initially thinking that the bout would be just a walk in the park for Ancajas.

Jerwin Ancajas retains IBF title after Split Draw

Filipino IBF Super Flyweight World Champion Jerwin "Pretty Boy" Ancajas holds on to his title after figuring in a Split Draw against Mexican Alejandro Santiago Barrios at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, Friday evening (Saturday morning, Manila time).  A back-forth-battle throughout the course of twelve rounds, the usually-methodic Ancajas found it difficult to impose his will against the shifty Barrios.  The smaller challenger brought the fight to the defending champion, challenging Ancajas more than anyone has during the Pinoy's title reign.  At the end of the action-packed affair, one judge saw it in 116-112 in favor of the champion, while another saw it 118-110 in favor of the challenger.  The third judge scored it a 114-114 draw.  This is the second Filipino fighter to battle to a draw in the last month, with Donnie Nietes and Aston Palicte battling to a Split Draw in their WBO Super Flyweight title contest back in early September.  Earlier in the card, former world title challenge Genesis Servania made quick work of Mexican opponent Carlos Carlson via third round KO. .....»»

Reigning IBF Super Flyweight world champion Jerwin "Pretty Boy" Ancajas successfully made weight for his upcoming title defense against Mexican Alejandro Santiago Barrios on Thursday at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California (Friday in the Philippines).  The 26-year old Ancajas, a native of Panabo, Davao del Norte, tipped the scales at 114.2 pounds. Tijuana's Barrios on the other hand, came in at 114.6 pounds.  With both competitors under the 115 pound super flyweight limit, the title match is good to go.  It will be Ancajas' sixth defense of the IBF's 115-pound crown. His last defense came in May of this year against compatriot Jonas "Zorro" Sultan, wherein Ancajas used his reach and timing to cruise to a unanimous decision victory.  The 22-year old Barrios, meanwhile, is unbeaten in his last eleven bouts, and will be challenging for the title for the first time in his career.

ONE Championship: Rene Catalan still won t fight a fellow Filipino, not even for a championship

Veteran martial artist and ONE Championship strawweight contender Rene Catalan is standing his ground with regards to his statement about not wanting to fight a fellow Filipino.  In an interview with ONE Championship back in August, the former Asian Games Gold Medalist in Wushu stated that he'd rather not fight a fellow Filipino, regardless of the stakes.  Back then, Catalan and fellow pinoy strawweight contender Joshua Pacio were thought to be on a collision course, with both having put together respective winning streaks.  "I’d rather not face a fellow Filipino.” said Catalan. “Since 2003, I’ve been representing for the Philippines, and until now, I try to avoid having to compete against one of my countrymen.”  Both Catalan and Pacio were coming off impressive wins in Manila, but it was Pacio who was rewared the opportunity for the championship. The Team Lakay strawweight standout will challenge reigning ONE Championship Strawweight World Champion Yoshitaka Naito at ONE: Conquest of Heroes in Jakarta, Indonesia.  When asked about the possiblity of having to face Pacio with a world title on the line, Catalan's answer didn't change.  "Ibibigay ko na siguro kay Joshua 'yun," the 39-year old said. "Kung manalo siya, maraming foreigner na mag-hahabol sa kanya at sa belt. Andiyan si Hayato Suzuki, si Alex Silva, marami."  Catalan is also in Jakarta, cornering prized pupil Jomary Torres as she takes on Indonesia's own Priscilla Hertati Lumban Gaol.  "Naniniwala ako na may time din ako." he added.  Catalan even hinted at playing gatekeeper for Pacio, should the Baguio-based fighter pull off a victory on Saturday night.  "Pwedeng ako yung kalabanin nung mga ibang challenger, pero hindi talaga natin kakalabanin yung kababayan natin."  "Yung kapwa natin Pilipino, tutulungan dapat natin." he added.  Catalan was slated to meet Japanese submission specialist Hayato Suzuki at ONE's return to Bangkok in October, but had to pull out due to an ankle injury.  Taking Catalan's place against Suzuki will be his younger brother Robin.  Before anything else of course, Pacio will have to take care of business against Naito.  Saturday's main event will be a rematch of their 2016 title bout which saw Naito defeat Pacio in the third round via submission.    Catch ONE Championship: Conquest of Heroes on Saturday, September 22nd at 10:30 PM LIVE on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23! .....»»
