ANCAJAS CHALLENGED BY SULTAN'S REMARKS


PhilBoxing.com




LOS ANGELES --- IBF superflyweight world champion Jerwin Ancajas is not only excited in his fight against Jonas Sultan, but he is even more motivated to win.

And the motivations were hurled by his challenger himself.
Speaking before a handful of mediamen at his suite after training, Ancajas mentioned about being challenge by his opponent's remarks regarding their forthcoming showdown on May 26 in Fresno.

"Ako, talagang ginaganahan ako sa labang ito, kasi parang yung mga sinasabi ni Sultan na ganito, may knockout, nacha-challenge ako, yung sa mga weakness, nakikita ko sa kanya na pursigido siya na gusto talaga niya manalo, bawat pananalita niya, talagang confident siya sa mga sinasabi niya, talagang ako, ginawa kong motivation yung mga sinasabi niya, talagang ginaganahan ako, kaya nagpakundisyon ako nang todo," Ancajas explained.

The 26-year-old champion is also aware that his opponent will be more aggressive come fight night.

"Ang nakikita ko sa laban, siguro magiging aggressive siya, kasi 'yun nga, challenger siya, kailangan niya maging agresibo, kaya naghahanda kami, kaya kahit anong gagawin ni Sultan sa ring handa kami," he said.

"Ewan ko lang kung nagbago sila ng strategy, kung nagpokus ba sila sa speed, pero kasi yung mga nakita ko sa laban niya, medyo mabagal, nakikita rin 'yung mga suntok niya, pero 'yun nga hindi rin ako magkumpiyansa, baka nga nagbago rin sila ng strategy talaga," he added.

If there is one thing that Ancajas would not allow to happen - - it's the bout to become a close fight - - just like what Sultan had mentioned.

"Wala po akong masabi kung 'yun ang pananaw niya, pero, ita-try ko po na magiging convincing ang panalo ko, para hindi masabing close ang laban," Ancajas quipped.

And what if the fight is to be held tomorrow?

"Ahh, handang-handa na po ako," Ancajas confidently said. "'Yung pag-iisip ko nasa laban na. 'Yung knockout, maganda kung paunahan kami, kung sinong makauna maka-knockout Panginoon na ang bahala, pero ako, talagang ginaganahan ako sa labang ito," he ended.(VTRomano)
