Ryan Songalia of ESPN5 wrote that Jimmy Paypa has trained with Sultan at the ALA Gym and was once his sparring partner when he was a junior featherweight. Before that, when he trained at the Omega Gym, Paypa fought Ancajas in the IBF champ's third pro fight in 2009. In that encounter, Ancajas was 2-0 and Paypa was 1-0, and despite being outweighed by 3.5 pounds at 107.5, Ancajas emerged from the fight with a majority decision victory.

* * *

"I still remember how Jerwin beat me on that fight. I think Jerwin improved a lot since we fought, especially his speed," said Paypa, who is now a junior lightweight. Paypa cautions Sultan that Ancajas has more speed, skill and power than Sultan but that Sultan's consistent squeezing and willpower could be the right technique to defeat Ancajas.

* * *

"I just tell [Sultan] that if he wants to win this fight he must do the first move always and don't let Jerwin get in to position because Jerwin is better than him in case of proper form and style," said Paypa as quoted by ESPN5. "But I also know Jonas Sultan; he is a very hardworking boxer and indestructible opponent. He always gives all his best in every fight, especially now for a world championship."

* * *

Paypa appreciates what Sultan has done in his practices. "I saw Jonas' sparring sessions for this fight and I can say that he is 100 percent ready for this fight because they studied a lot about Jerwin," said Paypa.

* * *

Three-division champion Donnie Nietes said he had known that Sultan was a fighter who is better than his record for years since they had been sparring together. "Sultan has a great chance to win," said Nietes. "Jonas is a tough opponent; you cannot easily read his moves."

* * *

But Nietes gave tribute to the exploits of Ancajas. "Jerwin is on the level of [Manny] Pacquiao and Nonito [Donaire Jr.]," said Nietes.
