DAVAO CITY – Reigning International Boxing Federation (IBF) super flyweight champion Jerwin “Pretty Boy” Ancajas of Davao del Norte told boxing fans to “stay safe and we can overcome this global crisis” in the ongoing Covin-19 pandemic crisis.
Ancajas, 28 was one of the guest speakers in the 1st IBF Video Awards Ceremony held worldwide through the YouTube channel.
“To all boxing fans, stay safe and we can overcome this global crisis and boxing will be back soon,” said Ancajas.
Ancajas is currently training at the Cavite Survival Camp in Magallanes, Cavite.
He and his manager-trainer Joven Jimenez were supposed to go to the United States for a possible fight. But they were stopped due to the Covin-19 pandemic.
“Saka nila i-confirm ang laban kung makakarating kami sa US,” (They will soon confirm to us the fight after we will arrive in US) said Jimenez.
“Pero, nakahanda kami sa training” (But we are ready because of the training) said Jimenez.
Ancajas also runs 30 minutes since he is already 88 percent in condition.
He had 36 rounds of sparring sessions against undefeated super lightweight Daniel Lim (9W-0L, 2KO), flyweight John Mark Alimane (8W-1L-0D, 4KO) and unbeaten light flyweight Angelo Beltran (6W-0L, 4KO).
In his last and 8th title fight, Ancajas stopped Miguel Gonzales of Chile in the 6th round in Mexico last Dec. 7.
