Jerwin Ancajas: Moving Up and Eyeing the Win Column


PhilBoxing.com




Jerwin Ancajas knows what it takes to climb to the top and how to stay there a long time.

The man from Panabo, Davao del Norte was IBF junior-bantamweight champion from 2016 to 2022, and it would not be a stretch if he reclaims old glory at bantamweight.

Known as a boxer-puncher with excellent footwork, Ancajas sets up his left straight with a stinging right jab.

In his 38 fights, he has posted an outstanding record of 34 wins (22 KO’s), 3 losses, 2 draws, and has never been knocked out.

Said veteran manager-trainer Joven Jimenez by email: “It has been a hard journey back into contention. We hope to show a new and well-conditioned ‘Pretty Boy’ as we make the best of what Sir Sean Gibbons has laid out for us. We are grateful for another shot.”

Ancajas seems ready to move on from his successive losses to Fernando “Pumita” Martinez of Argentina; this according to the MP Promotions President who is plotting Team Ancajas’ redemption tour.

Said Sean Gibbons: “Jerwin has outgrown the junior-bantamweight division…Ancajas acquitted himself by giving his all against Fernando Daniel Martinez…Here’s to bigger and better things in one of boxing’s glamor divisions.”

Mr. Gibbons indicated that Saturday’s opponent, Wilner Soto of Colombia is no push-over. He sports a respectable record of 22 wins(12 KO), 12 losses (5 by KO, 0 draw. Soto is aggressive and will be a good barometer for Ancajas’ future success.

“Ancajas has trained hard for 5 months at the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood and Knucklehead Gym in Las Vegas. He has kept his weight in check, and sparred the best— Jonas Sultan, Jade Bornea, and Marlon Tapales, to name a few,” Mr. Gibbons stated.
