MULING magdedepensa si International Boxing Federation (IBF) super flyweight champion Jerwin Ancajas sa Fresno, California sa ikalawang pagkakataon sa Setyembre 14 matapos ang matagumpay na mandatory defense kay Jonas Sultan noong Mayo 26, 2018.

Inihayag kamakalawa ng matchmaker na si Sean Gibbons sa press conference sa Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia na pagpipilian sina Alejandro Santiago Barrios ng Mexico at Miguel Gonzalez ng Chile sa posibleng makaharap ni Ancajas.

“Best exciting news Thursday that Jerwin will be returning to the US to fight September 14th on a special telecast of ESPN Boxing,” sabi ni Gibbons sa Philboxing.com. “It’s going to be held in one of our favorite places in Fresno, California where we had a great reception last time. This time we’re actually fighting in the co-feature, not the main event. We’re there with the local fighter Jose Ramirez who is going to defend his title. They’re looking at anywhere between 10,000 to 14,000 people.”

Itataya ng tubong California na si Ramirez ang kanyang WBC junior welterweight title kay Antonio Orozco ng Mexico.

“Jerwin made a very nice impression with the people of Fresno, We’re in a good area between Los Angeles and San Francisco. We haven’t selected the opponent but we’re going to find some very aggressive with his fists, not his head. The ones who come and rumble, the Mexican-type style,” paliwanag ni Gibbons.

Mas gusto ni Gibbons na makaharap ni Ancajas si Santiago na may bansag na “Peque” at tumabla sa kanyang huling laban kay Jose Martinez ng Puerto Rico para sa WBO NABO super flyweight title.

May record ang 22-anyos na si Santiago na 16-2-4 win-loss-draw na may 7 knockouts at kilala sa pagiging agresibo sa ibabaw ng ring pero hindi siya nakalista sa top 15 contender ng IBF.

May kartada namang 28 panalo, 1 talo na may 6 pagwawagi sa knockouts ang 28-anyos na si Gonzalez na kasalukuyang WBA Fedelatin super flyweight champion.

“He’s typical of the Mexicans. They come to rumble. I like Santiago because he’s a young guy, 22 years old, hungry. We’ll make a decision next week after we talk with Bob (Arum),” ani Gibbons. “The idea is to work his way through 2018. And then he has his eyes on the big prize. The Estradas, the Rungvisais, the unified belts. I can see him close the year out, absolutely.”

Binanggit ni Gibbons si dating flyweight champion Juan Francisco Estrada ng Mexico na tumalo sa mga Pilipinong dating kampeon din na sina Brian Viloria at Milan Melindo, at mandatory contender kay WBC super flyweight titlist champion Srisaket Sor Rungvisai ng Thailand.
