IBF Super Flyweight champ Ancajas, unstoppable now: Mitra

Jerwin Ancajas with President Duterte

The Games and Amusements Board (GAB) toasted Jerwin ‘Pretty Boy’ Ancajas for successfully defending his IBF Super Flyweight belt in Belfast against hometown favorite and then undefeated James Conlan last month.

“Ancajas is unstoppable at this point. Hard work and discipline pushes Jerwin to string victories against strong contenders,” GAB Chairman Abraham Kahlil “Baham” B. Mitra said. With GAB Commissioners Eduard Trinidad and Mar Masanguid, who are both Davaoeños, Baham Mitra presented Ancajas to President Rodrigo Duterte yesterday.

Ancajas’ victory in Belfast, Northern Ireland over former undefeated Irish contender Jamie Conlan by TKO in the 6th Round is Pretty Boy Jerwin’s third successful defence of the IBF World Super Flyweight belt. He now has a record of 28 wins, of which 19 were by Knock Outs, one draw and only one loss.

In Australia, Pretty Boy Jerwin also just very recently won handily against a world-rated Japanese fighter under the fight card of Sen. Manny Pacquiao, Chairman Mitra elaborated.

“The GAB looks forward to more victories by Filipino boxers like this reunion of fellow Davaoeños Pretty Boy Jerwin, President Duterte, our GAB Commissioners and Special Assistant to the President Bong Go. The GAB boxing commission and staff work hard to  deliver support to our professional boxers as mandated,” Mitra added.

“We’ll double our efforts so that there will always be fellow Filipinos who’ll bring home pride and glory as the most competitive boxers worldwide in all divisions where they qualify,” said Mitra. The GAB was adjudged the Best Boxing Commission recently by the World Boxing Council in Azerbaijan.

“President Duterte himself is a true fan and attends fights featuring Filipinos. Ancajas’ road to Malacañang brings personal pride to the President. The courtesy call highlights President Duterte’s personal recognition of a fellow Davaoeño’s contribution to Philippine boxing. Jerwin’s visit to Malacañang breaks the nostalgia of Heroes Hall for the glory days of Filipino boxing.”

Jerwin Ancajas Too Much for Jamie Conlan as Referee Put a Halt to the Contest in Round 6

There is no need for Jamie Conlan to continue to get punished by the obviously quicker and better Jerwin Ancajas as the referee stopped the fight after seeing six rounds of domination from the Filipino. 
In round six, Ancajas unleased a glancing right hook that landed on the side of the head of Conlan and dropped him for good.
Start of round 1, Irish fans chants in support for homeboy Conlan as the previously undefeated fighter gets a boost from the home crowd in Belfast, Ireland.  But at 1:19 of the round, to the surprise of the crowd, Jamie Conlan, suddenly took a knee in a delayed reaction to a punch that basically previewed what will happen in the fight.  Jerwin lands combination early, brave Conlan stays in there and exchanges.

Round 2, Ancajas continues to box with Conlan, utilizing jabs to initiate action. Conlan had his left eye bloodied as Ancajas piled up some punches and created more steam behind the loads of combination punches that he is unleashing. It was all Ancajas in the second round.
Round3,  Conlan got a small window of success with his counter but not enough as two fighters seemed to relax a bit in the early minutes of round 3. The last minute of the round is where Ancajas suddenly put the pedal to the metal as he was tearing shots after shots, including body shots that crumbled Conlan to the ground. Conlan stood up but Ancajas returned back to work right away and poured in another set of body shots until the bell rang. Conlan Survived round 3. 
Round 4, Ancajas continued to be aggressive yet methodical with his combinations as he slowly chopped Conlan to the face and the body. Conlan looked as if he is ready to give up as Ancajas relentlessly pressured Conlan until the end of the round. Round four was punctuated with a left straight to the face to Conlan that put this Irish down again for the 3rd time of the fight.

Round 5. At this stage, Jerwin has gained a lot of confidence as he continued the dominance while Conlan seemed to look unsure and is still finding the right formula to move Ancajas who seemed unaffected with punches thrown by Conlan. Irish crowd continues to support their man all throughout the fight. In this round, Jerwin Ancajas was deducted one point for a low blow.
Round 6. Jerwin continuous his relentless assaults with head combinations that drop Conlan again for the last time. Although Conlan gingerly got up, the referee stepped in and declared the fight over. It was total domination by the champ and the referee made the decision to finally halt the fight.
Still the IBF Super flyweight champion of the world  Jerwin Pretty Boy Ancajas. 
Jerwin now improves his record to 28 W, 1 L, 1 D.
Right after the fight, Jerwin thanked everyone on social media. 

Maraming salamat po una kay god na nag bigay ng lakas at panalo sa laban ko at sa mga tao pong nag dasal sa laban maraming2 salamat po..

Prediction: Jamie Conlan is Agressive But Jerwin Ancajas’ Power and Style Will Come Out on Top

Jerwin Ancajas Invades Belfast to defend his IBF World Super Flyweight title for the 3rd time against Irish Jamie Conlan

A win for Jerwin Ancajas will increase his stocks in boxing

There is no easy road since Jerwin captured the IBF World Superflyweight title.
It was just a little over a year ago when a young man from  Panabo City of the Philippines burst into the world boxing scene when he dropped visiting McJoe Aroyo of Puerto Rico in round 8 of their title fight in Taguig, Philippines.  
In front of a handful of spectators, Ancajas’ cruise to victory on his way to becoming the IBF World superflyweight title. The fight wasn’t as heavily advertised then but his fight moving forward has been the talk of the town and since being the champion, he has defended his belt in two different countries including against Jose Alfredo Rodriguez in Macao and Teiru Kinoshita in Brisbane, Australia. 
Now, boxing will take him to Belfast in Ireland to face Irish very own Jamie Conlan.
Jamie Conlan is the most imminent threat to Ancajas rise to success and with an undefeated record of 19 wins (11 KO), the “Iris Gatti or the Mexican” is looking to make history as he challenges for the world title in front of his home crowd in Belfast.  Conlan at 31 years old had a number of tough fights and maybe looking to impose his aggressiveness against a much more stylistic Jerwin Ancajas who is holding a record of 27 wins (18KO), 1 draw and 1 loss.

https://lap.lazada.com/banner/dynamic.php?banner_id=59f0ac16d324f&theme=2&p=3

Conlan who also had a tough life recalls how he had worked hard to be in the position to challenge for a top prize in boxing.  In an interview, Conlan mentioned how he almost gave up and that he had to work in a hospital to keep moving while training.  Conlan looks determined to dethrone the Filipino champ but is also respectful.
“I believe Jerwin Ancajas in a great fighter, I think he is second best in the division, first would be WBO Champion Naoya” – Jamie Conlan

Ancajas’ rise to the top or Conlan’s prize for determination

On November 18, at the SSE Arena in Belfast, two hard-hitting super flyweight will collide. 
One Filipino who is just starting to get international attention and one Irishman who is determined to make the most out of the opportunity in front of his home crowd.
We see a good calculated fight for Jerwin Ancajas as he shows off his boxing skills early coming in and out and picking right body combination which will force Conlan to be tentative. Conlan will try to be as technical as he can but will soon find out that Jerwin will have an advantage in that area. The Irishman will be forced to switch and fight more aggressively. 
Conlan will have some success as he presses for the fight but Jerwin, much younger yet much stronger would be able to counter the attacks in the later round as he once again picks and pops some shots to the head and body. Conlan who had never faced defeats in an effort to win a round may force the issue that may result in combination punches or a knockdown for Ancajas.  
On the other hand, Ancajas could be fighting with the most number of hits to his head and body as the Irishman continues his barrage of offense that would test the durability of Jerwin Ancajas.
Certainly, a great stylistic fight at hand and we see a potential referee stoppage for Ancajas in the late round as the Irishman Conlan will never back down in front of his cheering fans but his aggressiveness will be his downfall.
What do you think will happen to the fight?

Video: Chris Eubank Jr. Proved Too Much for Avni Yildirim, Devastating KO in 3

Eubank banked on his boxing skills and power to end streak of Yildirim

Chris Eubank jr vs Avni Yildirm
Hanns-Martin-Schleyer Halle, Stuttgart, Germany at the the super middleweight World Boxing Super Series Chris Eubank Jr face undefeated and confident fighter from Turkey Avni Yildrim in a heated match-up that was fueled with a lot of untoward incidents and trash talking. This rift can only be settled inside the ring as both fighters excited and ready to prove that they are the better fighter. 
Moments before the fight, as the referee provides instructions, the two fighters face each other with bad intentions as if they could not wait another second to exchange punches and as they walked back to the corner their gazes became more intense.

Round 1 for Eubank Jr.

Avni Yildirim banging his head with gloves as he shows he is all set for the fight and just seconds after the bell rang, he came running towards Eubank Jr. as if he wants to feast on his prey right away. Chris Eubank Jr, however, was composed and was able to escape the attacks of the undefeated Yildirim. 
Utilizing his jabs and his ring generalship Eubank Jr. was able to control the fight early. Punches to body and uppercuts to the head were connecting early although Yildirim doesn’t seem to be bothered until he over-committed on his aggression and got caught with an upper cut which dropped his knees to the canvas. It was counted as a knockdown as the referee pulled Yildirim in the corner for a mandatory count.

Round 2 for Eubank Jr.

Yildirim, motivated to get back at Chris Eubank Jr. after losing the first round with a knockdown, aggressively pushed forward as he exchange bombs against Eubank Jr. Yildrim forced his way inside and had his moment of success tagging Eubank Jr. but ultimately, the second round still belongs to Eubank Jr in our eyes as he, too connected a number of effective blows.

Round 3 Knockout by Eubank Jr.

Eubank Jr started with a combination of hard hooks and Yildirim responded with his own as the two fighters are heated up at this stage of the fight. Eubank Jr  went on to utilize his effective jabs again as he spaces the ring well waiting for Yildirim to attack and make a mistake. Yildirm on the other hand wants an inside brawl as he continues to close the gap that ultimately ended with the two fighters clinching against each other.
It is at the 1:24 minute mark of the 3rd round when everything went on a downward trend for Yildirim as Eubank Jr suddenly unleashes multiple combination which started with a right hook to the gut of Yildirim which landed flush and opened up the head to a combination of rabid punches that ultimately spell doomed for the former undefeated fighter.
Yildirim dropped head first after receiving two powerful combinations from the relentless attacks of Eubank Jr. At the same moment, Chris Eubank Jr stood in the background with his hands down and his his facial reaction says it all. Referee immediately came to the rescue and declared the fight over as he helped the woozy Yildirm get up gingerly to the canvas.

Chris Eubank Jr Wins via an impressive knockout in the 3rd round.

He awaits the winner of Jamie Cox and George Groves for the semi-finals of the International Boxing Organization World Super Middleweight Series.
I am here to dominate the tournament, I am sending a message to everybody that I am coming. – Chris Eubank Jr 
Chris Eubank jr. then continues his speech as he reveals his ideal opponent in George Groves in January of next year.

Chris Eubank Jr improves to (28 W – 1 L), while Avni Yildirim dropped to( 16W- 1L) Ending his winning streak at 16.

Oh yes! WBC is all in on the fun and could not resist creating a special belt for the momentous occasion that everyone would hate not to love. Of course you as a boxing fan and as an MMA fan would not miss this fight. The best of both worlds will collide this weekend and regardless of what happens, this event has already turned heads and created a lot of money in the process so it would be stupid for WBC not to cash in on this opportunity as well.
WBC had created a number of special belts in the past for major fights like this, so it is not new that WBC is the kind of sanctioning body that innovates and adapts to the trend. You may call them nuts but with millions of people watching this event, it is but wise to add more flavor to it.

 Malignaggi made it clear that the cause of the knock down was a push.

“I wanted to be part of this event, but I didn’t want to become the story and that’s what this has turned into,” Malignaggi told ESPN. “I won’t release any information about his game plan or what he’s working on — I wouldn’t do that. But this has become a fiasco. It’s a circus. And I do want that sparring video released. The UFC’s PI definitely has that video. I understand it can’t come out now, but Conor, if you have any balls, release what really happened.”

“There was a pushdown yesterday. Conor on the inside, he can get a little rough. He shoved me down, you know, but no knockdowns. Obviously, 12 rounds, you’re gonna see there’s a mark on my face. Very, very hard work for both of us. I was starting to get in a groove in the middle rounds, starting to land some good shots. Conor really came on strong in the end. It was back and forth.”

UFC Lightweight champion Conor McGregor hired Malignaggi last month as a sparring partner ahead of his fight with boxing superstar Conor McGregor on August 26th at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas Nevada.

Paulie Malignaggi Reacts to McGregor was KOd in Sparring: That was all B.S.

Former 2-division world champion and now boxing commentator Paulie Malignaggi reacts to rumors that Connor McGregor was KO’d in a boxing sparring.
“That was all B.S. stuff. I think when these reports first came out, he was just returning from a press tour in Europe. The person who was saying that, Jessie Vargas, that he saw Conor get knocked out. That was physically impossible. Conor arrived in Las Vegas that Saturday, it was 2-3 weeks ago. Saturday he arrived and that Sunday the interview with Jessie Vargas came out. He said Conor got knocked out, which is physically impossible unless Conor was flying 14 hours and then sparring the same day,” Malignaggi told The Rich Eisen Show.
Also, another thing is, we train at the UFC headquarters and its very private so nobody can come in. You are not going to get anybody out there who doesn’t belong in the gym.”

“Anybody who knows anything about boxing doesn’t give Conor McGregor a chance,” Froch told Sky Sports News. 
“I thoroughly expect Floyd Mayweather to win, but he’d better not let the world of boxing down. I hope he wins it for boxing but this is an amazing event and I can’t wait for it. McGregor’s got to land something, a punch, quite hard and hurtful early on to be within any chance but anyone who knows boxing isn’t giving him a chance. This is a Mission: Impossible.” 
“McGregor is 29 against a guy who is 40 – a little bit older than me – and he’s been retired for a couple of years. You really do ‘feel’ you’re retired, you become civilised and soft and you lose that fighting mentality. Floyd has brittle hands, so how is the training camp going to go? I am just looking for some positives for Conor here and Mayweather isn’t the Mayweather we know from two, three, four, five years ago when he was the best of the best. We are just going to have to wait and see.”
