Jerwin Ancajas from the Philippines is scheduled for a head-to-head boxing game match the Mexican fighter Israel Gonzalez at 9:30 A.M. (PHI time) on February 4, 2018 live from Corpus Christi, Texas.

For the first time in his boxing career, Ancajas will be traveling to the United States to defend his IBF junior bantamweight title against Israel Gonzales a contender from Mexico.

Expectations are high for Ancajas especially from his fellow kababayans as he is being compared to the great and now serving as a Philippines Senator, Manny Pacquiao.

“It’s a blessing that I’m given the opportunity to sign with Top Rank and fight on ESPN,” Ancajas told Poncher. “I’m compared a lot to Sir Manny (Pacquiao) but he’s a legend and I’m just trying to do what he wants me to do. I’m fighting for my country and I hope to bring the championship back home.”

However, according to Las Vegas matchmaker Sean Gibbons, the Panabo City boxer native have a different style to beat his opponents but in some ways have similarity like Pacquiao.

“Manny’s a balls to the wall guy, he comes out throwing from the first bell,” said Gibbons. “Jerwin’s methodical, calculating. He breaks you down and doesn’t go for the quick knockout unless there’s a clear opening. He’s got skills and a heart like Manny.”

His trainer Joven Jimenez concurred to what Gibbons described about his fighter.

“If Jerwin finds a hole, he’ll follow through up to the end,” said Jimenez. “As he gained experience, he became more precise. Now he has accuracy, timing and resistance.”
