Can Funai stop the Pinoy “Pretty Boy?”
Rising Filipino boxing star Jerwin “Pretty Boy” Ancajas can’t wait for the bell to ring this Sunday (May 5) when he defends his IBF Superflyweight world title against Ryuichi Funai of Japan.
The match will air LIVE from the Stockton Arena in Stockton, California, USA on ABS-CBN S+A and S+A HD at 10 am, to mark the Pinoy “Pretty Boy’s” debut in the country’s premier sports channel.
“Malaking opportunity na maipalabas sa pinakamalaking network. Siguradong mapapanood na nila ang laban ko sa amin sa Davao,” shared Ancajas to ABS-CBN Sports during his press conference in his Cavite gym last April 11 for the announcement of the partnership between ABS-CBN Sports and his promoters.
Ancajas has been rampaging for the past two years, having defended his title successfully for six straight times. With a 30-1-2 record with 20 knockouts, the Filipino is banking once more on his skill and power to pull through Funai, who at age 33 has amassed a 31-7-0 record spiked with 22 knockouts.
The power-punching Japanese is also riding on a three-fight win streak via knockouts and looks to trade power shot with power shot with the Filipino rising star, who is coming off a competitive draw last September 28 against Alejandro Santiago Barrios of Mexico.
Don’t miss the S+A debut of one of Pinoy boxing’s exciting fighters Jerwin Ancajas as he stakes his IBF Superflyweight Belt against Japanese pugilist Ryuichi Funai this Sunday (May 5). Watch the fight LIVE on S+A and S+A HD from the Stockton Arena in Stockton, California, USA at 10 am.
