Ancajas: Overhand left did the trick vs Kinoshita

Although it didn't seem like it, world junior bantamweight king Jerwin "Pretty Boy" Ancajas said he had a hard time beating Japan's Teiru Kinoshita before retaining his crown on Sunday.

But fighting a rangy boxer wasn't easy, said Ancajas.

"Mahaba kasi ang kamay, hinaharangan niya 'yung jab ko," he told ABS-CBN News. "Alam niya na mahilig akong mag-jab, talagang pinag-aralan ako't pinahirapan."

The left-handed fighter from Panabo City is currently is one of the Philippines' more technical boxers.

Ancajas negated Kinoshita's longer reach by using an overhand left.
