Ancajas targeted by former world champ

MANILA, Philippines – Fresh off an impressive performance in his title defense last July 2, up-and-coming Filipino boxer Jerwin Ancajas is now the target of a former world champion.

The 25-year-old Ancajas holds the IBF super flyweight belt, and last weekend, he found a mandatory challenger in American Rau'Shee Warren, a former flyweight title-holder and Olympian.

Warren easily outpointed another ex-champion in McJoe Arroya, 118-110, 117-111, 117-111, to improve to 15-2 in his professional career and earn a shot at the Filipino.

"I feel really good at this weight," said Warren, who used to hold the WBO and IBO bantamweight belts, in an interview with Boxing Scene.

"Now, it's time for me to get a strap," he added. "I haven't been at this weight since the Olympics. I want to get these titles, and then go down to 112 pounds for another title."

"First, I want to take care of Jerwin Ancajas," he added.
