Ancajas sees no problem fighting Sultan

Jerwin Ancajas, the current toast of Philippine boxing, doesn’t see any problem defending his International Boxing Federation (IBF) super-flyweight title against mandatory challenger Jonas Sultan.

Neither does Sultan, whose camp is looking forward to challenging the IBF 115-lb titlist in an all-Filipino encounter being proposed by Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum.

“We’ll be ready for him (Sultan),” said Ancajas upon his arrival from the US on Wednesday following his tenth-round stoppage of Israel Gonzalez of Mexico in Corpus Christi, Texas.

ALA Boxing-Cebu president Michael Aldeguer, chief handler and promoter of Sultan, said initial talks have started with Ancajas’ US representative Sean Gibbons.

Sultan (14-3 with nine KOs) earned the mandatory challenger status after beating fellow Filipino and ex-world champion Johnreil Casimero last year in a title eliminator.
