Conlan: Jerwin Ancajas is a Better Fighter Than Kal Yafai

Undefeated Irish Super-Flyweight will face one of the best fighters in his division when he challenges Jerwin Ancajas for the IBF World Title on November 18th in Belfast.

Speaking to RingTV, the 31-year-old has a clear respect for the Champion, believing him to be better than Birmingham’s Kal Yafai, who also holds a World Title.

“I do believe he’s better than Kal Yafai,” argued ‘The Mexican’. “I believe he is the second best in the division with [WBO Champion Naoya] Inoue being the best. I don’t think he’s the weakest Champion.”

“[Ancajas] is a great fighter. To be a World Champion in the Super-Flyweight division says something about you. It’s the toughest I’ve seen in the world at the moment.”

Despite acknowledging the prowess of his Filipino opponent, the Irishman is determined to succeed having been through extreme adversity in the ring before and has the Belfast crowd at his back this time.

“I’ve dealt with the hand in previous fights where I’ve been down and had to get up, been cut and can’t see for 2-3 rounds and been able to handle that environment where everything was crazy. It’s waters I’ve swam in, I’m very familiar with it,” Conlan added.

“[Ancajas] comes now to a hostile, volatile cauldron in Belfast. When he enters the arena with 10,000 Irishmen supporting their own, it’ll be a lot harder when 10,000 people are shouting.”

I'd probably favour Jerwin over Yafai. It'd be a close fight though
