Jerwin Ancajas vs. Alejandro Santiago Barrios in Play For Sept. 29

According to The Inquirer, Jerwin Ancajas will defend his International Boxing Federation (IBF) super flyweight crown against Alejandro Santiago Barrios of Mexico on September 29 in California.

According to the boxer's manager, Joven Jimenez, the tentative venue is in Oakland and the contest will be carried on ESPN+.

The contest will be the sixth world title defense for Ancajas, who last saw action back in May, when he won a twelve round unanimous decision over his Filipino countryman, Jonas Sultan. Their contest marked the first time in nearly a century that Filipinos vied for a world title.

Ancajas, who is co-promoted by Top Rank and Manny Pacquiao's MP Promotions, has a record of 30 wins one loss and one draw, with 20 wins by way of knockout.

Barrios (16-2-4, 7 KOs) will be fighting for the second time in the United States. Back in March, Barrios traveled to Puerto Rico and fought to a draw with undefeated Jose Martinez. It was a rematch of their first contest, which also ended in a draw.

Ancajas, from Barangay Ramirez, Magallanes, Cavite, Philippines, won on Sept. 3, 2016 in Taguig City, Philippines, when he knocked down the previously undefeated McJoe Arroyo in the eighth round en route to a unanimous decision. Ancajas made his U.S. and Top Rank debut as the co-feature to the Gilberto Ramirez vs. Habib Ahmed bout on a Top Rank on ESPN card, Feb. 3 in Corpus Christi, Texas. On that night, Ancajas steamrolled Israel Gonzalez, knocking him down three times and scoring a 10th-round TKO. 
 
One of the rising stars in the lighter weight classes, Ancajas is 16-0 with 14 knockouts since his only loss, a 10-round majority decision to Mark Geraldo on March 17, 2012. He has defended his title in Australia, Northern Ireland, and Macao, a world traveler intent on staking his claim as the top fighter in the loaded 115-pound weight class.

It’s a sht fight but Ancajas has no control over his career. He is Arum’s puppet and he fights whoever TR matchmakers put in front of him. As big of a superstar Pacman was, even he couldnt make demands to…

Leave Top Rank Jerwin. It'll be the single greatest thing you've done in your career.

[QUOTE=SceneBoxer;19016403]I think this would be the last of his Top Rank 3 fight deal. He might not be re-signed with TR which is not really a bad thing since the good fights is outside TR.[/QUOTE] He should sign with Loeffler…

We're reaching the point where Ancajas needs to be taking on better opposition. That list of defenses is looking pretty weak, but he was taking slight steps up until this, next fight needs to be a unification or other top…
