Photos: Ancajas vs. Sultan, Yafai vs. Carmona - Ready For War

History is only one day away, as Jerwin "Pretty Boy’" Ancajas will defend the International Boxing Federation (IBF) junior bantamweight world title in the main event Saturday evening against countryman Jonas Sultan at the Save Mart Center. It marks the first world title bout featuring two Filipino fighters in 93 years, when Pancho Villa defended the world flyweight title against Clever Sencio on May 2, 1925.

They should not allow Carmona to fight. No fight no money. Or give 50 percent of Carmona's purse to Yafai?
