Photos: Pacquiao Welcomes Jerwin Ancajas To Senate Office

Manila - Senator Manny Pacquiao welcomed MP Promotions' IBF 115-pound world champion Jerwin Ancajas, manager Joven Jimenez and agent Sean Gibbons to his Senate Office for the presentation of Jerwin's IBF world title belt.

Last month, eight division world champion Pacquiao presented Ancajas with a bonus of P500,000 [around $10,731 USD] - for his rousing championship victory over Puerto Rico’s McJoe Arroyo.

Ancajas, who is the son of a banana plantation worker in Panabo, Davao del Norte dominated the Puerto Rican world champion and even sent him through the ropes with a flurry of punches in the 8th round to win a unanimous twelve round decision at the Navy Gymnasium in Taguig City last Saturday.

The southpaw earned a measly P173,000 [around $3,713 USD] due to a low purse bid of a mere $25,000 with the champion getting the bulk of the money.

Ancajas told The Manila Standard in a pre-fight interview that he agreed to the small purse just so he could earn a crack at the title and his hard work and sacrifice along with trainer Joven Jimenez paid off handsomely.

He told us “what was important to me was to win the world crown and bring honor to our country. Money, to me, is not the primary motivation,” Ancajas said.

Senator Pacquiao, was  touched by Ancajas’ humility and determination which reminded him of his own career and indicated Ancajas who gave MP Promotions its first world title” deserved to get a bonus for bringing honor to our country.”

Manny noted that Ancajas had all the attributes  champions are made of – humility, courage, determination and strong faith in God.”

Ancajas is probably the closest thing to manny Pacquiao outside of manny Pacquiao. He's ****ing great, made the champ look like a chump when he won that strap. I hope the best for Ancajas that he follows the right path.
