FORMER world champion Jerwin Ancajas leaves for the US next week for the remainder of his training camp for his title rematch against Fernando Martinez of Argentina.
Ancajas and his camp led by trainer Joven Jimenez are currently in deep training at the Survival Camp in Magallanes, Cavite as he bids to regain his IBF super-flyweight crown from the 31-year-old champion.
Martinez ended the Filipino’s long, six-year reign as IBF super-flyweight king with a unanimous decision last February in a huge 12-round upset at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Paradise in Nevada.
Ancajas opted to invoke the rematch clause, and the two is set for an Oct. 8 return bout at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California.
