Trainer’s stock also rises
Jerwin Ancajas’ 10th round knockout of Mexican Israel Gonzalez in Corpus Christi, Texas, Sunday night, proved to be a windfall for his trainer too, as Joven Jimenez was flooded with inquiries from those interested to join his stable.
Among those who expressed interest were Australian and Chinese boxers, who are willing to train in Survival Camp, which Jimenez and Ancajas put up in Brgy. Ramirez, Magallanes, Cavite.
“Of course, they (foreign boxers) will pay,” said Jimenez, a former amateur boxer and Navyman. “Jerwin and I will be joint partners.”
Meanwhile, promoter Bob Arum told the LA Times Monday that Manny Pacquiao’s opponent for his next fight slated April 14 at Madison Square Garden in New York will be known within the week.
