MANILA, Philippines—Filipino boxing champion Jerwin Ancajas remains hard at work in training at Survival Camp 2 in Lourdes, Dangcagan in Bukidnon, the hometown of his manager and coach Joven Jimenez.

Ancajas did shadowboxing and worked the mitts with Jimenez on Saturday.


The 29-year-old will likely defend his IBF super flyweight world title in November against an opponent who has yet to be named.

MP Promotions is expected to make the announcement soon with regard to Ancajas’ next fight.


Ancajas (33-1-2, 22 KOs) retained his belt for the ninth time last April when he dominated Mexican challenger Jonathan Rodriguez in Connecticut.

He is set to leave for the US soon to continue his buildup.
