The IBF World Super-Flyweight Title
Ancajas (30-1-2, 20 KOs) - the longest reigning World Champion at 115lbs - takes on no. 1 contender Ryuichi Funai (31-7, 22 KOs) on May 4th.
In 2017, the 27-year-old had a breakout year with two impressive stoppage wins against Teiru Kinoshita on a Manny Pacquiao undercard, and Jamie Conlan in Belfast four months later.
Since his only defeat in 2012 Ancajas hasn’t lost in 18 bouts, but he wants to make a statement after a disappointing draw to Alejandro Santiago last time out.
“I was hard at work three weeks after my last fight with Santiago,” Ancajas said. “I am going to be in the best shape in my upcoming fight with Funai. Coming off my last fight, I really want to give a great performance and defend my World Title in style for the fans in Stockton.”
