PSC beefs up Ancajas buildup

In his quest to regain the International Boxing Federation super-flyweight crown, Jerwin Ancajas is being helped out by personnel from the Philippine Sports Commission.

Ancajas is slated to battle Argentine Fernando Martinez on 8 October in Carson, California, and PSC executive director Guillermo Iroy told Daily Tribune that the nutritional, conditioning and sports psychology aspect of the buildup are being addressed.

Taking charge of Ancajas’ dietary program are Jane Serapion and Karen Pineda while Mark Dnyell Banyang is handling strength and conditioning.

Also lending a hand to Abcajas’ bold bid is Dennis Ang, whose expertise is sports psychology.

Iroy said the PSC’s involvement doesn’t have any monetary factor.

Ancajas, 30, is in the thick of training in Magallanes, Cavite.

Last February, Ancajas, then heavily-favored, dropped a decision to Martinez in their slugfest staged at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.

Ancajas enters the scheduled 12-rounder at the Dignity Health Sports Park (formerly Home Depot Center) holding a 33-2-2 win-loss-draw record with 22 knockouts.

A veteran of the 2016 Rio Olympics, Martinez, 31, nicknamed “Pumita,” has a record of 14-0 with eight knockouts.
