Ancajas retains IBF belt after Round 10 KO of Mexican challenger

By Ivan Saldajeno

MANILA--Jerwin Ancajas impressed everyone in his first fight in the United States, successfully defending his IBF junior bantamweight title after beating Mexican opponent Israel Gonzalez via knockout in Corpus Christi on Sunday (Philippine Time).

Ancajas started the fight strong, quickly flooring Gonzalaez with his trademark left hook right at the very first round.

Ancajas then put a boxing clinic the rest of the way, delivering crisp shots at Gonzalez, although the latter tried to go toe-to-toe in the fifth round.

Gonzalez also tried to get it on with Ancajas midway through the tenth round, but that opened the door for Ancajas to deliver another knockdown on him with a left hook.

Shortly afterward, Ancajas connected on a devastating left punch to the head of Gonzalez that knocked him out.

Ancajas, whose knockout came at the 1:50 mark of Round 10, moves up to 27-1-1 with 19 knockouts, while Gonzalez fell to 20-2, getting knocked out for the first time in his pro career.
