Ancajas, Sultan all business heading into historic fight

Ancajas, Sultan all business heading into historic fight

With a Filipino flag lifted behind both fighters, IBF super flyweight champion Jerwin Ancajas checked in at 114.8 pounds, while mandatory challenger Jonas Sultan weighed 114.4 pounds.

Sultan, fighting in his first world title bout, just stared right back at him.

Jerwin Ancajas and Jonas Sultan will fight in the first all-Filipino title bout in 93 years -- and it won't be in Las Vegas or New York, but in Fresno.

Ancajas, Yafai focused on title defenses, not each other Junior bantamweight world titlists Jerwin Ancajas and Kal Yafai are being featured on the same card on Saturday as a prelude to a possible unification -- but don't tell them about that.

WBA junior bantamweight titleholder Kal Yafai (23-0, 14 KOs) of Birmingham, England came in at 114.8 pounds, while Mexico's David Carmona (21-5-5, 9 KOs) missed the cut-off limit for the next division up at 118.6 pounds.
