Junior bantamweight world titleholder Jerwin Ancajas has held his belt for more than two years -- longer than any other titlist in the division -- and made six successful defenses, but so far the unification fight he wants has eluded him.
Ancajas, a 26-year-old southpaw co-promoted by Manny Pacquiao, traveled from his home in the Philippines to Bangkok, Thailand, to be ringside at Impact Arena for Thai national hero Srisaket Sor Rungvisai's junior bantamweight title defense on Saturday.
Sor Rungvisai (46-4-1, 40 KOs), a 31-year-old southpaw, retained his version of the 115-pound world title for the third time in his second title reign as he cruised to a one-sided victory over Mexico's Iran Diaz, winning by scores of 120-108, 119-109 and 119-109.
After the bout, Ancajas (30-1-2, 20 KOs) joined Sor Rungvisai in the ring to set the stage for a possible unification fight.
Ancajas, the junior bantamweight world titleholder, is seeking a unification bout with Sor Rungvisai.
