Almost reaching peak form, Jerwin Ancajas refuses to be bothered over snags in his application for a US visa.
“No matter what happens, I will be ready physically and mentally,” the 28-year-old Ancajas said.
Joven Jimenez can attest to that, the Filipino star’s trainer and manager said Ancajas is near his top shape for his defense of the IBF super flyweight championship against Mexican Jonathan Rodriguez.
The fight is penciled for September, according to Jimenez.
And the visa problem is just a minor bump for the Panabo City pride (32-1-2 with 22 knockouts), Jimenez said, and all he has to do is maintain his level of sharpness.
“We are not disappointed; we are used to this kind of situation,” Jimenez added. “We are just waiting for the right time.”
