World junior bantamweight Jerwin Ancajas says he’s willing to
take on Srisaket Sor Rungvisai anywhere as long as the Thai
world champion’s own title is on the line.
Ancajas currently holds the IBF belt he has successfully
defended six times, while Srisaket owns the WBC
“I am willing to fight anywhere. If we come back to Thailand
and fight there, no problem. If we end up in the United States,
then good for the both of us,” he said.
The Filipino champion flew to Bangkok over the weekend to do
some scouting on Srisaket in the latter’s title defense against
Iran Diaz of Mexico in a fight promoted by ONE Championship.
Srisaket won by a lopsided decision.
“It played out just as I expected. Don’t get me wrong, Iran
Diaz is a great challenger, but Srisaket Sor Rungvisai is just
on a different level . . . I had fun watching it,” Ancajas
He said he hopes he gets the next shot against the Thai for an
opportunity to unify their belts.
If it gets set in the Philippines, so much the better, he said.
“If we can all find a way for Top Rank and ONE Championship to
work together and promote the unification bout in the
Philippines, my home country, even better,” he said.
