  • Ancajas and Rodriguez proudly represented their countries with skill, will and determination.

    Ancajas’ body punching was outstanding, and his punches looked more impactful than Rodriguez’s punches. Rodriguez gave it a heck of an attempt, but Rodriguez was missing one main quality: impactful punching power.

    I also believe Ancajas won.

  • Ancajas clearly won the fight. If not the round 8, it was a very very close match.
    Ancajas is now ready for Estrada and/or Chocolatito Gonzales.
