Recent Jamie Conlan conqueror, heavy handed IBF super flyweight champion Jerwin Ancajas, could meet another unbeaten Brit, Kal Yafai, in a unification fight early next year, it is rumoured. Yafai, 23-0 (14) holds the WBA title at 115lbs and the 28 year old from Birmingham most recently defended his title in October, outpointing Sho Ishida unanimously. A fight between the two would generate interest in the UK, as well as being a step up in class for Yafai, and a good test for Ancajas, whose reputation grows with each impressive win.
Yafai is an accomplished technician and would need every bit of his ring nous against Ancajas, 28-1-1 (19), who is used to being away from home and dropped Conlan a number of times en route to his win earlier this month. The power Ancajas carries is scary, but he is not as gifted as Kal skill wise, and the fight would be a real pick-em.
The possibility of a bout has been fired up by promoter Tom Loeffler, who has been talking about the the showdown potentially going ahead on the Superfly2 card planned for February 2018. The Superfly card which took place in September saw Wisaksil Wangek obliterate Roman Gonzalez. Wangek (also known as Srisaket Sor Rungvisai) is scheduled to feature again, this time against mandatory for his WBC super fly title, Juan Francisco Estrada. WBO champ Naoya Inoue is also tipped to feature in what would be an exciting evening's boxing.
