Los Angeles, CA – “HURRICANE CAMP“
3-time Women’s Boxing World Champion Ana ‘The Hurricane’ Julaton has been busy preparing for her next fight against her bigger and more experienced veteran opponent Franchesca Alcanter. The 10 round fight will be for Julaton’s WBO female super bantamweight crown and is scheduled at the Craneway Pavilion at Point Richmond in the Bay Area on February 25.
Fresh from her second trip back to the Philippines to promote her fight, Julaton went straight to LA upon arriving to San Francisco Sunday evening. On Wednesday, Julaton started sparring and did 5 3-minute rounds (around 8 by women’s standards) with former light flyweight World Champion Rodel Mayol.
Mayol, who stands around 5’4, fits the bill as Julaton’s sparring partner for Alcanter perfectly according to Julaton’s advisor Angelo Reyes. Not only is Mayol a former World Champion, his size and style of fighting is similar to Alcanter. Mayol didn’t hold back against Julaton and gave her all she could handle during the sparring session. Mayol also helped Julaton realize some of the flaws in her style which opens her to get hit for counterpunches, which is Alcanter’s bread and butter.
Julaton’s trainer Freddie Roach has also been doing mitts and working closely with Julaton at the Wild Card where they will be training at for the next couple of weeks. The Hall of Fame trainer is bent on turning her female prodigy into the best she could be as she aims to unify all the belts in her division.
