Reigning IBF super flyweight world champion Jerwin 'Pretty Boy' Ancajas had no trouble making weight for his title defense against Ireland's Jamie Conlan, scheduled for Saturday, November 18th in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
The reigning and defending champion came in at 115-pounds, same as challenger Conlan.
This will be Ancajas' third title defense in twelve months, after successfully retaining the championship against Jose Alfredo Rodriguez and Teiru Kinoshita earlier this year.
Undefeated hometown boy Conlan on the other hand, will be challenging for a world championship for the first time in his 19-fight career.
Ancajas and Conlan do battle for the IBF super flyweight championship at the SSE Arena in Belfast.
