Ancajas, 26, arrived in Manila Tuesday evening, two days after defeating fellow Filipino Jonas Sultan via unanimous decision for his fifth consecutive successful title defense since winning the IBF's 115-pound title back in 2016.
The champ will get some time to rest before he returns to training.
For now, there's no official word yet on what's next for Ancajas, but Top Rank Promotions CEO Bob Arum has talked about having Ancajas unify titles with WBA Super Flyweight champion Khalid Yafai.
Matchmaker Sean Gibbons on the other hand, talked about getting Ancajas ready for the likes of 115-pound stars Srisaket Sor Rungvisai and Juan Francisco Estrada.
