She already holds two world titles concurrently, but this does not stop Fil-Am prizefighter Ana “The Hurricane” Julaton from striving hard to further improve as she vies for female boxing immortality.
The Daly City-based Julaton has burst into the scene with a pair of impressive wins in 2009 that made her the super-bantamweight champ of the World Boxing Organization (WBO) and the International Boxing Association (IBA) in only her seventh and eighth pro outings.
On Sunday (Manila time), the bedimpled Filipina warrior seeks to annex the vacant World Boxing Association belt, which would make her the lineal champion in the 122-lb division and a true pound-for-pound fighter.
Julaton (6-1-1) is penciled to dispute the WBA belt with veteran Lisa “Bad News” Brown (16-4-3) in a 10-round title fight at the Casino Rama in Ontario, Canada, the latter’s turf.
“It would take a lot of hard work to be on the pound-for-pound,” Julaton said in a media interview via Skype arranged by GMA Network, Inc. on Monday.
