On March 16, Ana “The Hurricane” Julaton, will continue her role as “The Ultimate Road Warrior” as she takes her considerable talents to Mendoza, Argentina. Julaton 10-2-1 (1 KO) will defend her WBO Junior Featherweight Title against Interim Champion Yesica Marcos 18-0-1 (6 KO's) of Argentina where the pride of both the Philippines and Argentina will be on the line.
The Freddie Roach/Angelo Reyes trained Julaton is anxious to display her talents around the world and agreed to take the matchup in Marcos’ hometown after her Promoter, Allan Tremblay of Orion Sports Management, secured a contractual agreement from Marcos’ Promoter to agree to neutral officials for the contest under the sanctioning of the WBO. “Without this in place,” said Tremblay, “we would not have taken the fight. It was imperative to level the playing field and give Ana the best possible chance to succeed in what will be the toughest test of her career. Mr. Osvaldo Rivero, of K.O. International , Marcos’ Promoter, has been most gracious throughout the negotiation process for which I am appreciative. This is a much anticipated matchup that will test the skill and endurance of both these world class competitors.”
The bout will be televised in Argentina by TYC Sports and by the GMA Network in the Philippines, and around the world on their International outlets. GMA has been a staunch backer of Julaton and is directly responsible for her soaring popularity within the Filipino Nation.
