Kelsey Jeffries who won the I.B.A. SuperBantamweight World Championship (122lbs) back in 2004 before moving up to 126lbs is currently ranked by the WBC #1 Featherweight in the world and is the GBU Featherweight & IFBA Featherweight World Champion making "The Road Warrior" Ana’s most dangerous opponent. Jeffries is considered by many to be one of the Best Female Boxers in the History of the sport. In Kelsey’s 51 professional fights spanning over a decade of Professional Boxing, she has captured and defended multiple titles including 3 World Championships. Kelsey who won her 1st World Championship at the HP Pavillion, ironically the same year Ana began her amateur boxing career in the SF Golden Gloves is a true boxing veteran. Julaton who is no stranger to big events in her Hometown, has had a stellar amateur career. One of her brightest Bay Area moments being her domination of the 2006 SF Golden Gloves Championship to winning the title at the San Francisco Civic Auditorium in front of over 5,500 fans. Should "The Hurricane" pull off the upset she becomes the first Female Filipino-American to ever win the I.B.A. World Championship, a belt that was captured & defended 5 times by the great Laila Ali. Could it be possible that the Best Male and Female boxers in the World today be of Philippine heritage? Will Ana pull off the upset and become the "Homecoming Queen" or will Kelsey continue her streak of 8 consecutive victories at the HP Pavilion which began over 7 years ago? Find out the answer on September 12th at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, CA.
Ana’s had Star appeal in the Bay Area since 2005 when she competed at the SF Golden Gloves in 2005 and 2006 which aired on Comcast and she was the co main event to a crowd of over 5,500 both times in the SF Civic Auditroium. With less than two years of Pro experience she is making a leap in competition and it all has to do with her beliefs as a Filipina. This is someone who has stayed true to her message of putting Filipina’s as a face of strength to the public eye.
