GMA Network, Inc. (GMA), home of pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao, signed another boxing luminary in Ana “The Hurricane” Julaton, current IBA and WBO Women’s Super Bantamweight champion, to a 3-fight deal beginning with her upcoming match against Argentinean Yesica “La Leona” Marcos this March.
The forthcoming fight is in defense of Julaton’s WBO Super Bantamweight title and will be held in Marcos’ hometown in San Martin, Argentina.
Julaton, who has always been identified as a Kapuso fighter, is pleased to be reunited with GMA Network and describes the experience as “refreshing”. “I am happy my promoter, Allan Tremblay of Orion Sports, and I are one with GMA Network again”, said the Filipina fighter.
“GMA Network has such a powerful reach that I feel like I am able to inspire fellow Kapusos all over the globe using my image as a Filipina succeeding in such a brutal, not to mention, male-dominated sport. My heart goes out to all my Filipino supporters, and to GMA for supporting me and for sharing my story,” Julaton continued.
GMA never ceased to believe in Julaton’s qualities not only as a professional boxer, but more so as a Filipino who brings pride and honor to the country. GMA will air the match dubbed as “Laban ng Lahi presents: Giyera Sa Argentina Ana Julaton vs Yesica Marcos” on March 18, Sunday, 11 am via satellite from Mendoza, Argentina.
Julaton is already in Argentina all set to defend her WBO title next week. (GMA Network)
