(JULY 9) On August 3, 2012,
Ana "The Huracane" Julaton 11-3-1 ( 1KO ) steps back into the
ring in Kanasin, Mexico, to fight Magali “The Magician”
Rodriquez 6-4-1 ( 3KOs ). The two will be fighting a
10-round non-title bout.
Rodriguez is looking forward for the opportunity fight in her
native, Mexico, and to pull an upset of Julaton and put her name
back into the mix of talented female Mexican stars that have
burst onto the World boxing scene.
Julatons' Promoter, Orion Sports Management with their partners,
Yucatan Boxing have been staging shows in the Yucatan for a
number of years and “The Hurricane” is right at home as a
result. This will be her fourth major contest there and she
brings not only local support in the Yucatan , where she has
been nicknamed, “The Yucatan Princess” but also millions of
followers back in the Philippines where her career has an eager
following based on the exposure provided by The GMA Network.
Such will be the case on August 3, as GMA has confirmed their
intention to continue covering Julaton as she works her way back
to the World Championship.
“This is another major fight for me”, stated Julaton. “Rodriquez
is no ‘walk in the park’. She will bring it all on August 3 and
I have to be prepared accordingly”.
Julaton, who yearns to fight in
the Philippines, went on to say, “ I have asked Allan
Tremblay, my Promoter, to make that happen and I know he is
undertaking discussions for a contest at home either late in
2012 or early 2013. That will be the ultimate for me. A proud
Filipina finally getting a chance to fight in front of my many
fans who have been supporting me for so long. This is my dream”.
Also appearing on the card are two of Orion Sports highly touted
prospects, Junior Welterweight Felix “El Destino” Mercedes and
Cruiserweight, Milos “The Buffalo Bomber” Pantelic.
