ANA "The Hurricane" Julaton made short work of Mexican Abigail Ramos to score one of the fastest knockouts ever in boxing history Friday (Saturday, Manila time) in Yucatan, Mexico.
The 32-year-old Filipina knocked out Ramos in just 19 seconds of the first round of their scheduled 10-round super-bantamweight non-title bout at the Francisco Villa Oriente in Yucatan.
The knockout is the fastest ever in Yucatan boxing history, according to Peninsula Deportivo media chief Juan Carlos Gutierrez as quoted by The Examiner.
Julaton, the former World Boxing Association and World Boxing Organization super-bantamweight champion, improved to 12-3-1, with 2 KOs as she won for the second straight time after losing his WBO belt to Yesica Patricia Marcos early this year.
“Ana has truly improved and added power to her boxing style,” said Allan Tremblay, who promotes Julaton, in an interview with The Examiner.
Julaton was initially scheduled to fight another Mexican boxer in Magali Rodriguez, only for the fight to fall through, and paved the way for the entry of Ramos.
For Julaton, it doesn’t matter who her opponent is.
“I am ready for whoever Allan will put in front of me,” said Julaton, born to Filipino parents but now based in Daly City, California. “I wished for a Marcos rematch and a Nava fight. I will always fight with all my heart no matter who is in the ring with me.”
