On June 24 in Miami Orion Sports presents Ana “The Hurricane” Julaton looking to try a new challenge by moving up to another weight class.

Over the past few years of observing Manny Pacquiao and seeing his success at fighting in his natural weight, Julaton, with the help of her famed trainer Freddie Roach, looks to her first fight at a catchweight of 128lbs, almost two weight classes above her current status as the reigning International Boxing Association (IBA) and World Boxing Organization (WBO) Superbantamweight World Champion 122lbs.

Roach who has said in the past that Julaton has the ability to move up in weight and win multiple titles like his star pupil Pacquiao has been training Julaton at his famed Wild Card Gym in Hollywood, California since mid-May.

Always up for the challenge Julaton will do so versus a younger, power punching “Gunslinger” in Angel “Non-Stop” Gladney (6 wins [5 KO], 3 losses, 1 draw.

The 23-year-old heavy handed professional from South Carolina started her career by knocking out five of her first seven opponents by vicious first round knockouts.

All of Gladney’s knockout’s came at the weight of 127lbs and 130lbs.

Julaton (8 wins [1 KO], 2 losses, 1 draw) hopes to have a successful campaign in her move up in weight and a win in Miami could mean another shot at a world championship at 126lbs later in the year.

Julaton is quickly becoming the most dominant 122lbs fighter in the world today and with Roach the sky is the limit for the future of this “Awesome Twosome” on her way to becoming the best pound-for-pound female fighter in the planet.

Will it be youth and power vs. beauty and experience.

Stay tuned June 24 to find out if the Filipina Beauty can prove that she is a beast in the ring.

This all action packed 8 round non title fight is brought to you by Orion Sports Management at the Dade County Auditorium, Miami, Florida.
