PRESS STATEMENT FROM TV5:
"The upcoming boxing bout of Fil-Am WBO and IBF Super-Bantamweight World Champion Ana "The Hurricane" Julaton is surely one for the books as she defends her WBO title belt against one tough and formidable challenger, World Contender Franchesca "The Chosen One" Alcanter.
"The much-awaited championship bout will happen at the Craneway Pavilion in Point Richmond, California and will be enjoyed by Filipinos for free as it airs live via satellite on TV5 and its newly launched 24-hour news and sports channel AksyonTV UHF Channel 41 (Channel 29 in Metro Davao and Metro Cebu and Channel 1 on Cignal Digital Cable TV) on Saturday, February 26, from 12:00 nn to 2:00 pm.
"Dubbed as The Return of the Hurricane, the Julaton-Alcanter championship bout piques the interest and curiosity of boxing aficionados and the general public alike because Manny Pacquiao’s coach Freddie Roach is training Julaton for this particular fight.
"It is going to be one intense and exciting boxing match and, thanks to TV5 and AksyonTV Channel 41, Filipinos will get to experience it in real-time for free. A replay of the international boxing match will also air on AksyonTV Channel 41 on Saturday at 8:30pm-9:30pm."
