Julaton Touches Down to Hero’s Welcome in Toronto

TORONTO, ON – (Wednesday, March 24, 2010) San Francisco’s Filipino fighting sensation Ana “The Hurricane” Julaton (6-1-1, 1 KO) arrived in Toronto Tuesday to a hero’s welcome, with fans greeting her at Pearson International Airport upon her arrival, and at a special dinner in her honor just hours later.

This coming Saturday, March 27, at Rumble at Rama XI, Julaton will face Toronto’s own Lisa “Bad News” Brown (16-4-3, 5 KO’s) in a battle for the vacant WBA Female Super Bantamweight title.

“Wow, I’ve only just arrived in Toronto for the first time, and it already feels like home away from home,” Julaton told an adoring audience Tuesday night at M Studio Restaurant in Mississauga.

“Female boxing doesn’t usually get this type of attention, so I’m not used to being in the spotlight, but when you get an opportunity like this you have to take advantage of it.”

If the photogenic Julaton can get past the ultra-tough, and far more experienced Brown, Allan Tremblay, President of Orion Sports Management, sees nothing but great things ahead for “The Hurricane.”

“For the past year and a half, we’ve had such a great relationship with our Filipino fans,” Tremblay told the crowd at M Studio. “And a great showing by Ana will help make Filipino boxing in Toronto that much bigger.”

“We have an absolutely great event on tap Saturday. But this is just the beginning of Ana’s journey to superstardom.”

Aside from Julaton vs. Brown, two other sensational title match-ups round out one of the deepest fight cards in Canadian history.

In a special ten round attraction, champion Greg Kielsa (11-0, 5 KO’s), and challenger Neven Pajkic.(11-0, 5 KO’s), face off in a historic battle pitting two undefeated fighters vying for the Canadian Heavyweight title.

And in the main event, “The Canadian Kid” Steve Molitor (31-1, 12 KO’s, IBF #2) renews acquaintances with South African Takalani Ndlovu (30-5, 18 KO’s) in a bout for the now-vacant IBF Junior Featherweight championship of the world, a title Molitor defended successfully five times from 2007-2008.

The two squared-off in July of 2007, at the very first Rumble at Rama, with Molitor dominating from the opening bell en route to defending his newly won crown with a brilliant 9th round TKO.
