Freddie Roach to Train Two-Time Champ Ana Julaton

Legendary Trainer Joins Team “Hurricane” for Rumble at Rama XII

RAMA, ON (Wednesday, May 19, 2010) – Two-time world champion Ana “The Hurricane” Julaton (6-2-1, 1 KO) doesn’t need help turning fight fans’ heads. The radiant super bantamweight is not only beautiful, but fights with a ferocity and passion rarely seen in the sport.

However, in order to swivel her opponents’ heads more frequently, Julaton has reunited with boxing’s top trainer, Freddie Roach, for her June 30th bout for the WBO 122 lb. world title at Casino Rama, in Rama, Ontario.

Roach has trained Filipino icon Manny Pacquiao into one of the greatest fighters of all-time, and has become the foremost boxing mind on the planet.

“Freddie’s record speaks for itself,” said Allan Tremblay, Julaton’s promoter.

“She’s trained with Freddie before, and having him back in the fold will boost her confidence into the stratosphere.”

For Tremblay, having Roach in Julaton’s corner is not only a boon to his fighter (who he recently signed to a worldwide promotional contract), but to the prospect of broadening her already considerable appeal amongst Filipino fight fans, and the general public as a whole.

“Freddie alone will drum up interest and credibility in boxing in Ontario,” Tremblay said.

“Now, couple the fact that Ana’s already loved in the Filipino community, with the frenzied admiration for Pacquiao, and by extension, Roach, amongst Filipinos around the world, and Ana’s popularity should go through the roof.”

Rumble at Rama XII will be promoted by Orion Sports Management, in association with Casino Rama.

Tickets for Rumble at Rama XII are $125, $75, $50 and $25 and are available in-person at the Casino Rama Box Office, and at all TicketMaster locations, by calling (416) 870-8000 and online at Ticket prices do not include applicable taxes or service charges.
