Re: Who Was The Greater Fighter Salvador Sanchez or Ruben Olivares
If Olivares had retired after Castillo III he'd still be greater than Sanchez.
Olivares was inconsistent post-118 (and had some iffy showings there or at least met his match in Herrera) but Sal' only had a short career. You have to cut both a bit of slack in each respect when comparing them with another.
Still, I wouldn't have them far apart from each other. Olivares stops green Sal' at 118 and Sanchez likely stops the best featherweight Olivares.
Still, VERY interesting to see how Sanchez would fare against Olivares in boxing mode. Think it could stunt his rhythm a bit, even thing I'm not huge on Olivares as a feather. Still, the version that Alexis eventually tracked down could give Sanchez some issues despite Sal' and Arguello being completely different stylistically.
