You can't give Pedroza the credit for being no.1 without beating Sal' either don't get me wrong.
I think Sanchez's great wins are rather thin, Gomez coming up in weight Lopez dynamite puncher who could be outboxed without too much trouble, one dimensional Laporte, novice Nelson,and a split dec over Cowdell. If Olivares had stayed in the shape Sanchez was always in ,this thread would not even be viable imo.

79 kos in 89 wins?
