Default Re: Who Was The Greater Fighter Salvador Sanchez or Ruben Olivares

Castillo as well. He gave a good effort against Arguello and Sanchez actually.

But yes, I'd tend to agree. Olivares stopped Rudkin never knocked out previously (early career cut stoppage), wasted Rose who could be hurt but was a big bantam and whilst other brilliant contenders were pushing Rose mega close Olivares spanked him (and Rose went on to beat Guts at lightweight, who Anj considers a 'dominant' lightweight champion eventually), stopped Sakurai, Olympic Gold medallist and a tricky southpaw boxer, 2-1 with Castillo.

Herrera had his number. It happens when you fight a consistently high level of competition. And sure he was patchy post-bantamweight title but that tends to happen after 65 fights and a high life.

And yes, his K.O ratio is ridiculous, and such a skilled fighter as well.

No debate for me, even if I'd only have Olivares one or two places above Salvador in a Mexican ATG list.
