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

And I'll take green and in athletic prime over a faded or shot incarnation in almost every instance. Nelson's a great fighter, he was great in the fight, Sanchez had the experience, and little clue who Azumah was coming in as a substitute. Could've very well been blindsided and overwhelmed, but overwhelmed wasn't in his vocabulary.
