Re: Salvador Sanchez (01/26/59 - 08/12/82)
Your top three 126lb fighters in history...
Just behind them are Sanchez and Pedroza. Both superb champions who tended to take some time to assess their opponents before accelerating in the later portion of their fights. In the case of Chava, his placing tends to be hurt by the fact that he died so young and a lot of people tend to focus on what he could have done, rather than what he actually did. But based on what he did, he ranks very highly among the great featherweights. Very view fighters got as much work done as he did in his career.
