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

I disagree that Sanchez would've gotten much better, if at all, were he not to have died so young. I'd say he'd already entered his prime by that point. He started off young and peaked young. I've no clue how the rest of his career would've went, neither do any of us, but the skill-set and poise he fought with at such a young age tell me he had already hit his stride. If anything, some of his performances just prior to his death were even less impressive than his earlier ones. I think along the same lines with Sanchez as I do someone like Wilfred Benitez, though I'm not sure he'd have faded out as quickly had he not passed.
