Default Naseem Hamed vs Salvador Sanchez.

Would Hamed have a punchers chance?

It would be like his loss to MAB, only he would have been stopped by SS. In other words, outclassed and stopped...maybe by 8 or 9.

No chance for Hamed here. None. At 126, Sal was punched by Danny Lopez, Azumah and Wilfredo Gomez and stopped all 3. Chava's on the next level above MAB. Hamed gets discouraged when one of his bombs lands on Sal's chin and Chava continues to go about his business. Hamed's totally outclassed in this one.

Like others said Sanchez is on a different class, he dissects Hamed from start to finish winning a very lopsided decision and i wouldnt rule out a late rounds stoppage if Sanchez goes for it. Hamed was good Sanchez was great.

Keep in mind that most of the guys that Salvador Sanchez fought had a good punchers chance against him anyway especially given the unique/untypical mexican non-brawling, smooth lateral movement style of fighting that he brought into every fight. But to answer your question, my projection: Sanchez KO9 Prince Naseem Hamed.

Sanchez beats Hamed practically the same way he beat and dissected the great Wifredo Gomez in 81' except that in this case Salvador would actually be favored to beat Hamed.

At bantamweight Naz might. Sal' had some shakey moments down there and Naz beat a top ten ranked fighter. So say, the Hamed of the Belcastro fight (dropped him early then coasted for large parts of the fight) Vs the Sanchez of the Badillo fight (badly hurt by a journeyman)

Other than that, no.

Why did not fighting all-out aggressive like most of his countrymen give Sanchez's opponents more of a punchers chance?

He has as much of a puncher's chance as Lopez did.

This subject came up recently, and I stick to a Sanchez stoppage, mid rounds...

I don't think Sal' stops Hamed. Naz could be knocked over because of his bad balance but he had a good chin. If he's badly hurt he'll just own and move awkwardly.

But then I guess Sal' would be landing a lot of leather. Hamed was at least fairly elusive at his very best, just nowhere near as slick as he fought he was. Sanchez is no Steve Robinson, but then he wasn't infallible himself, unfortunately Hamed is not in the Cowdell, Castillo, Ford mould.

If Gamboa could keep his hands up? I'd give him a better shot at upsetting Sal's rhythm.

Because when you fight with the type of style that Sanchez fought with, a style that defied what most Mexican boxers usually fought with, which consisted of very good lateral movement and which was more than enough to throw a lot of his opponents timing off, a decent jab, good head feints, counterpunching and a good defense that leaves an opponents chances against him at best automatically trimmed down to just a punchers chance. Sanchez didn't run but he didn't stand in front of you and he was always on his toes for a good 15-rounds of work. He in his own right was an artist and not to many guys around at the time fighting south of Sugar Ray Leonard's division had the same type of technique.

Sanchez by wide decision.

At 126lbs, Hamed has NO chance, not even a puncher's chance. None.

He may have one, but Sanchez would eventually negate this, like he did several times before. possible stoppage around 8-10.
