Default Remarkable Salvador Sanches

What a gem of fighter this man was. I've seen his fights many times, but I doubt I'll every get bored of seeing such a wonderful boxer. Such a tragedy when he passed away, at such a tender age aswell.

What's also very striking about Salvador's bouts, is that the best of him was seen in the "business end" of bouts, a lot between rounds 12-15. I wish 15rounders were brought back.

Snaches had the ability to slug & box. Not many fighters, especially of today, can do both. Sanches' resume is highly efficient indeed. Wins over such peers like Nelson, Gomez, Danny Lopez, Laporte, Cowdell, Garcia etc, was very high scalps indeed.

Sanches turned pro aged just sixteen. He amassed an amazing 44-1-1 (32) record in the seven years he was a pro. That's some activity indeed.

One wonders how far Sanches could have gone if he had stayed alive. He was only 23, could still have made improvements of his game, & maybe would have become a better fighter. How frightening a prospect is that? I certainly feel he would definitely have moved up in weight & more titles.

RIP Mr Sanches

He was great, but at some point when he moved up, he was going to lose.Most likely to Camacho or Rosario or someone of that nature.

He was an excellent fighter, who like Holyfield fought just above people's levels. Superb trait if Wilfredo Gomez is the opposite corner, not so good when it is Pat Cowdell, and you are going life and death with him...

If Cowdell gave him problems, maybe Bernard Taylor had a chance too.

I don't think Cowdell gave Sal too many problems. He just fought to the level of his opponent and people were surprised that Cowdell was still in there after 8 rounds.

I can't see Bernard Taylor, slick as he was, beating Sanchez. Sooner or later Sanchez will catch up with Taylor and punish him to the body to slow him down for those choice right hands late in the fight.

One of Sanchez' greatest assets was his temperemant in the ring - the man was too cool for school.
