    Ok, I am going to take Vicente Saldivar Garcia.

    Vicente Samuel Saldívar García

    , Saldívar was a dynamic fighter in the ring. He could box or brawl, and often softened opponents with a brutal body attack. Among his greatest assets was his stamina; he scored seven knockouts after the 7th round. Saldívar had an unusually slow heart and pulse rate, which he claimed was the secret of the phenomenal pace he was able to maintain in the ring

    that is a great fight. I think Saldivar is
    A. The most forgotten great fighter in boxing history.
    B. One of the 5 Mexican s who can claim greatest Mexican fighter ever.
    Pfp, I would take Saldivar & SANCHEZ over Chavez.
    I can't pick a winner between the 2 Sals. My heart says Saldivar but SANCHEZ just finds ways to win.

    Tough to call - I think Sanchez might take it but maybe I'm underrating Saldivar?

    Robert, this one I'm going to come to terms with and actually pick a winner, lol. As it is right now, after much thinking,...I've come to the conclusion(s) that;
    1. Both Sals were even greater than JC Chavez.
    2. That this match up would have/could have been the greatest fight south of 160 lbs in boxing history...actually rivalling the best in any of the other divisions. Equalling the FOTC IMHO.
    3. Agreeing with The Morlocks that Saldivar is waay, waaay overlooked and underrated, and that's gotta change.
    4. Fourth conclusion is that I've got to light a fire under my ass and decide just who would win this thing...and I will, even if it takes me till this coming Monday:biggrin:...and I'm sure I won't have to bump this thread by then, but I surely will if I have to.

    Awsome!! I cannot believe people are not salivating over this fight. They seem to be all caught up in Carnera again which simple boggles my mind. It's really unbelievable. A week or two ago all I read was how great Sal Sanchez was by multiple people. Where are they now that I've put him up against Salvidar????

    Both of these Sals were great at the 15 round distance...and those type fighters I rate as being elite. The old 15 round days were when the men were separated from the boys.

    This match up is the equivalent of "the elephant in the room" as far as boxing history is concerned IMO. I guess that it was just too big and significant to be tackled before. I wouldn't trade this one for 10 heavyweight threads.

    I'll go with Salvador SANCHEZ to get the win. His incredible analytic mind DURING a fight coupled with his recovery rate between rds would be the straw to tip the fight in his favor. Like Carlos Monzon, nothing rattles SANCHEZ and he will analyze Saldivars style, improvise as needed and defeat Vincente.
