“The day Frank Sanchez gets the opportunity and fights for a world title is the day he becomes heavyweight champion,” manager Mike Borao added, “the Cuban contender is on a collision course with Tyson Fury.”
Frank Sanchez “The Cuban Flash” has made a prominent “extraordinary rise” towards a world title shot, the Cuban’s manager Mike Borao predicted: Tyson Fury’s first defeat would be imposed by Frank Sanchez.
Resources state that the 29-year-old (Frank Sanchez) trains alongside the undisputed super-middleweight world champion Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez in Eddy Reynoso’s gym and his fight with Carlos Negron on New Year's Eve in Florida would take him another step toward a world title fight.
“Frank Sanchez is one of the most active high-profile fighters today,” Mike Borao says.
“Frank was the co-main event for Fury vs Wilder III, he has featured on Canelo’s pay-per-view fights, and he is now a co-main event for the Charles Martin vs Luis Ortiz pay-per-view fight.”
“His rise has been extraordinary, as well as his undeniable talent.”
On the undercard of Tyson Fury's spectacular knockout victory over Deontay Wilder, Sanchez established himself as a serious contender by thrashing fellow unbeaten competitor Efe Ajagba in a convincing points victory.
“Sanchez will be impossible to avoid if he maintains his relentless progress,” Borao believes.
“Tyson is no fool, so I doubt you see a voluntary defense against Frank anytime soon – he will have to force the issue by beating guys like Efe Ajagba and work towards the mandatory,” Borao says.
Borao says, "At Frank's current pace, I have no doubt he will become No 1 contender in short order.” “One thing is for sure, I am going to put every ounce of energy I have to deliver for them.” He added.
Sanchez has propelled himself up to No 6 in the WBC ranking with 19 victories and he is now within the striking distance of WBC champion Tyson Fury. Frank vigorously leveled himself up with 14 wins in the first two years of his pro career without suffering a single defeat.
