Salvador Sanchez vs Prince Naseem, What If? – It is a showdown of two of boxing’s all-time great featherweights as we look at what if Salvador Samchez had met Price Naseem Hamed in the ring?
The story of Sanchez is one of a life cut short as we lost the young champion in a car accident at the age of 23. He was 44-1-1 in the summer of 1982 as he was coming off a defeat of Azumah Nelson that marked the ninth successful defense of his WBC world featherweight title.
Hamed is remembered as an explosion in the featherweight division. His heyday in the 1990’s was highlighted by memorable ring entrances and bombast as well as a ring style that can only be described as “memorable.”
Who better than Frank Lotierzo to look at all the possibilities of a Sanchez vs Hamed matchup at 126 pounds. In very many ways, both men are unique and with more than 50 years around the ring, Lotierzo delivers version as only he can.
