Frank Sanchez: Ajagba is One-Dimensional Like Wilder - I'd Beat Him!

Promising heavyweight prospect Frank "The Cuban Flash" Sanchez (15-0) was in the ring earlier this month when he dominated veteran Joey Dawejko over 10 rounds.  The bout opened up a Premier Boxing Champions on Fox tripleheader that was headlined by Robert Helenius upset victory over the previously unbeaten Adam Kownacki.

In the co-feature bout another up and coming heavyweight prospect, Efe Ajagba (13-0) stopped Razvan Cojanu in 9 rounds. The Nigerian knockout artist has stopped all but 2 of his opponents.

When asked for his thoughts on Ajagba, Sanchez said that while he hits hard, he is a more or less a one-trick pony and hasn't been impressed with what he has seen thus far.

He also said that he would welcome a fight right away with Ajabga and believes that he would dominate him similarly to how Tyson Fury beat Deontay Wilder in their rematch that took place in February.

“I can fight with him right now. He is similar to Wilder in that all that he has is the power in his right hand. When he fights a boxer like me who can move in the ring like me and with my speed I know I would beat him,” Sanchez stated.

Both fighters had similar campaigns in 2019 with each PBC fighter going 4-0 with 3 knockout victories.

DW would make both guys piss them selves after landing once . Everybody talking know after TF did what no other boxer tried or even thought to . DW I hope you get some new trainers and take this time…

Ajagba vs Sanchez is another Harper's scenario. After doing all the talk standing before Ajagba is another thing. He's a monster

One-dimensional boxer is becoming Wilder's nickname these days.�� On a serious a note; I am afraid that I must agree with Sanchez here. Efe is too slow, has no movement and get easily hit on the face. For those reasons…

If Sanchez fights Efe the same way he fought Joey , it’s an easy win He’d have to stay away from Efe’s money shot Not sure how good Sanchez’s chin is but that would be his biggest fear

Ajagba is worse than Wilder. The man is as slow as a snail and very mechanical. And I don't even like Wilder.
