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.
