Salvador Sanchez versus Danny Lopez

It’s been 30 years to the day since one of, if not the, greatest boxer to ever come out of Mexico meteoric rise to the top of the boxing world was tragically cut short. Salvador Sanchez died in a car crash, only 23 years old, with many exciting prospects awaiting him. In his young life he had already managed to reach some of the biggest heights in the sport boasting a 44-1-1 record with 32 kayos and the Featherweight title in his possession. This is the fight which won him the first, and only, title he’d hold before his death. It put him on the map and made him one of the biggest names in the game and may have been his finest moment in the ring. Rest in peace, champ.
