Boxing Scene

T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas – In the co-main event battle between two unbeaten heavyweights, Frank Sanchez (19-0, 13 KOs) took a big step towards his dream of securing a world title shot in 2022, as he scored one knockdown on his way to a comfortable, 10-round unanimous decision win over Efe Ajagba.

Sanchez used his superior boxing skills to keep the hard-hitting Ajagba (15-1, 12 KOs) off-balance for the entire fight. The “Cuban Flash” displayed his power as well, flooring Ajagba with a hard right in the seventh. A follow-up left hook which landed a tick after Ajagba’s knee hit the canvas

Ajagba made it to his feet and survived the round but never seriously threatened on his way to the first defeat of his career.

Sanchez, who is trained by respected coach Eddy Reynoso, was able to outbox Ajagba with few issues as the contest played out.

Ajagba was urged by his corner to let his hands go, as they knew he was far behind on the cards, but there was never a sense of urgency to go for the kill.

Sanchez said, “I knew I was going to win all the rounds because I’m much better than him technically. I knew that if I connected, he would fall and he did fall. My game plan was always to frustrate him and go in for the attack.”
