Tyson Fury’s world title reign would be ruined by Frank Sanchez, says manager of Cuban competitor Mike Borao | Boxing News

Tyson Fury’s first loss would be inflicted by Frank Sanchez, who has made an “extraordinary ascent” to a world title, Cuban manager Mike Borao said.

Sanchez is within striking distance of WBC champion Fury, having rocketed to 6th in the WBC standings with 19 wins, 14 of which were in the first two years of his professional career.

The 29-year-old trains alongside Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez in Eddy Reynoso’s gym and can take one step closer to a world title fight when he returns to Carlos Negron in Florida on New Year’s Day. Year.

“Frank Sanchez is one of the most active top fighters today,” Borao told Sky Sports.

“Frank was the main co-event for Fury vs. Wilder III, he competed in Canelo’s pay-per-view bouts, and he is now the co-main event for the Charles Martin vs. Luis Ortiz pay-per-view fight.

“His rise was extraordinary, as well as his undeniable talent. “

When asked if Sanchez could threaten Fury, Borao told Sky Sports, “I think Frank Sanchez beats Tyson Fury today.”

Fury wants his next fight scheduled for early 2022, but the WBC still haven’t announced Dillian Whyte as their mandatory challenger, leaving him without a confirmed opponent for a quick comeback.

He told Sky Sports over the weekend: “I’m not really interested, because to be honest it doesn’t really make sense who I want to fight against right now.

“It’s who is available and what makes sense later.”

Sanchez has established himself as a serious challenger by defeating Efe Ajagba, another undefeated rival, in a points-dominant victory on the undercard of Fury’s recent knockout win over Deontay Wilder.

Borao, who also manages Charles Martin’s career and advises Robert Helenius, believes Sanchez will be impossible to avoid if he maintains his relentless progression.

“Tyson is no fool, so I doubt you will see a willful defense against Frank anytime soon – he will have to force the issue by beating guys like Efe Ajagba and working towards the proxy,” Borao said.

“At Frank’s current pace, I have no doubt that he will quickly become the # 1 contender.

“The day Frank Sanchez gets the opportunity and fights for a world title is the day he becomes heavyweight champion.

“In My Perfect World Charles Martin wins the IBF, Robert Helenius wins the WBA and Frank Sanchez wins the WBC or WBO world titles in 2022.

“One thing is for sure, I will put every ounce of energy I have into providing them.”
