Frank Sanchez's Quest for Heavyweight Recognition Continues Despite Challenges




Frank Sanchez, the undefeated 31-year-old heavyweight contender, has faced an uphill battle in securing fights against top-tier opponents.


In 2023, Sanchez (24-0, 17 KOs) focused on staying active in the ring, albeit against less formidable competition. His fights against Daniel Martz and Scott Alexander ended swiftly in his favor, with both opponents succumbing to Sanchez's prowess in the early rounds. However, it was his bout against Junior Fa that posed a tougher challenge, with Fa ultimately falling to a seventh-round stoppage.


While maintaining his unbeaten record is important to Sanchez, his primary goal remains facing the best in the division. Yet, the heavyweight landscape is currently dominated by engagements involving top names like Tyson Fury, Oleksandr Usyk, Anthony Joshua, Filip Hrgovic, Joseph Parker, Zhilei Zhang, and Daniel Dubois, leaving little room for Sanchez to break into the upper echelon.


"I don’t think any of the fighters at the top are on my level," Sanchez asserted. "Whoever comes my way, I’ll be ready for them."

Despite these challenges, Sanchez remains patient and focused on honing his skills while awaiting his opportunity to compete against the elite. Expressing confidence in his abilities, Sanchez believes he has what it takes to overcome any opponent in the division.
