“For the WBC, Salvador Sanchez is one of the best, a legend and a good example for many fighters,” said WBC President Jose Sulaiman. “His death was a big blow to Mexico and to boxing. He was very young and did his best during his 10 world title fights, full of emotion and great shows. We miss him very much and this is a mandatory event to remember him after 30 years.”
