Sanchez II crushes Soto

By Gabriel F. Cordero

In his biggest fight yet, featherweight Salvador Sanchez II added some substance to the phrase “The Legend Continues” with a surprising knockout at 2:02 of the second round over former Mexican national champion Jovanni “El Bambino” Soto in front of about 3,000 fans who packed the Deportivo Trabajadores del Metro in Mexico City.

“It was a great triumph,” said Sanchez II. “I’ve been learning a lot this year in Mexico and I’m managing to improve my technique and movement in the ring. During this time I’ve become a good fighter to get my dream of a world title opportunity. I’ll rest a few days, then return to the gym to look for a fight before closing 2011.”

Sanchez’s career II taken a different approach this year and boxing experts can see his progress in his last three matches. Sanchez is close to going from a Mexican prospect to a serious contender in the world ratings.

In the semifinal match, WBC #1 miniumweight Ganigan Lopez scored a TKO over Samuel Garcia.

In a great fight Edgar Puerta won by unanimous decision (93-97, 94-96, 94-96) over Saul Carreon.
