Re-energized Sanchez battles unbeaten Russian fighter on July 14
Thu, 21 Jun 2018
ERNIE Sanchez feels like a renewed fighter. And come July 14, Sanchez looks to make a lot of noise in what he considers a fresh start as he battles undefeated Russian boxer Evgeny Chuprakov in Ekaterinburg, Russia.
Sanchez and Chuprakov will lock horns in a 10-round duel for the WBO Inter-Continental super featherweight belt.
Sanchez is keen on putting up an impressive showing in just his second fight under the Sanman Promotions.
“I am very excited to have another opportunity to fight abroad. This will be my second fight under Sanman Promotions and I feel like a brand new fighter. New environment, new trainer. I feel like I’m a different fighter now,” said Sanchez.
Sanchez said he realized that being part of Sanman Promotions takes a lot of hard work.
“It’s also my first time in a long while to have an eight-week camp and that makes me very confident for my upcoming fight,” said Sanchez, who debuted as a Sanman fighter last April 28 that saw him scoring a knockout win over Noel Adelmita.
Sanchez faces an uphill battle against Chuprakov, who has yet to lose in 19 fights and has scored 10 knockout victories.
Sanchez has piled up 18 wins, nine by knockouts, and has 11 losses.
He may possess a not so impressive record but Sanchez cannot be taken lightly, warned Jim Claude Manangquil, CEO of Sanman Promotions.
“People might underestimate Sanchez because of his record but we know his ability especially if he is in good shape and in his real weight division of super featherweight, he will be a problem for anybody,” said Manangquil.
