Sanchez could soon find himself in line for a shot at Fury’s WBC title

Sanchez was the co-main event for Fury vs Wilder III, beating Efe Ajagba by unanimous decision to extend his record to 19-0.

And Borao believes Sanchez is the man who will inflict a first defeat on the unbeaten Fury, who’s record currently stands at 31 victories and one draw.

He told Sky Sports: “Frank Sanchez is one of the most active high-profile fighters today.

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

“His rise has been extraordinary, as well as his undeniable talent. I think Frank Sanchez beats Tyson Fury today.”

The Gypsy King is yet to confirm his next opponent after sensationally knocking out Deontay Wilder in October.

 

But he could find himself in a bout with Sanchez soon if the 6ft4in ‘Cuban Flash’ continues on his current trajectory.

Borao went on to say: “At Frank’s current pace, I have no doubt he will become No 1 contender in short order.

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

Sanchez returns to the ring against Carlos Negron on New Year’s Day as he works his way towards a world title shot.

Fury meanwhile is expected fight again in the spring of next year.

Dillian Whyte, 33, and Joe Joyce, 36, are among the contenders to have called out The Gypsy King.

Fans are desperate for a unification bout between Fury and the winner of Anthony Joshua v Oleksandr Usyk II, with that possibly on the cards for the end of 2022.

But Fury himself has called for AJ to step aside and let him fight Ukrainian Usyk.

Although recently speaking on his next opponent, Fury said: “I’m not really interested, because to be honest it doesn’t really make much sense who I want to fight at this moment.

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