Unbeaten bantamweight prospect Saul Sanchez (10-0, 6 KOs) headlines his first event this Friday, Oct. 19, from the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, California.
Sanchez faces Fernando Saavedra (7-5, 3 KOs) of Mexico in the "Path to Glory" 8-round main event. Sanchez, who fights out of northern Los Angeles, but trains with Joel Diaz in Indio, Calif., is ready for the limelight.
"This is what I’ve been working toward this year," said Sanchez, who turned 21-years-old in June. "I want to keep getting better. I’m always in the gym and all the work is paying off."
Sanchez is coming off back-to-back knockout wins in June and August. Nicknamed "The Beast" for his intimidating fighting style, Sanchez plans to put on a show in his first showcase event.
"I think I’m always in exciting fights," said Sanchez, managed by Steve Martini. "I like to cut off the ring and just go after guys. I don’t think I’m changing that anytime soon."
