Heard this one was a classic with a devastating finish, what a shame the winner lost his life in a tradic accident soon after.

Made me depressed just to watch it because Salvador really was a terrific boxer. He knew how to use the ring, he knew how to keep his distance, and most importantly he knew how to use the jab. The jab is really how you can tell how good a boxer actually is (most of the times)the jab is what sets up combinations, openings, power punches, keeps your opponents off balance, and most importantly lets you control the tempo.

It really is a shame that Salvador died in a car wreck a month after this. There were rumors of him facing great fighter such as Wilfredo Gomez and more importantly Alexis Arguello after this match. Another shame about his death is that it unfortunately hurts his standing on the greatest of all time list. Personally I think Salvador would have been the greatest featherweight ever (surpassing even Willie Pep) had he not died.

There were featherweights who would have given him trouble though, he would probably lose 2 out of 5 against Armstrong, I give him 3 out of 5 against Pacquiao. I give him 3 out of 5 against Mayweather. I can't picture Salvador getting knocked out in any of these matches though, as he took his share of shots against the unbelievable puncher Wilfredo Gomez, and got hit solidly by another good puncher in Anzumah Nelson.

That's the basic gist of Salvador. Basically he was an unbelievable boxer whose legend was hurt significantly by his death.

Did I tell you yet that a former world champ is one of my new trainers? He was the flyweight champion in 2007-2009. I probably won't spell this right but his name was Kahamarion Anmezulah who had a record of 15-3-1. I always wanted to speak to a former champion and now I have one as a trainer!

That's cool man, nobody better to teach a young boxer than somebody who has been there themselves. I was once trained by a former lightweight British amateur champion but I have never been trained by or met a world champion. I think you had mentioned it once when we were talking about Canelo vs Lara.

You speak very highly of Sanchez, I had actually never heard of him, I have good knowledge on fighters of this century but I really need to learn more about boxing history like you do. I'm quite busy nowadays but if I have time I might watch a few of his fights and see if I agree with you. I'm curious what is your opinion on Chris Eubank Jr? Do you reckon the only middleweight or super middleweight in the world that can beat him is Andre Ward like his dad says? I'm not too sure, British fans are dying to see him fight his bitter rival who is the European champion and he has just backed out of the fight but I'm not sure if he chickened out or if it was purely about money.

I like Eubank Jr. mostly because him and his style remind me a lot of his excellent father. I believe it's too early to call him invincible as there really is a lot that we haven't seen from him as we really haven't seen him in too many big or important matches. However you really can't judge him off those matches because in each one of them he did what he needed to do and win convincingly. I do believe he'll beat Saunders this December as he has everything from speed to power to knock him out and I'll go with Eubank TKO in 7.

Sorry it took so long to reply to this. I'm beginning to write my first book so my mind's been elsewhere lately.

No worries, I hope your book writing goes well for you.

I agree with everything you have said and if I had to predict what would happen I would say a Eubank win by TKO but later than round 7. To be fair to Saunders he is the European champion and boxnation subscribers have watched him fight hard to win that title and previous titles, yet Eubank has been extremely disrespectful to his opponent, let's not forget that all Saunders's opponents have been way better that Eubank's. I have already noticed flaws in how Eubank uses his guard and it is okay for him to do it against a nobody who is fighting an 8 rounder but Saunders's combination throwing style could cause him problems in that department. I hope Eubank loses, it would reach him a valuable lesson, another reason I hope Billy Joe wins is that Eubank is in my opinion a lot better than Quillin and Saunders could have beaten Quillin for sure, this would have won him a world title and a lot more money than fighting Eubank who is far more risky. He is sacrafiaing some money, risking his unbeaten record, and turning down the opportunity of fighting for a world title fight just so that the boxing fans are happy. Don't get me wrong Eubank is a phenomenal fighter and I do think he will win.

Are you writing about boxing?

No, but thank you for asking. I've always wanted to write a horror novel as that's my favorite type of writing. I've written plenty of short stories of it in the past and now I'm starting my own book. I will say one thing though, if I ever decide to turn professional then I guarantee you that I will write a book about boxing.

Hey Zoe,

Herrera vs Provodnikov
Dawson vs Karpency
