Frank Sanchez vs Joey Dawejko is a great crossroads fight for both men, as the WBC Continental Americas heavyweight championship is on the line.

Sanchez has the opportunity to continue ascending the heavyweight hierarchy and extend his unbeaten streak to 15, Dawejko, a veteran of over thirty fights with some title fight experience to his credit, will try to end it.

This bout is one of several slated for this card that aim to highlight different tiers of the heavyweight division.

Frank Sanchez vs Joey Dawejko Odds

Fighter Odds
Frank Sanchez -1100
Joey Dawejko +650

Odds taken Mar 4th.

This fight is slated to be a ten-round televised opener and is good exposure for whoever wins. The Cuban prospect will be fighting with a new trainer and a different camp location for the first time since Sanchez transitioned to the professional ranks as an amateur on the Cuban circuit.

Sanchez is now training in San Diego with Eddy Reynoso who has been a big part in the rise of Canelo  Alvarez. It will be curious to see if this fast, athletic heavyweight is able to introduce any new wrinkles to his game.

Continental Crossroads Fight

Dawejko recently overcame a three-fight losing skid as he defeated Rodney Hernandez via unanimous decision in July 2019.

Still though, he has come up winless in eleven of 31 pro outings and has had his more lackluster performances against opponents that represented that next tier of fighter. Conversely, Sanchez scored an emphatic stoppage victory over Victor Brisbal a couple of fights ago.

In his last outing, Sanchez would defeat Jack Mulowayi via unanimous decision in defense of his WBO NABO heavyweight championship. The reach advantage is a glaringly notable statistic in this fight here.

Sanchez has an eight-inch reach advantage over Dawejko, which spells disaster for the Pennsylvanian pugilist. Also, both men have 11 KOs but for Sanchez they’re across 14 wins while Dawejko has that amount of stoppages in 20 wins.

Many are prognosticating that Sanchez is a future heavyweight champion and will play a role in re-igniting the division for the generation to come. Though Dawejko only has one stoppage loss amongst his seven defeats, I see Sanchez putting him away. I think Frank Sanchez gets the stoppage victory inside of six rounds.

Pick: Frank Sanchez (-1100)
