Frank Sanchez finds out the name of a new opponent!

After concluding 2021 with two victories, of which the one he achieved over Efe Ajagba in October is particularly big and significant, Frank Sanchez (19-0, 13 KO) will open 2022 on its first day. The 29-year-old Cuban is part of the PBC on FOX program, led by a match between Luis Ortiz and Charles Martin.

He was supposed to fight there against Carlos Negron, a Puerto Rican with relatively good professional references so far. Still, problems arose, as Negron received a positive COVID-19 test just days before the match. That, of course, meant his cancellation.

The organizers were ready to do so and proved to be very good in their work since as a substitute opponent they actually brought a more resonant and very famous name. Sanchez will be opposed in the ring by Christian Hammer.

Hammer (26-8, 16 KO) is a 34-year-old German boxer originally from Romania, who has been a well-known name for years, primarily on the European but also on the global heavyweight scene. In fact, he has lately become that stepping stone between the middle and highest ranks of opponents and it is not easy to list all the big names he has met.


Hughie Fury, Tony Yoka and Luis Ortiz are just the last among them. That his eight defeats did not come in any way is evidenced by the fact that BoxRec still ranks him in a very high 28th place among the world's heavyweights.

The victory against him is certainly very valuable. It would be interesting to find out how the organizers managed to get to Hammer in such circumstances, as we often hear boxers of his status refusing matches against upcoming potentials or asking simply too high fee from a promoter.

Sanchez is the 15th heavyweight in the world according to the above-mentioned source, he has already announced that in 2022 he intends to fight for one of the world titles. While some other heavyweight potentials have stagnated in the last two years, he has built his name and is actually currently considered an upcoming star.

At the event on the first day of this year, they will have the opportunity to confirm this. We can expect a great fight between these two fighters, and nothing but a spectacle It will not be easy for any of them given the qualities they possess, but it will be shown who is more prepared
