Lost In The Shuffle Of “The Hustle”;
Ace Prospect Evan Anthony Sanchez

By William Trillo

That KO in the main event Friday night at the Honda Center does not have Knockout of the Year written all over it as some have concluded. For that matter it wasn’t even the Knockout of the Night. That distinction goes to Evan Anthony Sanchez who steamrolled Daniel Evangelista Jr. in two short and very impressive rounds.

Unfortunately, many did not see the performance because it was unceremoniously buried on the back end of the card that was built around boxing’s undisputed leader in Instagram followers.

In his 4 minutes and 52 seconds of work Sanchez displayed all the skills of seasoned veteran. Great jab, nice footwork, sharp accurate punches to both the body and head…and oh that left hook. This is the kid to keep an eye on.

The first time I saw Sanchez was at The Belasco theater `in November of 2019. Here’s what we wrote about his fight that night:

Welterweight Evan Anthony Sanchez (6-0, 5 KO’s) opened the show with an eye-catching KO over Hector Hernandez (2-2, 1 KO). Sanchez wasted no time as he jumped on his foe immediately with powerful blows. The shellacking took a mere 29 seconds before Sanchez dropped Hernandez forcing the ref to bring a rapid halt to the action. Boxing fans might want to keep an eye on the southpaw Sanchez, he looks to have a promising career.

Obviously, we here at Pound4Pound think Sanchez is an Ace.

We are looking forward to seeing more of him in the future and we highly recommend boxing fans do the same.
