Sanchez vs Beltran breakdown and fight prediction
Alan Sanchez, the former Continental Americas Champion is a favorite going into the fight. He has more experience compared to his opponent, which experts think will give him an edge. This might be easier said than done, as Beltran comes into this fight with a solitary loss in his 18 professional bouts. That loss was also a result of an injury to Beltran’s eye, which caused the referee to halt the fight. Therefore, it is safe to say that no one has ever beaten him outright.

Sanchez comes into this fight on a two-fight win streak, both coming his way via split decision. On the other hand, Beltran is coming into this on the back of eight consecutive wins. His last opponent, Abraham Afful, couldn’t even last three minutes. Evidently, Beltran has a habit of finishing fights very early on. Moreover, Beltran has a knockout ratio of 55.56%, compared to 35.71% for Sanchez. This coupled with his youthful stride makes him a formidable foe for any fighter.
