Frank Sanchez Massacres Christian Hammer to Claim a Shutout UD Win!

When presented with the challenge of Christian Hammer (26-9, 16 KO’s), undefeated Cuban heavyweight Frank “The Cuban Flash” Sanchez (20-0, 13 KO’s) continued to shine. Sanchez achieved his feat by thoroughly outclassing his Romanian to claim a decisive unanimous decision win. The win comes directly after his unanimous decision victory over highly-touted contender Efe Ajagba.

The 2015 Cuban National champion put his educated hands and cerebral feet to good use versus Hammer. It was easy to see why the Cuban Flash is ranked #5 (WBO) and #5 (WBC). It is also easy to see why Team Sanchez is eagerly looking forward to 2022.

With his standings, he could reasonably contract prizefights with Joseph Parker, Joe Joyce, Andy Ruiz Jr and Deontay Wilder. It will be telling to see what the talented fighter does in 2022.


The opening period of the fight saw both men feeling one another out while trying to establish their punching range. Sanchez moved well and began going to the body straight out the gate.

In the third round, the Cuban Flash appeared to hurt Hammer to the body with a hard left hook. From that point, early in the round, the Romanian spent the majority of the period in retreat. Prior to that, it was Hammer who was consistently coming forward providing the overt pressure.

Over the next few rounds, the fight settled into a familiar groove of Hammer pursuing an elusive Sanchez and absorbing a great deal of sharp, accurate counter shots in the process. Admittedly, Hammer dealt with the abuse in serviceable fashion. However, he was handily losing round after round.

There is argument to be made that the Cuban Flash could’ve stepped up his own activity to inject a bit more excitement to the contest. Yet, given how comfortably he was winning, Sanchez clearly felt no need to apply pressure to the gas pedal.

Following the final round, which did not deviate from the previous periods, Sanchez was awarded a predictable shutout unanimous decision victory.
