Heavyweights will replace the recently-cancelled rematch between Peter Quillin and Caleb Truax on the Erislandy Lara vs Ramon Alvarez undercard on August 31 in Minneapolis, MN.


Frank Sanchez Faure (12-0, 10 KO) will face 2004 Olympian Victor Bisbal (23-3, 17 KO) in a 10-round heavyweight showdown affair televised by FOX.

Who?

Casual fans, and even some hardcore junkies, may not be familiar with Sanchez or Bisbal.

But, before you start shaking your head, the 27 year old Sanchez is the No. 2 ranked Cuban heavyweight by BoxRec (Luis Ortiz is No. 1).

Cuba produces a wealth of talent so status as that nation's second best heavyweight speaks volumes. The man has skills.

At 12-0 with 10 KOs, Sanchez turned pro in September 2017 and is fresh off a July TKO win over the well-traveled Jason Bergan (27-16-2).

  • Fast fact: This fight will serve as Sanchez's 13th in 23 months. He's fighting on an average of once every other month.

So, who is Victor Bisbal?

Hailing from Puerto Rico, the 6'4" Bisbal competed as a super heavyweight at the 2004 Athens Olympic Games, boasting a fine amateur record of 60-10 in the end.

He turned pro in 2005 and won his first 21 of 22 bouts before being derailed by Magomed Abdusalamov (then 18-0, 18 KO) in 2013. He then took a two year hiatus and was unwisely matched against a surging Dominic Breazeale in 2015. The 2012 USA heavyweight Olympian would KO him in 4. Since then, Bisbal has rebounded with two TKO wins in as many fights.

In fact, in December the 39 year old Puerto Rican stopped the formidable Edson Roberto Dos Santos Borges (then 30-3-2) inside the distance.

Sanchez vs Bisbal has the makings of an interesting affair. And if Frank Sanchez wins impressively, don't be surprised to hear his name mentioned among the young lions of the division very soon.
