‘I’m the world’s best!’ Cuban dangerman waits for Joyce-Parker winner?

-

Frank Sanchez believes he is the ‘best heavyweight in the world’ and could be lying in wait for the Joe Joyce vs Joseph Parker winner.

The unbeaten Cuban sits at No 3 in the WBO rankings, just behind Joyce and Parker, and will be watching closely as his heavyweight rivals battle for the WBO interim title this weekend.

Oleksandr Usyk holds the WBO belt, along with the WBA and IBF titles, but the Ukrainian has been linked with future fights against Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder, which could mean that Sanchez becomes an immediate threat to Joyce or Parker.
