It is time for the main event!!

The final showdown to decide the All-Time Great Featherweight Champion of the World!





We have reached the finals of this All-time Greats Featherweight tournament with two of the favourites fighting for the crown. Salvador Sanchez & Willie Pep. We are at Madison Square Garden on this hot summer evening in June! Madison Square Garden, one of the greatest venues in the world to host this fantastic match between two World Champions who have earned their positions as All-time great featherweight champions!




We started with 32 Champions and now we are down to 2!




Salvador Sanchez, hailing from Tianguistenco, Mexico, comes in with a record of (44, 1, 1) with 32 knockouts under his belt! Willie Pep from tConnecticut, USA, comes in with a distinguished record of (229, 11, 1) and 65 of those fights ending in knockouts!




As the fighters approach the ring, Salvador Sanchez, the pride of Mexico, is entering the ring, and followed by his trainer, Jimmy Montoya. The young Sanchez is smiling and looks relaxed as he ducks through the ropes.






The crowd is going wild as Sanchez enters the ring with his buoyant legs covering the canvas. He is bouncing energetically on his toes and shadow boxes in his corner, as he waits for the announcements to begin.





The fans are definitely giving these fighters a welcome they will never soon forget!

Willie Pep is approaching the ring accompanied by trainer Bill Gore and cut man, Paddy Colavito. As he enters, he also looks relaxed, but determined.




Johnny Addie, the ring announcer, is at the center of the ring for the introductions!!!




“Welcome to the All-time Greats Featherweight Tournament. This is the main event of the evening. 15 rounds. In the Featherweight class, from Hartford, Connecticut. His weight is 126lbs, wearing white trunks and a black stripe.  The Featherweight Champion of the World, Willie Pep."




Pep, always the gentleman, takes his bow to the crowd.




“And his opponent, from Tianguistenco, Mexico. His weight 126lbs.  Wearing gold trucks with a green stripe. The World Featherweight Champion, Salvador Sanchez.”



“The ring officials are assigned by the New York Athletic Commission and the judges are Harold Barnes and Joe Eppy. The referee is Arthur Donovan and here are your referee’s instructions Ladies & Gentleman!’



Arthur Donovan is taking the microphone, as the two fighters and their teams meet in center ring. “ I explained the rules to both of you in the dressing room. I expect a clean fight. Always obey my commands and defend yourselves at all times. Good luck to both of you. Shake hands and come out fighting boys.”

Both fighters are going to their assigned corners. As the fighters disrobe, Willie Pep is doing his usual dig-in shuffle in the corner, while Sanchez is banging his gloves together, while bouncing on his toes.


The fight is underway folks!!!
