Cuban heavyweight prospect Frank Sanchez remained unbeaten, moving to 15-0 (11 KO) with a wide decision win over Philadelphia veteran Joey Dawejko.

Scores were 98-92, 100-90, and 100-90. Bad Left Hook had the fight 100-90 on two separate scorecards, both for Sanchez.

The 27-year-old Sanchez didn’t exactly light up the screen here, but he was able to box and move effectively all night against the 29-year-old Dawejko, using his height and length advantages nicely against the short, squat American. Dawejko was eventually reduced to all but begging Sanchez to stand still, trying to goad him into a firefight, but the Cuban didn’t fall for it and just kept cruising. It’s tough to even figure the two rounds one judge gave to Dawejko, though maybe you can give him the 10th if you’re being kind.

Sanchez is a solid-looking heavyweight prospect, but he’s still yet to really shine in any of his fights, and he may lack the dynamic abilities of someone capable of reaching the top of the division. That said, the top of the division could look a lot different in two or three years, and he’s certainly started the way he’s wanted to in his pro career.
