Augie Sanchez was a stellar fighter who had a good amatuer career and decent pro career. He defeated Floyd Mayweather in the amatuers in one of thier three amatuer bouts. He lost a chance to represent the US in the 96 olympics by losing to floyd mayweather in thier third and last fight in a clase descision.
He was considered a very hard puncher and his fight with naseem hamed proved so. He knocked Hamed down (although the ref did not rule it an official knockdown) and landed some hard bombs that shook naseem. Sanchez in return suffered a brutal KO loss at the hands of the Prince that left him to leave the ring on a stretcher. He did return, beating a shot Luisito Espinosa but losing by a 30 second KO to John Michael Johnson. Following this loss the Neveda State Athletic Commision revoked Augie Sanzhez boxing liscense.
