HEAVYWEIGHT prospect Frank Sanchez reckons he'd 'easily' KO Tyson Fury.
The rising star, 29, continued his ascent up the ranks this past weekend with a unanimous decision victory over veteran Christian Hammer.
And the 20-0 Cuban Flash is confident he'd dethrone WBC king Fury if given the opportunity.
Sanchez said of Fury: "I knock him out easily. He has no boxing skills."
The Eddy Reynoso-trained Sanchez reckons he'd do an even bigger number of unified heavyweight king Oleksandr Usyk.
He said of a potential showdown with the Ukrainian southpaw: “Even easier.
"Usyk has movement, but he doesn’t have the technique that I do."
Sanchez's confidence is shared by his team-mate and pound-for-pound king Canelo Alvarez, who was ringside for his routine victory over Hammer.

The four-weight world champion told George Ebro: “He will be world champion.
"He will sweep everyone in the heavyweight division because he is a special talent."
Sanchez said of the Mexican cheering him on: "I was very motivated by seeing Canelo supporting me at ringside.
"This must be a definitive year for my aspirations to become a world champion.
"This was a tough opponent, but my dominance of the ring and my skills were too much for him and they will be for anyone who stands in my way."
Sanchez has relished every minute of his training with the undisputed super-middleweight king, saying: “Canelo is an absolute stud.
"He’s very serious and very respectful both with me and his work ethic.
“The biggest lesson that I learned from him is the fact that it doesn’t matter whether you’re training or you’re inside the ring, that you got to be serious about your craft, that you got to follow it with passion.
“That’s the main thing that I took away from being around Canelo, someone that I appreciate a lot.”
