Salvador Sanchez Tribute One of the most respected and talented boxers of the early 1980s was Mexico's world featherweight champion Salvador Sanchez. Sanchez was killed in an automobile accident in the summer of 1982 at age 23. Here's a tribute, narrated by Howard Cosell, that aired on ABC's Wide World of Sports shortly after Sanchez's death.

Who has owned a restaurant the longest? Here's a challenge for you. In my community there is a restaurant called Ramon's Cactus Patch, and it's been owned and operated by Ramon Sanchez since 1938. I admit that most of the work is done today by his son Roque (pronounced Rocky) and his daughter Ramona, but Ramon, in his mid-nineties, is still the boss! Can you come up with a restaurant still operating with the same owner for a longer time? Not just the same family, but the same individual. The Cactus Patch has been in its present location since 1962.

Longest-owned restaurant in America question mark Okay, friends, I'm going to try this again, because I just found out that the reason no one could access this post was because of the question mark in the title. Here's a challenge for you. In my community there is a restaurant called Ramon's Cactus Patch, and it's been owned and operated by Ramon Sanchez since 1938. I admit that most of the work is done today by his son Roque (pronounced Rocky) and his daughter Ramona, but Ramon, in his mid-nineties, is still the boss!

Salvador Sanchez Had Mexico's Salvador Sanchez lived longer, he may have gone down as the greatest featherweight champion in boxing history. As an unheralded 21-year-old, Sanchez upset popular Danny Lopez to win the WBC version of the featherweight title on February 2, 1980. Combining punching power and boxing skill, Sanchez defeated all comers and became a fixture on network TV--a rarity for a Mexican fighter. He defeated Lopez in a rematch and a young Azumah Nelson, who would become a great champion himself. On July 21, 1982, Sanchez was killed in a single-vehicle automobile crash in Mexico. He was 23 years old. His pro record was 44-1-1.

Death of Salvador Sanchez - 1982 Boixing lost a terrific champion way too early in the summer of 1982. Salvador Sánchez of Mexico was well on his way to becoming the greatest featherwight boxer of all time. Sánchez was 44-1-1 in 46 career fights. He had upset popular Danny (Little Red ) Lopez in February 1980 to win the WBC version of the 126-pound title. He went on to defend it numerous times in the next 30 months. Sánchez was a skilled boxer/puncher who could wear down an opponent with accurate, sharp, stinging blows. He was, not surprisingly, a national hero in Mexico. Sadly Sánchez was killed in a sngle-car crash in Mexico on August 12, 1982. He was just 23 years old. At the time he was training for a rematch with the tough Juan Laporte. Sánchez had beaten Laporte in December 1980. Sánchez's last fight was a skillful 15-round knockout of Azumah Nelson in New York City's Madison Square Garden about three weeks before the fatal car accident. Sánchez crashed on the early morning while driving his Porsche 928 sports car along the Mexican federal highway from Santiago de Querétaro to San Luis Potosí, dying instantly. Sánchez was posthumously inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1991.
