Sanchez is coming off his two career-best wins, both upsets, in his last two fights, and is no stranger to taking a fight on short notice. He took his last fight, on August 13, 2004, against world-ranked contender J.C. Candelo, literally on last-minute notice. Eddie wasn’t confirmed to fight until the morning of the show, but won a 12-round unanimous decision that night. The win earned him a place in the world rankings at IBF No. 10 and WBC No. 14. Two months earlier in June, he scored a sixth-round TKO win against world-ranked Jose Celaya.
