The WBA welterweight title fight has been set.
Manny Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39 KOs) weighed in slightly under the welterweight limit for this fight against Yordenis Ugas (26-4, 12 KOs), the “champ” notwithstanding Pacquiao’s win over Keith Thurman. The WBA elevated Ugas last year for political reasons, but Pacquiao was never reinstated when the WBA declared him champion during the break. We’re not going to go into this any further.
In any event, after the WBC and IBF Champ was forced to remove with the retinal tear, which he had been on since operation, Ugas is replacing Errol Spence Jr. This is still a very compelling match between Pacman and Ugas (but much less glamorous) who is a good boxer and yet may surprise the Philippine legend.
