Yordenis Ugas proved everyone wrong watching at home and the 17,438 in attendance that he is the true WBA champion by defeating The Goat Manny Pacquiao. Who knew that the torch would be passed to Yordenis Ugas. It was suppose to be Keith Thurman or Errol Spence or Bud Crawford but none the less is Ugas.
Manny Pacquiao 2 year layoff took an affect yet with those years off he still looked great,, but Ugas controlled range and distance and counter right hand was landing at will in the 2nd half of the fight.
Manny Pacquiao stated “i couldn’t make the adjustments.” Just like the Thurman fight, Pacquiao staggered Ugas in the 10th round but Ugas quickly regained his composure.
2 judges had 116-112 ugas and the other had 115-113. Yordenis Ugas in the post fight interview is ready to unified the title with Spence yet he wants him to be 100%. “i told you i was the real WBA champion.” Ugas shouted and he rightfully earned the right. The pride of Cuba prevails.
