Errol Spence Jr. vs Yordenis Ugas — Main Event Preview

Errol "The Truth" Spence Jr. (27-0) is the WBC and IBF welterweight champion. Spence is consistently ranked near the top of any serious boxing pound-for-pound list as an undefeated fighter and five-year world champ out of Long Island, N.Y. While this is his sixth title defense and second title unification fight, it has been hard for Spence to find a real challenge. Spence could have had even more title defenses, but he lost a year after crashing his Ferrari in a terrible accident in October 2019. Spence was also set for a career-defining fight against the legendary Manny Pacquiao in August of 2021, only to suffer a tear of his left retina that forced him to pull out.

Now Spence faces the replacement fighter who beat Pacquiao. If Spence wins, there will be tons of questions about what he should do next. Fans and experts have been wanting him to face WBO champion Terence Crawford for years in a mega fight that could produce an undisputed champion. However fighters like Vergil Ortiz Jr., Conor Benn and "Boots" Ennis loom as other potential foes. But none of this matters unless Spence takes care of business against Ugas.

Yordenis "54 Milagros" Ugas (27-4) is the WBA (Super) welterweight champion. He is much more than just the last fighter to face and beat Manny Pacquiao. He is a Cuban-born boxer who has represented the island nation in international competition, winning a bronze medal at the 2008 Olympic games. After struggling early in his career, Ugas has been on a tear, going 12-1 in his last 13 fights. His only loss then was his first title shot against Shawn Porter, but when he got his second title chance he made it count.

Ugas beat Abel Ramos to win the WBA regular title, then cemented his status as the Super WBA champ in his unanimous decision win over Pacquaio. He relies on his jab, but with the reach advantage belonging to Spence it will be interesting to see what strategy Ugas brings to this fight.

Errol Spence Jr. is a solid favorite to win this championship unification fight at -550 odds.
