10 sec. ago. Manny Pacquiao today come to the ring. We aren’t getting the megafight with Errol Spence, Jr., but we’re still getting a title fight that should offer some entertainment value. After Spence withdrew her name ten days ago due to an eye injury, WBA Super welterweight champ Yordenis Ugas was moved up from the co-main event to face Pacquiao.
The main card for Saturday’s Manny Pacquiao vs Yordenis Ugas fight gets underway at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas at 9 p.m. ET and the main event is expected to start sometime around 11:30 p.m. This is going to air on FOX Sports PPV and YouTube PPV. The card will cost $74.99.
The most intriguing storyline for this fight is the belt itself that is on the line. Pacquiao won the Super version of the WBA’s welterweight title in July 2019 when he beat Keith Thurman in a split decision. The WBA stripped Pacquiao of the title this past January due to inactivity. The organizing body then promoted Ugas into the Super belt. Ugas won the WBA’s Regular title in September 2020 when he beat Abel Ramos in a split decision.
That means Ugas won a title last held by Pacquiao without having to beat Pacquiao. Pacquiao-Spence would have been a significantly bigger fight for welterweight supremacy, but this is still interesting. Pacquiao was an underdog against Spence, but comes into this fight as a -360 favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook.
