Manny Pacquiao is returning to the boxing ring after a two year hiatus to take on current WBA (Super) welterweight champion Yordenis Ugas at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and we have all the details on how you can watch Pacquiao vs Ugas on TV or online.
While boxing fans have been eagerly awaiting Pacquiao's return, the boxing legend and now senator in the Philippines was originally set to challenge Errol Spence Jr. who is currently undefeated for both his IBF and WBC welterweight titles. However, Spence had to pull out of the fight earlier this month after suffering a retinal tear in his left eye.
Now Yordenis Ugas has been moved up on the card from the co-main event to take on boxing's only eight-division world champion with just 11 days to prepare before the fight. In a press conference on Wednesday, Pacquiao reassured fans that he doesn't take Ugas lightly and that tonight's fight will be a great one.
Going into tonight's fight, 42-year-old Manny "Pac Man" Pacquiao has a fight record of 62 wins, 39 wins by knockout, seven losses and 2 draws with 71 total fights under his belt. The last time Pacquiao stepped in the ring back in July 2019, he knocked Keith Thurman down in the first round and became the oldest fighter ever to win a world title. However, he was later stripped of his championship and declared "champion in recess" due to inactivity as Ugas moved up to full champion.
Meanwhile 35-year-old Cuban boxer Yordenis "54 Milagros" Ugas currently has a fight record of 26 wins, 12 wins by knockout and four losses with a total of 30 fights under his belt. During his last fight back in September of 2020, Ugas fought Abel Ramos for the vacant WBA (Regular) welterweight title and won the fight with a split decision victory after 12 rounds.
Will Pacquiao be able to make history in the ring one more time despite not having fought in two years or will Ugas be able to stop one of boxing's biggest legends in his tracks.
