Heavyweight and WBC/IBF champion heavyweight champion, Errol Spence Jr. is trying to add the WBA ‘super’ belt ‘Yordenis Ugas’ to his collection this weekend. So who wins? Boxing Social’s team of intrepid writers and fortune tellers tries to predict the outcome.
Something lingers when I think of Errol Spence after the accident. I can’t help but feel that he’s not the fighter he was before the incident, and despite looking solid in his final game against Danny Garcia, I wonder when he’ll see. want from a fitness or sharpness perspective.
On the other hand, Ugas only improved. He’s gone from awkward, awkward contender to champion, and he looks like he’s enjoying the ride. Beating Pacquiao is supposed to be an annoyance – but is it really? Or does boxing’s continued love affair with the Senator make us biased?
Ugas possesses a nasty style of play, finishing, staying out of range, picking moments and stealing rounds. Coached by Ismael Salas, he will be fit and ready to go. to work and punish.
I like Spence to win against UD, but wouldn’t be surprised if Ugas gave him a scary loss midway through. – Craig Scott
It was a PBC weight class fight between two of the top guys at 147lbs. If you feel you’ve seen this one before, you’re right. Since 2016, there have been eight fights involving two of them: Spence, Ugas, Pacquiao, Keith Thurman, Shawn Porter and Danny Garcia. With the exception of Spence-Garcia, all of those bouts ended in a decision of unity or division. This will make no difference, Spence passed the decision. – John A. MacDonald
Ugas’ counter-attacking style provides a really fun challenge for Spence. How the American has recovered, both physically and psychologically, from his latest health scare is sure to be under the microscope, especially given his latest admission that he I’m suffering from PTSD from that horrible car accident. I can see the first 6-8 innings being a tight and difficult relationship as Ugas keeps it close on the scoreboard. In the end, however, Spence’s southern punch, high work rate, and exceptional body punch (not to mention an enthusiastic Texas crowd) were enough to break the Cuban rhythm and reward Spence by a unanimous decision. – Phil Rogers
