Welcome back to another weekend fight preview! Due to current climate in the boxing, I’m only really covering the bigger the fights now. But will hopefully be able to cover a lot more in the future. I have also been posting content on the YouTube channel, where I will instead be posting my analysis and predictions on there going forward. Any likes or subscribes will really help out the channel!
On that note, we have another big fight this weekend as boxing hall of famer Manny Pacquaio (62-7-2) returns to the ring against the Cuban Yordenis Ugas (26-4-0).
The fight was meant to be against Errol Spence Jr, but he had to pull out due to detached eye retina. It’s a real shame, but I’m delighted that we will still get the chance to see Manny Pacquiao who surly can’t last at the level too much longer at 42. And with rumour that he might be running for president in the Philippines, this could be one of the last times we see the boxing legend step in the ring.
PacMan, comes into the fight two years after his last fight against Keith Thurman, against a fairly active Ugas who has had two fight since then. The fight will be for the WBA (Super) World Welterweight title.
Despite this I’m expecting a good fight which will no doubt go either way. Check out my analysis and prediction or Ugas tactical overview. I’ve also included my reaction to Manny Pacquiao training for the fight (before Ugas was announced!)
Enjoy the fight!
