The undefeated American with Jamaican roots Errol Spence Jr, “The Fact”, WBC and IBF welterweight champion, and the Cuban Yordenis Ugás, “54 Milagros”, World Boxing Affiliation (WBA) titleholder, will characteristic a combat that might be among the best of the yr from the technical perspective and that can go away the winner in possession of the three crowns of the class, this Saturday on the AT&T enviornment in Arlington.
Each fighters are characterised by their skill within the ring, which doesn’t make it straightforward to make a prediction as to who might be the winner, regardless that many of the specialists are in favor of Spence, 31, who surpasses the West Indian in knockout energy, which is mirrored of their data. In truth, Spence has 21 knockout victories in 27 performances, with no attracts or defeats, whereas Ugas, who can be 36 years outdated in 4 months, has gathered solely a dozen wins by knockout in 27 fights, with 4 defeats and no attracts.
The most effective and most related enterprise card of the Santiago de Cuba-born fighter is his victory by clear and unanimous determination over the legend Manny Pacquiao, who introduced his retirement after the setback, on August 21 final yr, in his first protection of the 147-pound title (66.678 kilos). In opposition to all odds, Ugas managed and dominated the PacMan with a really clever combat during which he made his good defensive fencing and precision in his punches, largely jabs, which is able to absolutely be the instruments he’ll use in opposition to Spence.
Nevertheless, specialists consider that this is not going to be sufficient to include Spence, one of many 10-12 greatest fighters on the earth at present. Nevertheless, “The Fact” might be affected by his 16-month break from the ring. He final defeated Californian Danny Garcia on factors in December-2020, a combat that marked his comeback after miraculously recovering from a horrible automotive accident: he crashed his Ferrari, which was wrecked, on a Dallas, Texas, avenue in October 2019, regardless that he was lucky to not undergo main bodily injury. A month earlier, Spence jr had defeated Shawn Porter in an enormous combat in protection of his WBC and IBF belts.
A prediction as to who might be the winner on this engaging contest factors to the American in both means, particularly due to his punching energy, though Ugas is not going to make issues straightforward for him.
It’s fairly doubtless that the winner will search a combat in opposition to Terence Crawford, WBO king and who many consider to be essentially the most full welterweight on the earth.
