Spence (27-0, 21 KOs) will snap a 17-month layoff following surgery on a detached retina when he defends his WBC and IBF titles at 147 pounds against Ugas (27-4, 12 KOs), the WBA winner, in the main event of a Premier Boxing winners event set to state on Showtime PPV (9p.m. ET).
Spence,Jr. (c) vs. Ugas (c) WBC, IBF, and WBA Welterweight Titles
The fight won’t only give farther clarity on the road toward a possible undisputed crown fight for the winner against unbeaten WBO champion Terence Crawford, it’s anticipated to cap a new power broker within the division.
The fact that the 35- time-old Ugas is in this position at all remains one of boxing’s stylish mortal interest stories. The former Cuban amateur star has endured everything from a dangerous retrieval of his home country to back-to- back losses in 2014 that appeared, at the time, to label him as a failed prospect.
