Manny Pacquiao vs. Yordenis Fight Week has hit Las Vegas (Photo: Hustle Boss)

This weekend, from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV, eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39 KO’s) faces off with WBA welterweight champion Yordenis Ugas (26-4, 12 KO’s) in a FOX pay per view attraction.
Ugas, the decorated Cuban amateur who has been on a great run as a professional, accepted the fight on an eleven-day notice, filling in for an injured Errol Spence Jr., as the IBF/WBC champion from Dallas was the original dance partner for Manny. Spence suffered a torn retina in training and is taking the steps towards his recovery as he now watches momentarily from the sidelines.
The show goes on, and we certainly have a unique fight on our hands. Surely Spence will be waiting in the wings for a shot at this weekend’s victor.
Pacquaio vs. Ugas goes down Saturday night. Check below for some fight week highlights.
