If you are into the boxing scene in Las Vegas and in search of a diamond in the rough, perhaps Cuba’s Yordenis Ugas might be worth some of your time.
The 31-year old welterweight contender carries a 19-3 record with nine knockouts, yet it has been his recent run of success that has caught my eye. In August of last year, returning from a two-year layoff, Ugas upset previously-undefeated Jamal James over ten rounds in Verona, New York.
