Later tonight, inside of the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV, eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao and WBA welterweight champion Yordenis Ugas will headline a FOX pay per view event.

Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39 KO’s) was originally slated to face Errol Spence Jr., only to see the fight slip away after the Dallas native and reigning IBF/WBC welterweight champion suffered a torn retina eleven days before the August 21 target date. Ugas (26-4, 12 KO’s) is not your oridinary replacement, however, and holds wins over Omar Figueroa Jr., Abel Ramos, Jamal James, and Bryant Perrella, while also arguably winning his March 2019 battle with Shawn Porter (Ugas lost a split-decision).

There isn’t much not to like with former world champion Keith Thurman.

Thurman, the former holder of the WBA and WBC welterweight titles, has yet to step back inside of the ring since suffering his first career loss in July of 2019 in Las Vegas. In that contest, Thurman faced off with eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao, and was dropped in the first round and fell behind early. Thurman rallied late, but lost on the cards after 12 spirited and competitive rounds.

Later tonight, Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39 KO’s) will face off with WBA welterweight champion Yordenis Ugas (26-4, 12 KO’s) inside of the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Thurman knows all too well what Ugas is up against and has a very unique perspective of what to expect when the bell rings for round one.

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.

On Friday afternoon, Sep. 14, lineal middleweight world champion Gennady Golovkin and former two-division world champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez faced off briefly following their weigh-in. And while the face off didn’t last long, you could see the animosity in the air as Alvarez approached Golovkin, only to be restrained moments later as things nearly erupted.

Both men do appear to be in great shape. Golovkin hit the scales weighing 159.6 pounds and was noticeably calm and collected, while Alvarez came in weighing 159.4 pounds moments later.

The tensions are high heading into this weekend’s second encounter and the lineal champion from Kazakhstan isn’t rattled.

It’s another fight week in Las Vegas, as former two-division world champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and WBA/WBC and lineal middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin have made their official grand arrivals to the city. Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KO’s) and Golovkin (38-0-1, 34 KO’s) fought to a highly-controversial split-draw one year ago inside of the T-Mobile Arena, the same place where the rematch will go down this Saturday.

“I’m bothered by all the stupid things they’ve been saying,” Alvarez stated to the press after his arrival.

Lineal middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin worked out for the press and thousands of fans on Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles, at the Banc of California Stadium. Golovkin (38-0-1, 34 KO’s) will face former two-division world champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (48-1-2, 34 KO’s) on Sep. 15 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev. on HBO pay per view in one of the biggest fights of the year.

There has been a lot of back-and-forth banter between the two camps over the past few months. Golovkin and his trainer Abel Sanchez have had plenty of words for Canelo following his failed drug test back in February ahead of their scheduled rematch that was set for May, as the Mexican superstar tested positive for the performance-enhancing drug Clenbuterol. Alvarez was suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, saw the May rematch cancelled, and Golovkin instead went on to defeat Vanes Martirosyan instead, in Southern California.

This past Satuday night, Sep. 16, inside of the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev., IBF/WBA/WBC middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin retained his titles with a hard-fought and controversial split-draw with former two-division world champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez.

It was an action-packed showdown pitting the strength, power, and disciplined attack of Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KO’s) against the savvy and cunning Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KO’s), who boxed, moved, and countered more than we have ever seen him. After twelve rounds, scores of 118-110 for Canelo, 115-113 for Golovkin, and 114-114 saw the match end in a split-draw, with both men believing they have done enough to secure the victory.

Moments ago, inside of the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev., undefeated featherweight contender Joseph “Jo Jo” Diaz remained undefeated with a twelve-round unanimous decision victory over late replacement Rafael Rivera, who was filling in for undefeated Jorge Lara.

Diaz (25-0, 13 KO’s) is hoping to land a crack at WBC champion Gary Russell Jr., and he did what was needed from his end to handily defeat Rivera (25-1-2, 16 KO’s), over twelve rounds. Shortly after the final bell, scores of 120-108 and 119-109 twice were read in Diaz’s favor, as he very well could be facing Russell in the near future.
