Errol Spence Jr vs Yordenis Ugas Betting Odds and Predictions

Errol Spence Jr. is the betting favorite going into his boxing match against Yordenis Ugás on April 16, but does that mean he’ll win?

The boxing unification match on Saturday, April 16 between champions Errol Spence Jr. and Yordenis Ugás gets the big fight treatment.

Spence vs. Ugás takes place at AT&T Stadium, the super stadium home of the Dallas Cowboys. It’s also near Spence’s hometown of Desoto, TX.

Spence puts his IBF and WBC welterweight titles on the line with Ugás’ WBA belt in a Winner Takes All Showtime pay-per-view event.

Spence (27-0, 21 KOs) has been the world welterweight champion for six years. He had a bad crash in 2019 but returned triumphantly in 2020 to defeat Danny Garcia by unanimous decision.

Spence was supposed to fight Manny Pacquiao, but a torn retina forced him to pull out of the fight. Ugás instead got the title shot with Pacquiao and made the most of it.

Ugás defeated Pacquiao by unanimous decision to become world champion for the first time. Here’s who’s winning this champion versus champion affair and why.

According to Wynnbet.com, Spence is the betting favorite with odds of -700. Despite his previous physical trauma and Ugás’ impressive performance against Pacquiao, oddsmakers are comfortable with Spence’s chances.

They have Ugás at +450 or slightly above a 4-1 underdog. That signals that pundits don’t expect Ugás to be incredibly competitive, but he shouldn’t be blown out either.

Ugás showed skill against Pacquiao, but his victory may have been marred by Pacquiao’s age. Pacquiao was 42 years old when he fought Ugás.

battle prediction

Oddsmakers usually see things clearly in their prefight assessments, and their numbers for Spence vs. Ugás make sense.

Expect Spence to convincingly defeat Ugás via unanimous decision. Ugás did well against an aged Pacquiao and he deserves credit.

Even at 42, Pacquiao was a boxing force, but he was well past his prime. Spence is still in his prime, despite hitting the number where fighters start trending downwards.

Spence’s health and body have taken extreme damage between his 10 years as a professional boxer, a car accident in 2019 and a recent torn retina. He will feel these traumas later in life and might already, but he is still a capable champion.

Spence looked exquisite against Garcia in 2020 and could do even better against Ugás. Ugás is not a massive puncher.

Spence rivals Ugás’ boxing skills and is a better athlete and stronger fighter. He can take Ugás down over time and should keep him busy in the championship rounds to secure a clear decision.

Expect Spence to exit AT&T Stadium with three of the four welterweight titles.
