Hang out all night with FanSided for round after round live updates of the boxing welterweight unification bout between Errol Spence Jr. and Yordenis Ugás.
Tonight on Showtime’s pay-per-view program, world welterweight champions Errol Spence Jr. and Yordenis Ugás meet in a highly anticipated boxing match.
Spence (27-0, 21 KOs) has a pristine record and holds the IBF and WBC belts. The 32-year-old from Desoto, TX doesn’t have to travel far as he fights Ugás at nearby AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX.
Ugás (27-4, 12 KOs) is the underdog, but that hasn’t stopped him from enjoying success in the past. After suffering back-to-back losses in 2014, Ugás steadily climbed back up in a crafted way.
Ugás reached the peak of his career in August when he defeated future Hall of Famer Manny Pacquiao to win the WBA title by unanimous decision.
Spence has been out of the ring since 2020 when he returned to face Danny Garcia after a serious car accident in 2019. He looked like himself but had to pull out of a scheduled matchup with Pacquiao because of a retinal tear.
Ugás fought Pacquiao instead.
The Spence vs. Ugás winner will have overwhelming control of a stacked welterweight division. An impressive win could also catapult them up the pound-for-pound rankings.
The main event is a treasure, but so is the undercard, which features three additional contests including Isaac Cruz, Jose Valenzuela, and Cody Crowley. Like Spence, they too are favored as winners, but have to hold their own against competition.
Showtime presents undercard action for free on their channel at 7 p.m. This part includes Radzhab Butaev vs. Eimantas Stanionis and Brandun Lee vs. Zachary Ochoa.
The pay-per-view begins at 9 p.m. ET for $74.99. Stay tuned to FanSided for live updates and highlights of the main event round by round.
It’s an exciting boxing night not to be missed.
