For the first time in two years, boxing legend Manny Pacquiao will be making his way back to the ring tonight (August 21st) to take on WBA welterweight champion, Yordenis Ugas. The T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada will be the backdrop, via FITE.tv with FOX PPV being the other way to watch. Bloody Elbow is here to bring you the betting odds for this return of a former eight-division champ who is taking on someone looking to claim his biggest name to date.
Surprise, surprise… the bookies are siding with one Pac-man over a much less accomplished Ugas here. At an oh so steep cost of -430, gamblers can lay the price on Manny. Doing so with a $100 could see a possible total payout of $123.26. Or, bettors can take the underdog price on Yordenis at a value of +300. That means throwing a $100 bet his way could potentially see a return of $400 altogether.
The bookies foresee this match needing all 12-rounds to decide. victor. The prop bet ‘Fight goes to decision’ is posted up with a favored moneyline of -174, with a +124 comeback on the ‘Fight doesn’t go to decision’ option. It almost goes without saying that Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39 KOs) has been labeled as more likely to produce a finish than the less tenured Ugas (26-4, 12 KOs). The proposition ‘Pacquiao wins by TKO/KO or DQ’ sits in underdog territory at +175, with ‘Ugas wins by TKO/KO or DQ’ getting very little respect up at an altitude of +1500.
A decision is favored after all, but Pac-man on the scorecards still possesses a plus line. At a value of +120, ‘Pacquiao wins by decision’ can be had, or going back the other way, ‘Ugas wins by decision’ is on deck at a fluffy dog value of +390. For fun, the prop bet ‘Fight is a draw’ can be gambled on at an astronomical value of +2300.
