Tonight (Apr. 16) on Showtime PPV at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas is a welterweight unification matchup between WBC and IBF champion Errol Spence Jr (27-0, 21 KOs) and WBA champion Yordenis Ugas (27-4, 12 KOs).
This is Spence’s first fight since December 2020, when he defeated Danny Garcia in this same stadium to remain a unified champ. He was supposed to fight Manny Pacquiao in August 2021, but a retinal tear forced him out of the bout and that sprung Yordenis Ugas into a short notice main event spot. The Cuban defeated Pacquiao and sent him into retirement, taking his WBA belt in the process and setting himself up for a three-belt unification against ‘The Truth.’
This post will cover the main card, with full play-by-play for the headliner.
