ERROL SPENCE returns to welterweight action where he will be taking on Yordenis Ugas in a intriguing title bout THIS SATURDAY at the AT&T Stadium.
The truth was forced to pull out of an highly anticipated clash with boxing icon Manny Pacquiao last year having suffered a fractured orbital bone in training camp.
Errol Spence brutally beat Danny Garcia in 2019 to retain his IBF and WBC titles
Which came off the back of a horrific car accident in 2019 followed by a convincing onslaught over Danny Garcia in 2020 where the American won by a unanimous decision.
However, Ugas stepped in Spence’ place to fight Pacquiao and he swayed the judges with a fine performance to claim the WBA crown.
But now, the two champions will battle it out in Arlington, Texas with the WBC, IBF and WBA titles on the line.

What has been said?
Spence said: “I’m going out to get his belts and then I’ll have three belts.
“Ugas is a tough fighter. You saw when he fought Shawn [Porter] he was waving for Shawn to come in and he was getting pumped up.
“So if I get the same Ugas that wants to trade and fight, it could be an early knockout.
“If you can outpoint me and beat me, I’m going to make it a dog fight and we’re going to go to war.
“I feel like he accomplished his American dream and isn’t as hungry as he was. We’ll see.”
