“I spent all morning in a hospital and I write these words with only one eye, the other is still closed.”

Reflecting on the fight, Ugas added: “The referee stopped the fight, but I wanted to keep going to the end. 

“I definitely had a chance to win the fight in the sixth round, but he recuperated well.”

The result means Ugas’ record now stands at 27-5, with 22 KOs.

But it’s Spence Jr (28-0, 22 KOs) who’s already on the hunt for his next fight, having added the WBA belt to his WBC and IBF straps.

And after the bell, the ace called out Terence Crawford, who holds the WBO title.

Spence Jr said: “Everybody knows who I want next, I want Terence Crawford next.

“That’s the fight that I want, that’s the fight everybody else wants. Terence, I’m coming for that motherf*****g belt.”
