The Cuban super welterweight champion of the AMB, Yordenis ugas, exploded against the body, as he claims that he was ordered to participate in a four-fighter tournament to consolidate his titles at 147 pounds. This, after Ugas defended the scepter by defeating Manny Pacquiao.
“It is disrespectful that the AMB have a tournament to define your champion, when I am the super champion, I just beat a legend (Pacquiao) and I have a win over the regular champion Jamal james“, He claimed Yordenis Ugás from their social networks. “The obligatory fights of the AMB they are always to fight for the regular title. I fought against Abel and i was promoted when Pacquiao I was out of sport ”.
In your message, Ugas threw three questions to the AMB, as a claim.
“Which super champion in history has had a mandatory fight for the title of super champion of the AMB? ”He asked. “With everything and the reduction of titles that the AMBWhat super champion has a mandatory fight imposed? ”.
Yordenis He enlisted all the super champions that the AMB, and pointed out that none of them have been imposed a mandatory fight. Report different treatment.
“Anthony Joshua, Arsen goulamirian, Dmitry Bivol, Saul Alvarez, Jermell charlo, Josh taylor, Teofimo Lopez, Gervonta davis, Leo Santa Cruz, Murodjon Akhmadaliev, Naoya inoue and Artem Dalakian. None of these 14 champions have mandatory fights imposed and their next fight will not unify the championship. Why this different treatment with me? ”, He warned.
Yordenis Ugás asks for respect from the WBA
It is worth mentioning that the AMB he’s in the process of reducing the high number of champions he had. The body had a super champion, a regular champion, and in many cases, an interim champion as well. Now the AMB He has ordered fights to reduce that number of belts and have a single monarch per category.
The AMB ordered that Yordenis face undefeated contender number one, Eimantas Stanionis within four months. The other fight of the tournament would be in charge of the regular welterweight champion of the AMB, Jamal james against Radzhab Butaev.
The winners of both fights will meet in March 2022, and the winner of that contest will be named the lone champion of the AMB at 147 lbs.
“I respect all the fighters. But what has he done Stanionis in 13 fights, of which 4 have been with fighters with more defeats than won and he has only had a 4-year career, “he denounced Ugas. “His biggest victory was two months ago against Dulorme, which I beat 5 years ago to have a chance for the title of super champion of the AMB and ruin a unification fight?
Ugás will wait for the last decision of the organism
The Cuban recalled that the president of the organization had promised him that if he fought against a great one, he would no longer have to carry out mandatory battles.
“Tomorrow is the decision of the AMB about my case of super champion of the organism. When I spoke to your president on the phone Gilberto Mendoza Jr. A few weeks ago, he told me that he wanted the best fights for me, and assured me that if I fought against Pacquiao or Spence I would not have mandatory fights, “he said.
“I came to Colombia to sit face to face and my message was never answered. I just paid tens of thousands of dollars in penalty for my fight that charges the AMB. It is amazing that the AMB treat a champion like that. We will await the decision tomorrow and be ready for the next steps. I was definitely born to fight. Thanks. Thank God ”, he sentenced.
