I am a warrior, the first Cuban fighting three belts in one night, Thank you to all the fans who asked for this fight, “he wrote on his social networks.
According to several boxing insiders, they pointed out that the president of the World Boxing Association, Gilberto mendoza, reported that the mandatory challenger, Eimantas Stanionis, He accepted a sum of money to step aside and not fight the Cuban in 2022.
Stanionis agreed to fight Radzhab Butaev, and they want this fight to go on the same card as Ugas vs Spence, said the promoter of Stanionis, Richard Schaefer, to ESPN.
Ugas comes from fighting in August against Manny pacquiao, which he defeated by unanimous decision. Meanwhile, Spence fought on December 5, 2020 against Danny Garcia, whom he defeated without problems, so he will complete more than a year without having stepped into the ring when he faces Ugas.
