‘He Cannot Knock Me Out’: Manny Pacquiao And Yordenis Ugás Exchange Final Words At Final Press Conference
Freshened up with suits on and smiles on their faces, Manny Pacquiao and Yordenis Ugás spoke about their upcoming bout at their final press conference Wednesday.
Pacquiao assured fans that he didn’t have a difficult time adjusting to facing a new opponent while Ugás spoke bluntly and said Pacquiao won’t be knocking him out Saturday night.
“I am 100% certain he cannot knock me out,” Ugás said. “I’ve done all the work and all the preparation. Over the past six years, I’ve really been hitting my stride, and I don’t think Manny Pacquiao can knock me out.”
Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39 KOs) last won via TKO on July 15, 2018 against Lucas Martin Matthysse. The boxer has been knocked out only three times in his career.
Ugás (26-4) has 12 knockouts, but he himself has never been knocked out.
The Filipino reiterated Saturday might be the last fight of his career, but backtracked and told fans “you never know.”
“It’s not good for them [WBA] to strip my belt without fighting me, without challenging me. So let’s see if he will get the belt on Saturday,” said Pacquiao. “Both of us are a champion,” Pacquiao said when asked if he views Ugás as the WBA champion.
