Ugas Vs. Dallas Jr. Live Results

On the eve of Super Bowl LIV, Yordenis Ugas is looking to make a statement as he takes on Mike Dallas Jr. Taking place inside the Beau Rivage Resort and Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi, the fight will take place on FS1.

For the 33-year-old Ugas (24-4), a win would bring him back into title contention. Following an eight-fight win streak, Yugas lost to Shawn Porter for the WBC Welterweight Title. He rebounded with a win over Omar Figueroa Jr. via unanimous decision back in July. His focus is to get to the top of the world.

“My lifelong dream ever since I first laced up a pair of gloves was to win a world title,” Ugas stated during his training camp. “I’ve come so close to accomplishing that dream, but for some reason I’ve come up short. I’m determined to be the best fighter I can be, and I know in my heart that I’m one of the best welterweights in the world. My goal is to become a world champion in 2020.”

Ugas faces off against a fighter who hasn’t fought professionally since 2016. Dallas Jr. (21-3-2), a former WBO Latino Light Welterweight Champion, hasn’t been seen since fighting Dusty Hernández-Harrison to a split decision draw. Prior to that, he was 2-1 in his last three, the one loss against Lucas Matthysse in 2013 for the interim WBC Light Welterweight Championship. Off the radar, Dallas Jr. has won two bouts since 2018; a TKO win against  Adan Gamboa and one against Moris Rodriguez via unanimous decision.

The co-main event features Michael Rivera and Fidel Maldonado Jr. fighting for the WBC Continental Americas Lightweight Championship. Rivera (17-0) is coming off of a September win against Jose Luis Gallegos via stoppage. Fidel (27-4)  has won three in a row, his last fight a TKO-win over Juan Santiago in August.
