Yordenis Ugas Speaks Of ‘Difficult Months’ After Being Allowed to Resume Training

Things did not go well with former welterweight world champion Yordenis Ugas after clinching a big win against Manny Pacquiao last year.

He was confident to take down Errol Spence Jr. in the following fight, but he suffered a stoppage loss in his unification fight in April. Ugas also sustained a fractured orbital bone during the fight which has taken him months to recover.
Doctors have now allowed him to get back to his training schedule.

“Thank God the doctor allowed me to train with full contact,” the former champ told George Ebro.

“But we are not going to fight yet. Let’s keep training. They have been difficult months. I was seeing double, with a lot of discomforts. It has been a war, but it is one more that I’ve been able to fight. Thank God we’re moving on.”

Ugas revealed that he plans to stick to the welterweight class and work his way up to become a champion again.

“We have had great fights and we were already champion. Now we will try to get there again,” he said.

“The welterweight division is a historic weight class….. Sugar Ray Leonard, Floyd Mayweather, Oscar de la Hoya, Manny Pacquiao. This is the division I want to fight in.”
