Yordenis Ugas Thinks Fans Will Hate Him For Beating Manny Pacquiao

WBA welterweight champ Yordenis Ugas doesn’t know if the boxing community supports him after he beat Manny Pacquiao on August 21 via unanimous decision, pushing the Pacman into retirement.

Bidding adieu Pacquiao from the world of boxing, Ugas took to social media to ask the question.

Last week, Pacquiao called time on his 26-year-long boxing career to run for the president of the Philippines in early 2022. If he doesn’t get elected as the president, Pacquiao may don the gloves again next year.

In his last showdown against Ugas, Pacquiao admitted that Ugas was the better fighter between the two.

The Pacman conceded that the age got to as well since he doesn’t have the same agility and reflexes he had in his 20s.

Ugas stepped in for Errol Spence Jr., who suffered from an eye injury, on short notice. It wasn’t too long after his upset-win that boxing fans began recognizing him as the man who beat Pacquiao, instead of the man who replaced Spence.

While Pacquiao enjoys retirement and pursues a different career path, Ugas will look to make his second title defense against Eimantas Stanionis as part of the WBA order.
