Spence is nicknamed “The Truth” and what’s true is that he is one of the best boxers on the planet. He has an undefeated 27-0 record with an astonishing 21 victories by knockout. In October 2019, Spence was in a terrible car accident putting into question whether he would ever return to the ring. He was able to return to boxing in December of 2020 when he took on Danny Garcia. Spence got the unanimous decision victory which was his third decision victory in a row. He had a bout scheduled with Manny Pacquiao for August of 2021, but it was canceled after Spence suffered a fractured orbital bone.
Ugás has a 27-4 record with 12 victories by knockout. His most recent loss came against Shawn Porter in March of 2019. Since then, Ugás has won four fights in a row. He is coming off a unanimous decision victory against Pacquiao in August of 2021. Ugás has had decision victories in three of his last four bouts. The outlier was his match in February of 2020 against Mike Dallas Jr. which ended when his opponent retired after the seventh round.
