LAS VEGAS -- At a weigh in held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena for tomorrow’s huge fight at the T-Mobile Arena one can easily see what the Covid-19 pandemic has done.
For one, the usual huge crowd that gives the ambiance for this kind of events is not there. To maintain social distancing, the organizers elected to allow only accredited media folks and team members to be present in addition to the usual people that make events like the TV crew and alike.
WBA champion Yordenis Ugas (27-0-0, 21KO) hit the scales on the nose at 147 lbs. Not to be outdone, the fighting Senator from the Philippines, Manny Pacquiao (67-7-2, 39 KO) came in at 146 lbs.
As they say- “we have a fight!”
