SPENCE TKO'S UGAS IN 10, CLAIMS 3RD 147LBS BELT, WANTS CRAWFORD NEXT


PhilBoxing.com




Superbly skilled, focused and accurate, Errol Spence Jr (28-0, 22 KO’s) delivered one of the most riveting wins of his life by stopping Cuban titlist Yordenis Ugas, shutting his right eye in ten hot rounds of action to become a 3-belt WBC/WBA/IBF welterweight world champion Saturday night at the AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas.

The game Ugas (27-5, 12 KO’s) tried to control the action standing in front of Spence in an attempt to gain control with big counter shots. But "The Truth", who comes from an eye surgery himself, bested his foe, landing repeatedly on the Cuban former Olympian with damaging uppercuts, like the big one in the attached photo.

More pain Spence dished out, following up with left hooks and vicious straights, which after round seven began taking a heavy toll over the brave 35-year-old warrior born in beautiful Santiago de Cuba.

Some of those shots impacted Ugas’ right eye, fast getting an ugly inflammation on it, likely impairing his vision.

Then, destiny made itself known.

The inevitable ending unfolded as the ringside doctor advised the stoppage to Texas referee Laurence Cole to avoid further damage to Ugas's precious right eye, prompting the TKO in round ten.



Ugas did not like it.

But undoubtedly the stoppage was the best for him as he admitted during Showtime’s post-fight interview that he could not really see.

After his brilliant win, Spence, who was a 6-1 betting favorite, called out WBO ruler Terence "Bud" Crawford (38-0, 29 KO's) for a 4-belt Welterweight Unification Battle, hopefully later this year, to which Crawford quickly tweeted:

"Congratulations (Spence). Great fight. Now The real fight Happens. No More Talk. No more Side of the Street. Lets Go!!!"

Great! Spence vs Terrence in an undisputed war would certainly be a major blockbuster superfight, a gift to boxing fans, and a highlight for the 2022 boxing year.



If 40,000 Fans attended Spence's win tonight at the AT&T Stadium in Dallas, how many more would attend Spence vs Crawford? I would.

Fans are already excited about the prospects of their rumble.

Spence and Crawford - both 32-year-old warriors in their prime - can boast a with a combined record of 66-0.

Would their war really be next, as we all hope?

And the question to you is: Who would win the hot super fight?

And, would boxing legendary warrior king Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao consider about coming back to action to challenge the Spence vs Crawford big winner? Could something like that be possible?
