On this date 🗓️September 16th, 1981 – Forty years ago to the day…a super-fight was fought, and its action established itself as one of the greatest Welterweight Championship bouts in boxing history, as well as one of its greatest events. Both at the top of their game, brimmed with expectation, and both in their prime, Gold-Medalist, and Ring-Magazine/WBA Welterweight Champion of the World 👑🥇🇺🇸Sugar Ray Leonard (30-1-0, 21KO👊) and dangerous unbeaten WBC Champion 👑🇺🇸Thomas “Hitman” Hearns (32-0-0, 30KO👊) met for their pivotal unification bout for Undisputed World Champion, in a bout that was pivotal for their legacy.

Yordenis Ugas, Who Took the Fight on Short Notice, Shakes Up the Boxing World by Defeating Legend Manny Pacquiao, To Stake his WBA Welterweight Standing Claim

The crowd at the 🏟️T-Mobile Arena was electric, as a large contingent of Filipino fans were in the crowd, and a group of proud Cubans cheering heavily for their man. In a sense, this is a “deja vu” type of a situation for 🔱🇵🇭Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao (62-8-2, 39KO👊), who made his worldly introduction against Lehlo Ledwaba by taking the fight on 2-weeks notice, and showing out. A similar situation just unfolded, but the difference was…..that the fighter taking the bout on short notice was the reigning WBA Welterweight world titlist in Cuba’s 🥉🇨🇺Yordenis Ugas (27-4-0, 12KO👊), and he has showed the world what he is capable of doing at high levels when given the opportunity.

The old adage goes…appreciate the greats while they are still around…and one of the greatest of them all will return to the ring after a 2 year hiatus, for another chance for major glory at age 42. Boxings only 8-division titlist, only 5-division Lineal World Champion & 13-time world titlist 🔱🇵🇭Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39KO👊) was originally slated for a blockbuster challenge in going up against a generational great in WBC/IBF Welterweight Titlist 🇺🇸Errol Spence Jr. for his titles, but apparently 11 days prior to the fight, a retinal injury was discovered, and Spence had to go under the 🔪knife to take care of his injury, thus him pulling out of the fight – and for that, we wish Errol Spence well on his recovery timetable.

Disappointing News On a Major Fight, But a Very Credible Back-Up Opponent Put In Place To Keep the Show Going For August 21st 📰🚫

Today, we have learned that a physical exam revealed a detached left-retina injury for WBC/IBF Welterweight Titlist 🇺🇸Errol Spence Jr. (27-0-0, 21KO👊), thus his involvement in his tangle-up with 🇵🇭Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao (62-7-2, 39KO👊) being shelved to the side on Errol’s accord, which means that arguably the biggest fight in boxing already inked for 2021, will fall to the wayside.
