Long-time trainer and partner Freddie Roach know that his man Manny Pacquiao is not
taking Yordenis Ugas lightly despite not being a well-known champion.
Ugas, a 35-year Cuban has been picked as a replacement for Errol Spence Jr. He
though is not new for last-minute call up as this will be his third fight as a replacement.
This time, however, is very much different than the first two as he about to face a living
legend in the sport of boxing.
While the anticipation went down after it was announced, Pacquiao remained in full
focus as he is not underestimating his opponent, just like all the opponents he had face
on his glorious boxing career.
“Manny is not treating this guy lightly,” Roach said on an interview with Fox Sports.
“Ugás has a lot to prove and has shown he is a quality fighter. Manny got himself into
great shape and he wants to show that to everyone watching.”
