Manny Pacquaio warns Yordenis Ugas: I will knock you out and take my belt

Manny Pacquiao has warned Yordenis Ugas that he wants to deliver a ruthless knockout as he believes the Cuban ‘took my belt’ ahead of Saturday’s world title fight.

The Filipino star returns to challenge Ugas for the WBA ‘super’ welterweight belt in Las Vegas, Saturday night.

Pacquiao had claimed the same WBA title with a points win over Keith Thurman in 2019, but the governing body stripped him of the belt due to inactivity and elevated Ugas to ‘super’ champion.

“I didn’t like that someone took my belt without challenging me in the ring,” said Pacquiao at the final press conference.

“Both of us are champions, but we’ll see who has the belt after Saturday.”

At the age of 42, Pacquiao has revealed that his preparations have been more intense than for his last fight, and plans to inflict an explosive defeat on Ugas.
