Pacquiao (146 lbs), Ugas (147 lbs) make weight ahead of world title clash

Manny Pacquiao registered 146 pounds, and Yordenis Ugas of Cuba tipped the scales at 147 pounds during Friday’s (US time) weigh-in ahead of their clash for the World Boxing Association super welterweight title.

Pacquiao, known for his low-profile demeanor at pre-fight events, was his usual modest self when asked about his chances against Ugas.

“I’m never taking this fight lightly. Of course, I don’t want to be overconfident, but I want to make sure that tomorrow night we’ll (get) the victory. God willing, the fans will be happy,” said Pacquiao, who will challenge for Ugas’ WBA belt.

Ugas, who came in as a replacement opponent for injured Errol Spence Jr., said he is eager to take on a fighter of Pacquiao’s stature.

“I have a lot of respect for him so I’m very excited, but all respect is finished after we get on the ring (Saturday, US time),” Ugas said.
