  • Full credit to Spence for taking this fight after being off for so long. I think this is going to be a really tough fight for him and I wouldn’t be surprised if Ugas won it.

    • Shocked that Spence is a 4-1 favorite. I would think 2-1 is about right. Definitely value in Ugas.

    • Yes ! Speaking the truth. Funny that he’s coming off of a possible career ending injury and not having fought in a minute he takes on Ugas, whereas Thurman took on Barrios! Just saying

  • Fantastic match. The usually underdog Ugas could put in problems to Spence, although the cuban is not favourite. It will be very difficult that the cuban beat the american in USA.

    • “The usually underdog Ugas” (your words) beat Manny Pacquiao like a drum.

  • Personally think Ugas made his whole rep beating an ancient Paq his style makes some of his fights controversial but no way he wins a decision in Texas

  • the way it should be is;;;
    the winner fights Crawford.
    the loser fights Thurman. (but i doubt it)

  • The winner should fight Jaron Ennis, forget Crawford. Once Ennis takes over; Crawford, Thurman, Vergil Ortiz, Stanionis, Butaev and some others, be prepared to go through a grinder.

  • wow those tickets became available out of nowhere. just picked up a couple. great fight!

    • CB:
      – Please post comments/experiences on this card after the event.
      – Take care.

  • Not sure if Ugas will have enough sustained offense to withstand Spence Jr.’s pressure, jabs, body punching and sustained power for rounds 1-12.

    For now, I favor Spence, Jr. to wear down Ugas (late) for a competitive UD victory. However, I will keep my ears/eyes open regarding Spence Jr.’s training period.

  • If only Ugas has more power, struggles to crack and egg but is a good fighter. The winner of this will fight the winner of Khan vs Brook..haha

  • Ugas better plan on trying to win all 12 rounds clearly as he will not get the benefit of the doubt in any close round

  • The fight with Spence vs Crawford has lost its luster. I picked Bud to stop Spence before the car accident. Now if he beats him and stops him we will never know if it was the same Spence. Asterisk would go by that.

  • Good fight for both. Neither one is a solid favorite which should be competitive.

  • great match up now Crawford should fight Ennis or Ortiz and the winners fight for the undisputed crown

  • Lol in Texas! If any casuals think Spence is the next great thing wait until he fights Crawford or moves up in weight. Spence has not cleared out the 147 division. How can anyone call him p4p SMH

  • Spence will fight anyone and doesnt like to dilly dally around about it. Ugas looked twice PacMan’s size when he beat the aged fighter so Im definitely going with Spence.

  • Another bullshit PPV fight from PBC. How do they manipulate the number to make it seem that they are making money with this events ? Crazy.

  • I’m disappointed to see another one of Spence’s big fights held in Texas. Spence needs to man up and relinquish his home town advantage. If he ever decides to fight Crawford, he’ll probably demand that the fight be held in his own backyard.
