However, the Cuban pugilist has all the accolades that turn him into an elite boxer. Besides, he is already a multi-millionaire, which cites him to have ensured a lucrative bank account balance and he may no longer need to fight for money. That said, the upcoming title defense against Manny Pacquiao will add another hefty amount to his net worth, raking it up to his highest yet.

How rich is the Cuban boxer Yordenis Ugas?

Two-time Olympian Yordenis Ugas has been a professional boxer for over a decade. He had already made a name for himself, before entering the pro circuit, and a successful debut evoked excited reactions from the fans. So, Ugas could always find himself in profitable positions.

According to multiple reports, Ugas currently has a net worth of $15 million. Most of it has come from his boxing career. In an active career of 30 fights, Ugas bagged an enormous amount by facing Shawn Porter in 2019. He couldn’t win the bout but earned a healthy financial metric before going on a four-fight win streak.

Interestingly, Ugas has his own YouTube channel, which he hardly promotes. The channel has several videos of his fights but has only 17 subscribers. Ugas also has 98.3 k followers on social media, which is very little, compared to his contemporaries. So, online sponsorships don’t appear to be his thing.

Already an Olympic medalist and a boxing world champion, the 35-year-old can still see a few years on the professional landscape. Hence, he can rightly continue to making money via boxing. The upcoming headliner on August 21 against Pacquiao can resurrect him as a top-tier opponent.
