Although Pacquiao was initially outlined to meet WBC-IBF champion Errol Spence Jr., a retinal injury in the American camp had urged Ugas to step up. The fight will happen at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, and will be available live on the FOX PPV. Matchmakers have set the price at $74.99, which is quite a hefty sum, assuring a big payday for both sides.

Meanwhile, the fight will be Manny Pacquiao’s return to the ropes after over two years. This can also be his last professional appearance, as the Filipino Senator can now run for the presidential election in his home country. Hence the WBA welterweight title fight will seemingly grab global attention.

Manny Pacquiao vs Yordenis Ugas: Money Show

According to the reports, Manny Pacquiao has a guaranteed purse of $5 million, which will subsequently see the PPV shares get added. So the Filipino legend can gain an amount close to $25 -$30 million. That’s quite a big payday, but the guaranteed pay is exactly half of what Pacquiao was guaranteed against Keith Thurman in 2019.

Nevertheless, it’s still a lucrative offer for Pacquiao, especially with a WBA world title up for grabs. Meanwhile, the exact numbers for Yordenis Ugas are not disclosed. ’54 Milagros’ Ugas came in as a replacement, which might berate his value.

But he will clearly bag the biggest payday of his fighting career so far. Hence, it’s safe to envision a multi-million payday for the Cuban pugilist. Relying on his record of 26-4, which is currently on a three-fight win streak, Ugas has his legitimate chances of landing an upset. That said, the collision reflects a 50-50 possibility of winning for both men.
