In mere days, the Manny Pacquiao vs Yordenis Ugas bout has received widespread reactions from boxing fans.

However, Manny Pacquiao will remain on the opposite side which will benefit FOX to pull off a successful PPV, despite the WBC-IBF champion’s absence. After Errol Spence Jr suffered a retinal injury and walked away, several fans thought the PPV prices would decrease. But the current scenario doesn’t reflect the same as FOX hasn’t decreased the PPV price, which was initially set at $74.99.

Nevertheless, many fans may not mind paying the amount.
