Manny Pacquiao will fight Yordenis Ugas after Errol Spence withdrawal due to eye injury

 Errol Spence Jr. was forced to withdraw from his August 21 fight with Filipino champ Manny Pacquiao due to a retinal tear in his left eye which the doctor suggest a surgery 'ASAP'.

On his social media post on Wednesday, Spence expressed his disappointment over the cancelled fight.

"The doctors found a small tear in my eye and said I need to get surgery ASAP. There is no way I can fight with my eye in that condition I would like to apologize to everyone and thank you all for the support," Spence wrote on Instagram.

Meanwhile, Pacquiao tweeted and asked his followers for Spence full and complete recovery. "Thank GOd his physical examination discovered his eye condition before he suffered any further damage."


However, WBA welterweight champion Yordenis Ugas step up to face Pacquiao instead. It is a ring comeback of Pacquiao since he beat Keith Thurman for the WBA welterweight title in July 2019.

The Cuban fighter who won a bronze medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics has agreed to replace Spence in the event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and defend his WBA welterweight title.
