Pacquiao vs. Ugas Odds: 58.62% of Bettors Backing Pacquiao against Ugas

In just a few days we’re going to see the return of Manny Pacquiao, one of the greatest boxers of the last 20 years. At first, we expected him to be an underdog against the No. 6 pound-for-pound fighter in the world, Erol Spence Jr. Instead, Yordenis Ugas is being called upon to fill in after an injury required Spence to withdraw.

Now, Pacquiao vs. Ugas odds are favoring the once longshot Pacquiao, but what can we expect from a 42-year old boxer?

The last time Pacquiao fought, he went out and delivered Keith Thurmond the first loss of his career. It was in 2019, but that is no small feat for a 40-year old, so it makes sense that Pacquiao vs. Ugas odds favor him.

Before that, Pacquiao defeated Adrien Broner, which meant a lot more maybe 8 years ago, but it’s still a solid win.

Meanwhile, Pacquiao vs. Ugas odds aren’t giving the challenger, Yordenis Ugas, much of a chance to take down Pacquiao, but who is the public backing? A large majority have seen the latest Pacquiao vs. Ugas odds and have decided to side with the favorite.
