Yordenis Ugás beats Manny Pacquiao by unanimous decision.

Cuba's Yordenis Ugas sent Manny Pacquiao spinning to a dramatic upset defeat on Saturday (21), outclassing the Filipino boxing icon with a composed unanimous points victory at the T-Mobile Arena. 

In his first fight after a two-year absence from the ring, Pacquiao was made to look every bit of his 42 years as the younger Ugas dominated with a stinging jab and cleaner punching to retain his WBA welterweight belt. 

Ugas, 35, had only been drafted in to face Pacquiao earlier this month after the eight-division world champion's original opponent Errol Spence Jr. suffered an eye injury in training.

But the defending champion seized his opportunity brilliantly to win on all three cards, with one judge scoring it 115-113 and two others 116-112.

Pacquiao is the only man in boxing history to hold world titles in eight different divisions and is one of the greatest boxers of all time.
