How to watch Pacquiao-Ugas fight in the Philippines

Manny Pacquiao will try to get back what once was his as he tangles with World Boxing Association (WBA) super welterweight champion Yordenis Ugas on Saturday, August 21 (Sunday, August 22, Manila time).

Pacquiao won the WBA title with a win over erstwhile unbeaten American Keith Thurman in July 2019 and held it for over a year.

However, the WBA stripped Pacquiao of the belt in January due to his inactivity and handed it to Cuban Ugas.

On Sunday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Pacquiao returns to the ring for the first time in more than two years with the mission of dispatching Ugas and reclaiming his throne.
