Last night, another promising welterweight emerged as Yordenis Ugas scored the best victory of his professional boxing career when he stopped Ray Robinson in the 7th round. Ugas put the boxing world on notice with his patient boxing style and good combination punching. Ugas started off the night by knocking down Robinson in the 1st round with a crisp counter right-hand shot. Robinson got off the canvas but just could not figure out the crafty Ugas. Ugas dazzled Robinson with change-up combinations to the head and body throughout the night.
In the 4th round, the action was so good that the 2 fighters would slug after the bell. Ugas clipped Robinson with a shot and Robinson came back with a vicious right-uppercut after the bell that sent Ugas to the canvas. The right-uppercut by Robinson caused Referee Robert Byrd to take a point away from Robinson. Now Robinson had a point when he said that the point deduction from Referee Robert Byrd was BS because Ugas indeed hit Robinson first after the bell.
Heading into round 5, Robinson was under the eight ball as he needed to rally from a 1st round knockdown and a 4th round point deduction. Not to mention that he was getting outclassed by Ugas’ patient counter-attack. As the fight moved on, Robinson continued to get patiently outworked by Ugas. In the 7th round, Ugas caught Robinson with a devastating counter right hook that sent Robinson clear across the ring. Robinson got up from the devastating shot but was clearly on shaky legs.
Ugas closed the show in the 7th by backing Robinson against the ropes and landing a barrage of punches on him. Robinson did not respond in time and Referee Robert Byrd stopped the fight. Yordenis Ugas was awarded the 7th round TKO victory.
How about Yordenis Ugas Boxing World? He showed the world that he is ready for the upper echelon of opponents in the best division in boxing. Ugas has created a huge opportunity for himself because the welterweight division is so stacked and so competitive that he will not have any problems finding an opponent to make an intriguing fight.
Ugas is easy to like because of his patient boxing style. It’s a passive-aggressive attack that the boxing world can appreciate. With the win last night, Ugas is a perfect 6 and 0 since moving to the welterweight division. I think the kid is ready to make his mark in the welterweight division. What do you think Boxing World?
