Last week, Yordenis Ugas (25-4) appeared on Premier Boxing Champions' Facebook page to interact with boxing fans on various subjects. PBC has held weekly chats on all of their social media platforms during this down time caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
One of those subjects was the chance of a potential rematch against former champion Shawn Porter. The two squared off in March, 2019 with Porter pulling out a split decision in a fight many observers felt Ugas did enough to win.
"That was a great fight of two of the best welterweights. A lot of people think I won that fight and I would love to make that fight happen again," Ugas said.
Other potential welterweight fights were mentioned by fans were with Mikey Garcia and Danny Garcia as potential opponents. While Ugas is interested in facing either fighter, he believes that a fight against Danny is much more possible at this point in time.
"Mikey is a great fight for me - I don't think I am in his plans but it is a good fight. I am looking to fight for titles and he has different plans right now so I don't know how possible that fight is," said Ugas.
"That would be a great fight against (Danny) Garcia. I have said before that I want that fight and that would be a great fight for everyone. He is one of the best welterweights and so am I."
As for Ugas' personal top 3 pound-for-pound list, he stated, "I have Canelo (Alvarez), Vasiliy Lomachenko, and I have (Errol) Spence for my top 3 pound-for-pound fighters."
