MANNY Pacquiao returns to the ring on Saturday (Sunday Manila time) when he faces Yordenis Ugas at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Fighting for the first time in two years, the 42-year-old Pacquiao stakes his legacy and 62-7-2 win-loss-draw card against Ugas, a late replacement for Errol Spence in the main event of this Premier Boxing Champions card.
The 35-year-old Ugas, who holds a 26-4 record, will be looking to retain the World Boxing Association (WBA) super welterweight crown in what is easily the biggest fight of the career of the former Olympic gold medalist.
The card is scheduled to start at 9 a.m. on Sunday (Manila time).
The fight will be carried in the Philippines in different platforms - live on pay-per-view, streaming, and radio, and slightly delayed in other platforms like free television in three giant networks.
