Eleven days away from the biggest fight of Errol Spence’s career disappointing news creeps in. Spence has to bow out of his fight against Manny Pacquiao due to an eye injury.
It was discovered that Spence has a torn retina during a pre-fight medical examination that was conducted by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Upon receiving the news Spence boarded a flight back to Texas where he is set to undergo surgery on Wednesday to correct the issue.
Yordenis Ugas was set to make his first title defense against Fabian Maidana on the undercard but that bout will no longer take place as Ugas will now defend his (Pacquiao’s since he never lost it) title in the main event against Pacquiao.
As for what will happen with Maidana it is not known at the moment this piece was written.
