WBC and IBF welterweight world champion Errol Spence Jr returns to the ring this weekend when he takes on WBA champion and Manny Pacquiao conqueror Yordenis Ugas in an intriguing unification contest in Texas.

Spence had been in line to face the Filipino fistic legend last summer but suffered a detached retina in training, paving the way for his weekend opponent to take his place instead. Should Spence emerge victorious in the Lone Star state, a blockbuster undisputed bout with WBO holder and fellow pound-for-pound contender Terence Crawford could come into fruition.
