Spence stated: “This goes to be an awesome combat. Ugas all the time involves compete.

“With all respect to Pacquiao, I’m a method completely different fighter than Pacquiao and at this level I’m a greater fighter.

“Ugas is an actual warrior, however I’m hungry too. I’m not letting this chance go by me.

“I’ve been feeling sturdy. My nutritionist that I added for this camp has been the lacking ingredient.

“I used to be struggling to make weight and I believe that’s the rationale that I haven’t gotten a stoppage in my previous few fights.

“This is the first camp in a while that I haven’t put the sauna suit on. It’s been a breath of fresh air. I’m really having fun in this training camp.”
