Prediction,

I think Ugas will be the favourite, he lost to Porter, but it was very close, fairly controversial, and Ugas did a lot better than most people expected.

Ugas was a great amateur, beat Crawford, Pedraza, won the Olympic bronze in 2008, gold in the 2005 world amateur championships. Figueroa's amateur career was nothing like Ugas's, no record of any amateur highlights on BoxRec. In terms of amateur pedigree, there is absolutely no comparison.

All in all, Ugas hasn't adapted to the pro game that well, he is a great amateur who didn't transition into a great professional, he lost 3 fights earlier in his career, 2 of them, against opponents who are not world level, he never won a title, but he seemed to improve, beat Jamal James, Ugas was in a close, controversial fight against Thomas Dulorme, I thought he was very lucky to win that one, he would have lost had the referee not docked 2 points from Dulorme (unjustly in my opinion). Ugas has been phenomenal since the Dulorme win, he dominated and stopped Ray Robinson easy, in what was supposed to be a tough fight for him, and he won the eliminator with ease, got a shutout, and against Porter, he fought the fight of his life, did very well, didn't quite get the win, but he came close.

Figueroa is unbeaten, he has seemed like a very good fighter at times, made a big statement when he stopped Abner Cotto in 1 round, in 2013, he just edged out Belmontes in 2014, struggled against Burns in 2015, won, but struggled, failed to impress, and he also had a tough fight against DeMarco, won, but faded in the late rounds, he came back 18 months later, made a big statement, destroyed Robert Guerrero (who had never been stopped) in 3 rounds, put himself back on the map, but then was out for another 18 months, fought John Molina Jr in February, won, but it was a tough, competitive fight.

It is good for Figueroa that he is not having another inactive spell, is coming back after 5 months, quick, will get 2 fights in one year for the first time since 2015. It is now or never for Figueroa, he is a talented fighter, has power, durability, can fight, has some skill, and at 29, he is in his prime, he is as good as he will ever be, he can't waste any more time. It is definitely fair to question Figueroa as a professional, he has been inactive, been arrested, was 11lbs over the limit against DeMarco.

I don't think Ugas can repeat his performance from the Porter fight, if he can, I think he beats Figueroa one sided, but I don't think he can, I think 4 months, after a fight like that, is not long enough, and at 32, he is declining, he seems to have come of age, been at his best at 30-32, but he will probably be starting to decline now, and I think what he did in the Porter fight was the best we'll see from Ugas.

Whether Ugas can match what he did in the Porter fight or not, this seems like a big ask for Figueroa, Ugas just gave Porter all he could handle, I don't think Figueroa is on Porter's level.

Judges are a very real concern for Ugas in my opinion, I don't know why the judges had Figueroa beating Molina one sided, when almost everyone else had it close, it was a good scrap, high tempo a lot of punches landed, Figueroa never looked like he was on a different level to Molina. Figueroa got a landslide scorecard in his favour when he beat Belmontes, and against Burns, it seemed like a very close fight, Burns lost 2 points, quite controversially, and it seemed like a close fight outside of the point deductions, but Figueroa got a landslide win. The Burns fight was in Texas, which explains a lot, but the Molina and Belmontes fights were both in California, this is in Nevada, but I think the judges are a concern for Ugas.

I think this will be an interesting fight, Ugas, with his amateur pedigree, great skills, can out box Figueroa, Figueroa is not hard to hit, he isn't a terrible defensive fighter, but he is not good either, Ugas can time and counter him coming forward, if he works the body early, Ugas, he could take a toll on Figueroa, I think that is the best shot you have of hurting a fighter like Figueroa, who has a granite chin, is a warrior, but not the most diciplined athlete.

I think Ugas will struggle with the pressure from Figueroa in rounds 7-10, I think when Figueroa closes that gap, Ugas will have to work extremely hard to keep doing the better work, he won't be able to match Figueroa for output.

I think Figueroa will slow down in the last couple of rounds, he hasn't been there in 3-4 years, he didn't finish strong against DeMarco, and Ugas has been 12 rounds in his last two fights, I thought Ugas would tire against Porter like he did against Dulorme, but he finished strong in that fight, Ugas.

I think this will be a draw, I can see more logical reasons to pick Ugas to win, but I think a draw, 116-112 Ugas, 115-113 Figueroa, and 114-114.

Fight still going....but this is soulcrushing. Ugas is beating Figueroa and badly. Figueroa is one of those inside fighters with lots of hearts who keeps going even if he is getting destroyed.
Props to ugas, who went into fighting Figueroa's fight, and still dominated him since the first ring. Figueroa as a fun one-dimensional style, but if he is unable to adjust, he is done.

Phenomenal performance from Ugas, but a terrible performance from Figueroa. Figueroa got beaten up, his corner might have been wise to pull him out, because his tank was empty, he couldn't let his hands go, Ugas was the stronger, fresher in the late rounds, was still doing more damage, Figueroa had no success whatsoever, but I can see why he didn't stop the fight, the pace did slow down in the late rounds, and Ugas wasn't beating Figueroa up as bad.

Figueroa was not prepared for a fight of this magnitude, he didn't have it in the tank in the late rounds to go for the KO, and the body shots from Ugas were very effective. A fighter like Figueroa will struggle when their opponent can out hustle them, Ugas beat him at his own fight.

What a performance from Ugas!
