R1- Spence is active with the jab during the first half, but Ugas starts to land his to the body. This area remains to be Ugas’ primary target in the round, as he lands several hooks there as well. The left hook shows to be a good counter punch for Ugas when he lands it, particularly when he slips a couple of shots then lands a clean left hook at the bell. Very much a swing round, but I felt Ugas did the better work in his half of the round.

R2- Both are targeting the body, but Spence is the more accurate puncher in this regard. The jab of Spence is also helping him balance things out and sneak in some lefts to the head. Spence lands a smooth combination to the body before getting out of Ugas’ range near the end of the round.

R3- Spence applies pressure and goes to work right away, cranking in several looping lefts and hitting Ugas with a straighter left hand when Ugas marches forward. Upon cutting the distance, Spence is able to get in body shots and uppercuts through Ugas’ guard with ease. Despite landing a few right hand counters towards the end of the round, this one 100% belonged to Spence. After the bell, we see that the right eye of Ugas is already starting to swell.

R4- Not only is the jab of Spence getting through, it is successfully setting up combinations to the head by ripping Ugas’ guard open or straight up distracting him. Even while being the aggressor, Spence displays some lateral movement at times, showing an overall good defense for Ugas’ offense when necessary. Like the last round, Ugas lands some counters late, but does not have a concerete answer for the pace and tenacity of Spence. My favorite moment from Spence in the round is when he lands a double left uppercut to the body just to bring that hand up and land a short overhand left right after.

R5- The body attack of Spence is relentless. Towards the middle of the round, Ugas seems to double over from the series of body blows he withstands, and Spence takes advantage by landing left uppercuts to his head. Ugas tries to smile off the pain at one point. Spence is applying near-constant pressure and keeping his head in Ugas’ chest, not giving him space to breathe, and digging to his body to stop his breathing altogether. We see Ugas fighting in spurts yet again, but Spence is blocking a majority of his shots.

R6- After taking some more combos to the body, Ugas manages to wobble Spence with a right hand over the top. Spence immediately asserts himself into the pocket right after, but Ugas manages to blast him with a right hookercut-type shot that sends his mouthpiece flying. One has to assume Spence is dazed due to turning away and peculiarly trying to recover his mouthpiece himself. Ugas takes advantage of this by jolting Spence with a 1-2 that staggers him into the ropes, with the ropes holding him up. This could have been ruled as a knockdown, but then again, the ref did call for a break. Ugas starts to stalk Spence on the ropes before referee Laurence Cole stops it at perhaps an insensitive time to let Spence get his mouthpiece put back in. Even after taking several combos to the body afterwards, Ugas definitely had the more memorable moments in the round and appeared able to keep up with Spence for the first time since the first round. Despite this strong round for Ugas, the fight would only get worse for him from here at a gradual rate.

R7- Spence is on top of Ugas right away, throwing punches in bunches. A left uppercut buckles Ugas, putting him on retreat. Spence is able to cut him off with ease, catching him with right hooks to the body and head and left uppercuts to his continuously closing-right eye. A right from Ugas snaps back the head of Spence late, but Spence returns the favor with another left uppercut. Great way for Spence to return the favor after the damage he took in the previous round.

R8- Ugas just cannot get away from the left uppercut of Spence. It’s awesome seeing Spence land the left uppercut then bring it around for a hook after, as he’s able to snap Ugas’ head in multiple directions throughout the round. In between, Spence is still assaulting his body. After seeing Ugas take a plethora of power shots to the head, the ref calls for the doctor to examine Ugas’ right eye, which is red and nearly shut. Despite this long break that Ugas gets, he is sent reeling forward from a combination to the body right after. I felt this was enough to score as a 10-8 round without a knockdown, as Ugas took an assault and hardly did anything in return.

R9- The hooks and uppercuts from Spence are landing at will, as he is landing about 4-6 for every single shot from Ugas. W right uppercut to the body seems to have some effect on Spence late, but not for long. Ugas scores with a couple of more of the same shot upon seeing its success, but this does not come close to overshadowing the copious amount of power shots to the body and head that he absorbed. A better round for Ugas than the last, but still an easy one to score for Spence.

R10- Spence continues to attack Ugas with combinations to the head and body. After primarily focusing on the body early on, Spence hurts Ugas with a left uppercut, then starts to follow Ugas around the ring, further battering him. Another left uppercut rocks Ugas, sending him backwards. After a brief follow up, Ugas gets examined again. The doctor rightfully stops the fight, which honestly would have been understandable if this occured before the last round. Spence proves doubters wrong after a layoff and injury with a strong, dominant performance a second time in a row. Ugas certainly had his moments, particularly in the sixth, but Spence thoroughly outclassed him and brutalized him more and more as the fight went on. This is arguably the most destructive version of Spence that we have seen and I honestly felt bad seeing Ugas become a sitting duck in the later rounds. Spence rightfully reveals that he’s targeting Terence Crawford in a very hype post fight speech. I do find it funny that many fans were mad that Spence fought Ugas instead of Crawford, as I was always more interested in their mega-clash taking place for all four belts, not just three of them. After years of drama and doubt, we finally have Spence and Crawford’s showdown on the way. I am sure that it will be an instantaneous fight for the ages and that Spence will look good early, but I wholeheartedly expect Crawford to stop him late.
