Boxer wants death penalty for thieves who robbed him in Las Vegas home
Cuban former world title challenger Yordenis Ugas has revealed he was robbed by thieves at his Las Vegas home this week.
The welterweight star, who lost to Shawn Porter in a WBC welterweight shot earlier this year, was cleaned out of his prized possessions.
Ugas took to social media to call for those responsible to be punished to the maximum for their actions.
“I was robbed at my house in Las Vegas. They took everything I had,” Ugas revealed. “The sacrifice of many years of work.
“I hate thieves. They should pay with their lives, the pain and frustration they cause,” he added calling for the death penalty.

“You can not trust anyone. Life is very cruel and people have no loyalty. Everyone is bad until I show you otherwise.”
