Errol Spence Jr. tops a loaded undercard when the welterweight star bids to add the WBA welterweight title to his WBC and IBF versions.
Three sensational matchups have been added to the SHOWTIME PPV lineup as Spence battles Yordenis Ugas in a unification clash on Saturday, April 16.
The event comes live from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Premier Boxing Champions present it.
The pay-per-view telecast begins at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
It features exciting lightweight contender Isaac “Pitbull” Cruz taking on veteran former world champion Yuriorkis Gamboa in the 10-round co-main event.
“I can’t wait to be back in the ring and fight at AT&T Stadium,” said Cruz. “I love the fans in Texas. They always give me tremendous support.
“My promoter, Manny Pacquiao, had fought at AT&T Stadium before and won both times.
“I’m excited to follow in his footsteps against a very accomplished former champion in Gamboa.
“I’m coming to show the fans why I’m one of the best lightweights in the world and to drive Gamboa into retirement on April 16.”
“I always come to the ring to display my talents, and April 16 will be no different,” said Gamboa.
“It’s very motivating to be facing a young, strong opponent like Isaac Cruz. I’m going to test him and see if he can stand up to my power.
“I’m coming to win and make a big statement that I still have what it takes to become champion again.”

“Isaac Cruz showed against Gervonta Davis that he is a star in the making. He’ll be looking to display those talents once again against an accomplished opponent in Yuriorkis Gamboa.
