Barrios Out, Ugas In For Toe To Toe Tuesdays – Super lightweight prospect Mario Barrios (18-0) will not be fighting his scheduled ten round bout tonight in Mississippi on the “Toe To Toe Tuesdays” card.
Barrios was originlly scheduled to face veteran Nelson Lara in a welterweight bout, but Lara was overweight and Barrios elected to not take the fight. Stepping in on short notice for what will be a super welterweight bout is veteran Cuban slugger Yordenis Ugas. 2016 saw Ugas win TBC’s “Comeback Fighter of the Year” and his stepping in on short notice here shows that the 30-year-old Ugas is ready to take risks to advance his career and keep banking paydays.
The 21-year-old Barrios will sit and wait for another opportunity and that should come in the very near future as it is not his fault Lara was over on the weight by a large amount.
