    Also true in reverse. Pac had a full camp but didn't have a full camp preparing for Ugás.

    Also true in reverse. Pac's camp was interrupted by his original opponent pulling out, so he had to stop training, then re-adjust his training camp at the last minute for Ugás.

    Okay, yeah, high stakes, hard sparring, I got ya - but if there was that much hard sparring going on in camp, don't you think it might take an especially hard toll on the 42 year old? You don't know what kind of micro-injuries Pac is harboring. FFS, this is a guy that fought Mayweather injured and refused to disclose that publicly until afterward. He isn't going to utter a peep even if he does happen to be in rougher shape than Ugás with the bicep tear.

    A) he is healthy enough and the bicep tear minimal enough that he is medically cleared to fight.
    B) as we've gone over ad nauseum, this isn't on a week's notice. At least not in any imbalanced way that disadvantages him, because his opponent also had only a week to prep specifically for him.
    C) ...omens? :lol: Thought you were going to stay rooted in reality.

    Also true in reverse. Pac is facing that exact situation as well.

    I think you're overstating how much of a fight camp is dedicated to specific opponent prep (usually that just boils down to choice of sparring partners for stylistic looks). Prepping for the nuances of your opponent and mimicking their style is only a small part of the point of sparring, and sparring is but one small element of a full training camp. Most of a camp is getting yourself fight-fit, making weight, and going through all the same drills and repetitions you do in every camp, to build that aerobic and anaerobic capacity, get the rust off your fast- and slow-twitch fibes, and refresh that muscle-memory of fluid movement, punches, and defense. Most of a training camp is universal and transferrable from one opponent to another. There is some importance to knowing who you're fighting and training accordingly, yes, but at the championship level, a world titlist and product of the Cuban amateur system like Ugás is somebody for whom a week ought to be plenty to be able to make those sort of adjustments to game plan.

    He had an episode of alopecia. Having no eyebrows makes you look very strange. That's all.

    Luis Ortiz, Guillermo Rigondeaux, Yordanis Despaigne, Eliecer Castillo, Sullivan Barrera, Odlanier Solis, Richar Abril...

    Something in the water down there, a majority of Afro-Cuban boxers on average look a good several years to a decade or two beyond their real age. Kind of like Nigerians. Old news. :nusenuse:

    Living in a harsh, communist environment probably does that to you.

    Well I don't think Pac was doing much sparring. Pac doesn't need as much sparring at this stage in his career as the younger fighters do. Also I don't think you can under estimate how all the rest and time off has made it easier for Pac to come back refreshed and avoid injury. Younger fighters who fight more regularly than Pac has have had more opportunities to get injured over that time.

    Pac is more experienced whereas a younger fighter does not know the limits of his body, which can easily cause a younger fighter to push himself harder in the gym or in sparring and get accidently injured while preparing for a fight. Older more experienced fighters like Pac generally know how to avoid injuries in camp. It's interesting you bring up the Mayweather Pacquiao fight and the shoulder injury, because that's very similar to what Ugas appears to be going through here. A fighter pretending he's not injured to get the biggest payday of his career even though we can see he's hiding an injury. This is never good, it always leads to a disappointing fight.

    I actually looked it up, they did briefly have a Commie party for about half a decade, but it was banned 55 years ago.

    Old joke about communism, my bad translation:

    After dissolution of USSR russians sold glass coffin with Lenin to americans. Americans placed him on top of empire state building. Some day Lenin wakes up, looks at all those beautiful skyscrapers and expensive cars and says:

    "Thats how I imagined communism!"

    Gotta love how PEDquiao stays in shape all these years

    Really is the Lance Armstrong of boxing

    I'm surprised he hasn't burned a hole through a cup during testing
