After his victory last month, here in Las Vegas, against Manny Pacquaio, WBA Welterweight World Champion Yordenis Ugás traveled to Miami to accept the Key to the City from Mayor Francis Suarez.
Speaking about receiving the honor in South Florida, he said this:
“I will always fight for freedom, not only for my countrymen in Cuba, but those being oppressed all over the world. I’m grateful to all my fans who have been with me from the beginning. Today was a great day from me and I will forever be thankful.”
Other past recipients of the Key to the City in Miami include Shakira, Jennifer Lopez and Will Smith.
