Shawn Porter has withdrawn from his fight with Thomas Dulorme on the FOX undercard of Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor due to a death in the family. Resurgent Cuban Yordenis Ugas, no stranger to late-notice fights, has agreed to step in.

This is likely to be a much more competitive fight. Ugas (19-3, 9 KO), a former Olympic bronze medalist who looked like a bust after consecutive losses to Emmanuel Robles and Amir Imam, emerged after 27 months away to rattle off four straight, including wins over Jamal James, Bryant Perrella, and Levan Ghvamichava.

Dulorme (24-2, 16 KO) is 2-0 since his stoppage loss to Terence Crawford in 2015. He was almost certainly out of his depth against Porter, but figures to be a solid foe for Ugas.

The August 26th Prelims on FOX start at 7:00 PM ET and feature both Ugas-Dulorme and a fight between unbeaten Juan Heraldez (12-0, 8 KO) and Jose Miguel Borrego (13-0, 12 KO)
