Drvn Announces Partnership with Yordenis Ugás

MIAMI (August 17th, 2021) - Global ground transportation logistics company and drvn announces their partnership with local legend, Yordenis Ugás. This sponsorship will have its debut on a blockbuster FOX Sports PBS Pay-Per-View showdown against former welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao on Saturday, August 21 from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. 

The 35-year-old Ugás (26-4, 12 KOs) has established himself as an elite welterweight since returning from a layoff in 2016 and was elevated to world champion in January by defeating Abel Ramos last September. Ugás, who is from Cuba and now lives in Miami, found immediate synergy with the founders of drvn - a global brand based in Miami. “drvn is a fantastic company with a lot of great people,” stated Ugás. “It’s very important to be associated with an elegant brand like drvn, who go all out on perfection and sophistication.”

This partnership is drvn’s first in boxing, but not their first foray in the sports world. They have worked closely with other professional sports teams, with Ugás as their first individual athlete collaborator in the sports world. “This is the beginning of an incredible partnership for us,” says Social Media Manager, Melissa Rey. “The team here at drvn and Ugás’s team together have come up with some great ideas and we see our partnership as being a symbol of the continued ascension of the Latin community. It’s a ‘one-for-all, and all-for-one’ mentality, and we feel honored to be providing our services to a Latin American Olympic icon and world champion like Ugás.”

Though his championship title is on the line, Ugas sees this as an opportunity to bring attention to the political unrest in his home country. “Everyone knows my story about how I came to America to follow my dreams of becoming a world champion, and now it’s time to stamp my legacy with a victory, as one of the best Cuban fighters to ever put on a pair of gloves. I love my country and I want to dedicate this fight to all the men and women who are fighting for freedom,” says Ugás. 

“It’s an honor to fight the great multiple-division world champion, Manny Pacquiao. I am more than ready to take on this challenge,’’ Ugás said. “I have a tremendous amount of respect for Pacquiao, but I am coming to win this fight. I’ve been in camp working hard with my coach Ismael Salas and I know together we will come up with a masterful game plan to combat anything Manny will bring to the ring. I wish Errol Spence Jr. a speedy recovery and I want to assure the fans that I will be at my best for this fight.” 
“I am a fighter not only inside the ring, but outside I also fight for the freedom of my people. That is the most important thing to me.”
