The now-former WBA champion was not present at the press conference as he was hospitalized.

According to ESPN, Ugas, 35, was taken to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas.

And he is said to have his right eye checked after it swelled so badly that the fight was called off.

Spence, who was injured by Ugas in round six, inherited the WBA belt, which was on top of the WBC and IBF versions he carried into unification.

The only thing standing in the way of welterweight domination is Terence Crawford’s WBO title.

Spence, 32, said: “Everybody knows who I want next, I want Terence Crawford next.

“This is the fight I want, this is the fight everyone else wants and like I said, I’m going to get those straps.

“I’ll go over there and take his s*** too.

“Terence, I’ve come for the damn belt.”

In response, Crawford, 34, tweeted: “Congratulations great fight, now the real fight is on.

“No more talk, no more street side, let’s go!!!!

“Keep my belts warm, I’ll come for them later this year.”
