LAS VEGAS - Manny Pacquiao and Yordenis Ugas lock horns on Saturday at T-Mobile Arena for the latter's WBA (super) welterweight title. 

Before the bell sounds, Pacquiao and Ugas went face-to-face one last time at Friday's weigh-ins to make the fight official. 

Ugas tipped the scales first, weighing in at the welterweight limit of 147 pounds. 

Then Pacquiao came onto the scale and came in one pound below Ugas at 146. However, unlike Wednesday when Pacquiao and Ugas had a tense face-to-face staredown, this time around, both participants were cordial and went without incident. 

Initially, Pacquiao was set to face unified champion Errol Spence Jr. Spence was forced to pull out due to a retinal tear. Ugas was set to be in the co-main event against Fabian Maidana. But Maidana also suffered an eye injury, so Ugas got bumped up to the headlining position against boxing's only eight-division world champion.

Even though Ugas isn't Spence, that doesn't mean the 42-year-old is overlooking the 2008 Olympic bronze medalist out of Cuba.

"I’m not taking this fight lightly," Pacquiao said immediately after the weigh-in. "Of course, I don’t want to be overconfident in this fight. But I want to make sure that tomorrow night I bring home the victory. God willing, the fans will be happy."

The central theme heading into the fight is the possibility of this being the final time Pacquiao competes. While he didn't divulge if that's the case, Pacquiao vowed to give it his all once he steps through the ropes. 

"Tomorrow night, I will do my best," Pacquiao said. "I’ll give my best to the fans and, of course, for my country. This fight will be dedicated to the Phillippine people."
