Ugás was U17(cadets) world champ in 2003 but lost at the junior championships 2004 to Amir Khan. On other occasions he lost twice to countryman Luis Franco at featherweight, he finished third aththe nationals 2004 at featherweight.

In 2005 he moved up to lightweight where he was more successful, winning the Cuban Championships 2005 to 2008 and turning into a star.He won a tournament called PanAm Championships (not the PanAm Games) in 2005, however in other tournaments he lost twice to Kazach southpaw Serik Sapiyev.

At the Senior World Championships 2005 he suffered two heavy knockdowns by Canadian southpaw Ibrahim Kamal in his third fight but managed to win.Manilatimes writes:"But for two fleeting moments Thursday, unheralded Canadian lightweight Ibrahim Kamal showed the world that the Cubans, arguably the number-one force in amateur boxing, may have jaws of glass after all.The University of Toronto student knocked down Yordanis Ugas in the first and second rounds with two sledgehammer lefts to the side of the chin.But then the Canadian southpaw hurt one knee as he and Ugas wrestled each other to the floor on the third round, leaving him effectively fighting on one leg." Later Ugás beat Russian Khabib Allakhverdiyev and in the final he outfought Romal Amanov from Azerbaidjan. Cubanet.org writes "Yordenis Ugas, a sharp, technically accomplished fighter but with a suspect jaw, won the lightweight gold for Cuba after an explosive toe-to-toe clash with Romal Amanov of Azerbaijan." It describes him "a tall, bony lightweight with a deceptively languid fighting style"

In 2006 he won the Central American Championships.

He was part of the Cuban team that won the 2006 Boxing World Cup. [http://rusboxing.ru/news.php?readmore=223]
