Manny Pacquiao and Chris Algieri will square off on Saturday, November 22 in Macau. They will be battling for Pacquiao’s WBO welterweight title. We will be live blogging all the action for you.
Pacquiao (56-5-2, 38 KOs) will be looking to show he’s still got knockout power against an underrated fighter in Algieri (20-0, 8 KOs). The Pac-Man is coming off consecutive lopsided decision wins over Brandon Rios and Timothy Bradley and wants to show he still has the ability to earn stoppages despite being 35 and five years removed from his last knockout.
The fight will take place at a catch weight of 144 pounds, Algieri owns the WBO junior welterweight title so he’ll be moving up for this fight. Meanwhile, Pacquiao will be coming down from 147, but he walks around at 140 and believes that might be his best in-ring weight. We will see if putting on less weight and fighting at a lower class helps or hurts him.
