Against The Ropes: Pacquiao Retains

Manny Pacquiao dominated Chris Algieri Sunday night in what Good Ol’ JR would describe as a “one legged man in an ass kicking contest.” The victory was in front of 13,201 strong at the Venetian Macao’s Cotai Arena in Macau. Throughout the entirety of the fight Pacquiao scored six knockdowns and retained his prestigious Welterweight World Title. With that win Pacquiao is now 57-5-2 with 38 KOs. The judge’s scores down the line were 120-102, 119-103 and 119-103. ESPN.com scored the fight as 120-102.

The fight started out rough for Algieri but things continued to worsen when in the second round as Pacquiao connected with a right hook which swelled his eye. Things went from bad to worse when Algieri slipped on a wet spot and referee Geno Rodriguez ruled that as a knockdown. In the fourth round Pacquiao went on the offensive even harder with uppercuts and lefts to the body and head. “I knew he would come on strong,” Algieri said after the fight. “I had a feeling he would try to blast me out of there just because I’m not used to the big stage. Manny is the best in the world at fighting like Manny Pacquiao. That’s really what it is. His style, he has so much experience. He’s perfected fighting like Manny Pacquiao. The plan was to get to the later rounds without taking too much damage, step up the pace and land shots that would hurt him. If the knockout came, it came. We weren’t specifically looking for the knockout, but we were looking to put some damage on the guy.”

After the fight Pacquiao had this to say on the subject of Floyd Mayweather: “The people deserve that fight. The fans deserve that fight,” Pacquiao said at the post-fight news conference. “It’s time to make that fight happen. It’s been a long time. I want that fight. They’re always denying the fight. I think the fight has to happen.”
