No KO for Pacquiao

By Robbie Pangilinan

- It was a unanimous decision in favor of the Pambansang Kamao Manny Pacquiao in the WBO Welterweight title fight against Chris Algieri at the Cotai Arena inside the Venetian Resort in Macao, China on Sunday.

Even as Algieri was knocked down six times, the eight division world champion failed to knock him out, as expected by Pacman coach Freddie Roach who predicted a first round stoppage victory.

Pacquiao’s last KO victory was in November 2009 against Miguel Angel Cotto.


He is still the Champ

– Impressive win, eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao showed the world what he is made of. His victory over undefeated Chris Algieri in their welterweight bout today at the Cotai Arena, Macau, Pacman remains the People’s Champ and the Pambansang Kamao.

Manny Pacquiao is a solid boxer who is truly the best in the world. There is no doubt that he is the pound-for-pound champion. Congratulations!
-   Sen. Aquilino Martin “Koko” dela Llana Pimentel III

Pacquiao wins! This is a great victory for him and the country. Once again, he has proven to the world that the Filipinos are brave fighters.

KO remains elusive for Pacquiao


As expected, Manny Pacquiao walked past unbeaten WBO light welterweight champion Chris Algieri, but failed to score the knockout demanded by his fans since November 2009, winning by a lopsided decision after 12 rounds to keep his WBO welterweight crown at the Cotai Arena inside the Venetian Resort in Macao, China on Sunday.
Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 KOs) scored a tension-filled unanimous decision over Algieri (20-0, 8 KOs), who was downed six times and became the seventh man to finish the distance with Pacquiao since March 13, 2010 when Pacquiao beat Joshua Clottey by 12-round unanimous decision in Arlington, Texas.
Pacquiao, 35, stalked Algieri, 30, the whole fight, as Algieri used his footwork to backpedal and box from outside.


BRIEF PRE-FIGHT ANALYSIS: What to expect when Pacquiao and Algieri throw punches

By Alex P. Vidal, Sportsmanila.Net
Pacquiao is left-handed. He throws a jab with his right and makes a follow up straight with his left.

Algieri is orthodox or right-handed. He throws a jab with a left and makes a follow up straight with his right.

Pacquiao will attack and tries to get nearer Algieri most of the time so he can connect with solid combinations.

Algieri will try to stop Pacquiao in his tracks by using his reach advantage and sprays Pacquiao with a two-punch (jab-straight) combination.


Manny: still the People’s Champ

By Robbie Pangilinan
MACAU via PCSO - As the upcoming WBO Welterweight title fight on November 22 at the Cotai Arena in the Venetian in Macau, China draws near, Filipino boxing fans are again rooting for the Pambansang Kamao, Manny Pacquiao.

Pacquiao (56-5-2) is fresh from back-to-back wins against Timothy Bradley and Brandon Rios, while Chris Algieri (20-0) won all 20 of his professional fights, with his most recent and biggest victory against Ruslan Provodnikov.

The Vice President himself, Jejomar Binay, predicts that Manny will win over Algieri, saying, “Hindi natin alam kung anong round basta importante mananalo siya, dahil siya ay maka-Diyos at makabayan,” he said.
