Fight blog: Pacquiao floors Algieri six times in dominant win

November 21, 2014

 

Manny Pacquiao defended his WBO welterweight belt on Saturday night in Macau, China, flooring Chris Algieri six times en route to a unanimous victory.

Pacquiao (57-5-2, 38 KOs) didn't get his first knockout win five years, but he dominated in handing Algieri his first loss.

Algieri (20-1, 8 KOs) earned his spot in the spotlight with a stunning split-decision win over then-WBO light welterweight champion Ruslan Provodnikov on June 14 in Brooklyn, not far from the new champ's Long Island home.
