Manny Pacquiao defeats Chris Algieri via unanimous decision; Scores 6 Knockdowns (VIDEO)
As predicted by many, Manny Pacquiao absolutely dominated Chris Algieri in the ring knocking down the American boxer several times en route to win by unanimous decision (119-103, 119-103, 120-102) on Sunday, November 23, at the Cotai Arena in Macau.
Algieri slipped to the corner in Round 2 but the referee called it a knockdown for Pacquiao.
Algieri came out more aggressive in Round 4 than in previous rounds but it's Pacquiao who still landed more punches.
Algieri went down in the 6th round after taking a series of lefts from Pacquiao. The American boxer went down again in Rounds 9 and 10 and appeared like he could not keep up with the eight-division world champion.
It was nevertheless a tremendous performance from the "Pacman," who showcased his remarkable speed, punching power, and ability to put together multi-punch combinations against the game but clearly outclassed Algieri.
The Filipino boxer won the fight 119-103, 119-103, and 120-102 to retain his belt.
It was Pacquiao's 58th win against five losses and two draws. Algieri, meanwhile, lost for the first time in his professional career.
