Manny Pacquiao scores unanimous decision over Chris Algieri

MACAU, China -- Long Island's Chris Algieri talks about his loss to Manny Pacquiao in which he was knocked down six times on Sunday afternoon, Nov. 23, 2014 here at the Venetian Macao. (Newsday/Mark La Monica, Jeffrey Basinger)

IF HE WINS MACAU – Chris Algieri did what he went halfway across the world to do: turn the entire boxing world upside down by beating Manny Pacquiao and taking his WBO welterweight championship belt. Algieri, from Greenlawn, ACTION OF THE FIGHT HERE to win by TYPE OF WIN HERE on Sunday afternoon inside the Cotai Arena at the Venetian Macao in China. The 30-year-old Algieri (21-0) was relatively unknown outside of New York until he won a split decision over Ruslan Provodnikov last June and became the WBO junior welterweight champion. That victory put Algieri in the discussion as the next opponent for Pacquiao (56-6-2), the only boxer ever to win world titles in eight different weight classes. Algieri now has won titles in two classes, only six behind Pacquiao. But the only comparison that matters – that of who the better boxer was on this night -- just happened. IF HE LOSES MACAU – Chris Algieri flew halfway across the world with the goal of turning the entire boxing world upside down by beating Manny Pacquiao and taking his WBO welterweight championship belt. He didn’t reach that goal. Algieri, from Greenlawn, was knocked down six times in losing by unanimous decision to Pacquiao on Sunday afternoon inside the Cotai Arena at the Venetian Macao in China. The 30-year-old Algieri (20-1) was relatively unknown outside of New York until he won a split decision over Ruslan Provodnikov last June and became the WBO junior welterweight champion. That victory put Algieri in the discussion as the next opponent for Pacquiao (57-5-2), the only boxer ever to win world titles in eight different weight classes.
