When: tonight, November 22nd, 2014
Where: Venetian Macao’s Cotai Arena in Macau
Where can I watch the Pacquiao vs Algieri fight: HBO PPV 9 ET
What’s at stake: the WBO Welterweight title
Ok, so it’s not the Pacquiao vs Mayweather fight of the millennium; the fight that would determine who is undoubtedly the best welterweight fighter of their generation. Nope, instead we have a tantalizing appetizer of a boxing fight. A fight that most pundits believe should be handled by Pacquiao pretty handily.
One can argue Pacquiao is really trying to set up a future Mayweather fight by getting noticed again.
Even though Pacquiao is winding down his boxing dominance here in 2014 this match still has that certain feel that a dominant and confident Pacquiao will rise to the task and dispense any notion he is declining. Although Algieri can pose some problems with his height and reach advantage, Pacquiao has whispered to his confidants that he can see Algieri going down in one of the earlier rounds.
It is true that a knockout is always possible; however, but in this case could be a long shot. Pacquiao hasn’t knocked anyone out in 5 years.
