Manny Pacquiao beats Algieri


Boxing champ  Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao presented  a magnificent display of dominance as he destroyed American challenger Chris Algieri, putting to record  six knockdowns which lead to  unanimous decision win Sunday morning at the Cotai Arena in Macau.

Faced with  a taller fighter with strong boxing skills, Pacquiao proved that he still has what winning streak in him, giving out powerful punches and remarkable speed that once made him the top pound-for-pound boxer in the world.

In the beginning, Pacquiao  was never seriously challenged by Algieri, brushing off the American’s sporadic punches and instead let go of  combinations that made  Algieri’s left eye swollen  and  staggeing  his feet.

It was obvious that Pacquiao  wanted to end a knockout drought that started from 2009, but Algieri was able to  hold it out until the final bell. But Filipino pride  still won having  judges scoring the bout 119-103, 119-103, and 120-102.

"Tonight, I did my best," a beaming Pacquiao said after the fight. "I am satisfied with my performance tonight. I came to fight, I did my best, and that was enough."
