MANNY THE MAULER IS BACK: Pacquiao Dominates Algieri in Macau

pacquiao-algieri

Manny Pacquiao, the old Manny Pacquiao, the nasty one, the one who persistently and violently went into search and destroy mode, was present in the main event from the Cotai Arena in Macau, on Saturday night (US time), and on HBO pay-per-view. He took it to Chris Algieri, scoring knockdown in round two, six, nine, ten totaling six of the beatdowns on the Long Islander, and whaddya know, all those times Freddie Roach told us we'd be seeing “the old Manny”….the presence of the concussive Congressman was bad news for Algieri, who had some luck moving and avoiding contact early, but then not so much.

Indeed, it was a Rocky road for the confident hitter who thought and hoped he'd extend his underdog upset streak. Not so; Pacquiao got the W, via scores of 119-103, 119-103, 120-102.

Algieri (age 30; 20-0 entering, with 8 KOs; 155 on fight night) who needed extra time to get from 144.4 to 143.8 at the weigh in on Friday, hails from Long Island, and currently lives in his parents’ basement.

Pacman (age 35; 143.8 to 149 on fight night) splits his time between boxing, and pro hoops and holding a Congressional seat.

The WBO welter crown was up for grabs in this 144 or less catchweight bout.

In the first, Chris moved left, away from the Manny left. A right hook landed on CA. The rangy NY boxer felt quickly Manny’s foot speed. A right lead on replay looked sharp from Algieri.

In the second, a straight left sent Algieri down..or was it a slip, on a watery corner? Algieri wasn’t committing so much to the jab, was more so looking to stay smart defensively. Replay showed slip, for the record.

In the third, Algieri moved incessantly, feinted, used a “stay away from me” jab, and he landed a clean right lead. Trainer Tim Lane said Algieri was “still in round one,” meaning he will stay focused and smartly defensive.

In the fourth, Manny came out firing and Algieri backing up. Chris held a high guard, kept moving his head and torso, but he ate a hard left near the end.

In the fifth, Algieri came out jabbing more. He made Manny miss quite smartly. A right and left hook, and then sliding away was working for Algieri. He won that round, boxing sweetly and smartly.

In the sixth, down went Algieri. He slipped and went down, for the third time, probably from a wet canvas. The left hand hurt him on the first one.

In the seventh, Algieri didn’t throw out the blueprint…but he had to know he was down on the cards and he’d need to power to re-take any momentum. He more so looked to not get clipped in this round.

In the eighth, Algieri kept moving, kept trying to win a round by a slim margin. He probably didn’t…

In the ninth, down went Algieri, off a straight left before an Algieri hook came. He was on bad legs. He took a knee, his fifth knockdown, right after.

In the tenth, down went Algieri again. Left hands, a right hook, and tired legs did it…Trainer Tim Lane told Chris he was now letting him out of the cage.

In the 11th, Manny landed a sharp lead left, and hunted down the American, craving more carnage. Lane brought up “champion lifestyle” and the “Chris Algieri show.”

In the 12th, Algieri did well to stay on his feet, and finish the fight. We went to the cards..

C'mon Radam . . where's your post? After the last few months, you must just be aching to chime in and start handing out that crow pie to all who opposed you on this. :)


-mortcola :

Well, my favorite fighter won. And except for the knockdowns, Chris fought with smarts, class, great anticipation, and big balls..Few people have ever made manny miss that much, or landed as clearly since Marquez. But truth and experience win out. Pac is one of the ATGs, and the home town boy can go home proud, That?s all I wanted.

I think Radam is shocked and amazed it went the distance, I know I am !


-SouthPawFlo :

Who didn't see this coming????? The only thing that impressed me about Algeri was his heart and his ability not to call "Bullshit" when listening to his Corner......


-stormcentre :

Algieri is a tough guy, that’s for sure. But, with all those knockdowns, Pacman basically owned and handed Chris’ azz to him. I guess the big question is now after all this, is Floyd’s psychological state currently polarized correctly to accept Manny’s challenge so that both, (a) Cotto V Canelo doesn’t steal the day, and (b) so Mayweather remains relevant at the top echelon of the sport? I’m not so sure – and that’s even aside from Errol Spence tagging Floyd in the gym, Floyd crying over it and the marks it left, and asking Errol to leave.

Man that kid was on his bike. He must have racked up 19 miles back peddling in 36 mintues

I'm too busy getting on my parteee! But holla at the fight.

Wow! I see that YouTube has already knocked down my link. Holla!


-kidcanvas :

manny throttled algieri as expected ,so he landed a few rts ,other than that he was on the bike all night.his corner had to be hallucinating with those instructions


-Kid Blast :

Some mighty strange quotes. Kellerman: "Chris fights in a multidimensional way within one dimension?" Lane: "We got him where we want him" just before he was decked hard to the canvas. The kid is too nice for the cesspool that boxing is. He needs a few more paydays and a PhD.


-DaveB :

People sell you on what can happen in boxing. Just because it can happen doesn't mean that it is likely to happen. Pacquaio was two tiers above this guy. The last two weeks what should have happen did happen what could of didn't.

Kellerman's quote was different to say the least. And the timing of saying I still got him in his cage and I'm going to let him out in the next round to knock Pacquaio out and boom Algeri gets knocked down at that moment was something. I also noticed when Jim Lampley made a statement, I don't remember which fight, and Roy Jones said no and explained why. Jim Lampley said I knew you were going to correct me, Roy. I just knew it. You are right. Then he didn't say anything for a long time. I thought uh-oh now he is mad.

Lmfao, totally! Far too much of that....zzzzzzzzz.


-SouthPaul :

I think a Mayweather vs PAC fight would be similar to what we saw last night. It would be somewhat of a snoozer at a very high cost to the fans. I hope it never happens.

Algieri was on his bike from the first round and never got off. If he's going to fight like that, he'll have more success in the Tour de France. I expected Manny to win by UD, but I thought Algieri would have at least tried to make a fight out of it, at least after Tim Lane "let him out of his cage." Hard to say what'll be next for Algieri. He should fire Tim Lane and see if an actual boxing coach will pick him up. He has the physical skills and technique to have some success in the sport, though probably never at the most elite levels. Otherwise, it's back to ESPN and club fights.


-Radam G :

For a biker -- motorcycle biker -- C-Al got hit too much with big, smashing-torpedo shots. That is a bad sign and a quick career ender. In two scraps, he has fought the equivalent of about 12 smash-mouthed scraps. "Don't sweat the technique" my arse. Change your style and those lyrics. Dude is listening to the wrong types of beats. This game plays for keeps. If F- Al -- I mean C-Al -- wants to enjoy his high earning and his peeps, he needs to get rid of the Tim Lane-type of creeps. The next thing that Tim Lane might tell anyone who will listen, is that he is really Little Bo Peep, and she has lost her pink and purple sheep. And they are under your bed sheet. And in, some uglies might creep. That kissing cousin of Lois Lane has been lain back and sipping too much kyptonite gin and juice. Holla!


-Froggy :

So Pacquiao looked pretty good, I think this means everybody but Floyd has renewed interest in them getting together ?

Holla at this link:

-Yogo :

Mismatch. Props to all the guys who called it. Manny just schools. He'll do the same to young gun Danny 'Swift' next. If Jnr dares. I reckon old Radam's doing some epic partying right now and neglecting many of his good habits. Ha and Holla!

Never do I neglect good nutrition habits nowadays. And I don't drink anymore. If I could leave da dames, damsels and dolls alone, I would be inhuman. That is GOD's fault for all these eye candy gals. My darn wondering eyes are all over the place. And my pants don't have enough space. And my Johnson just have to have a XX-chromosome taste. Hehe! Holla!
