Another phenomenal display of talent was shown by the 35 year old Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao of the Philippines in his latest bout against the American, Chris Algieri. Before the fight, various speculations are heard and people seemed to have divided views regarding the match. Some said that it’s considered as “mismatch of the year”, yet others believed that it's gonna be an interesting one to see, considering Manny who uses "southpaw stance" will battle Algieri, who is a very unorthodox boxer.
Looking closely, the challenger, Algieri had been so consistent in his battles against tough players. He has an outstanding record of 20-0, with 8 wins by way of KO before losing to Pacman. His reach and height, which proven to be his advantage against the smaller Pacman, was the primary concern of the Pacquiao team and all boxing enthusiasts around the world.
The fight lasted for 12 rounds, in an unending exchange of jabs and uppercuts everywhere. Pacman, though, the more experienced fighter with his blatant display of ferocity and pure world-class boxing skills knocked down the tough challenger a total of six times, making it impossible for his opponent to bounce back. The Filipino champ won the bout in a unanimous decision. It nearly ended the drought for Pacman after 5 years of no KO wins.
Aside from his latest accomplishment, the veteran boxer has proven to all Filipinos around the world his prowess in all facets of his life. He doesn't seem to stop, doesn't settle down and continues to do his best in everything he does. Truly, the pound-for-pound champion has resurfaced.
