Pacquiao Has Already Made Weight Four Weeks out from Algieri Fight


al-and-pac-best-e1410547353644Fighter of the Decade and boxing’s only eight-division world champion MANNY “Pacman” PACQUIAO put on an awesome display at his Media Workout on Friday. Members of the press from all over the Philippines crammed into his General Santos City gym to watch him work out with Hall of Fame trainer World-Famous Freddie Roach. Pacquiao, in his second reign as World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight champion, has been in intense training for his title defense against New York’s undefeated WBO junior welterweight champion CHRIS ALGIERI.

“Weight has never been an issue for Manny. But to have him make weight four weeks in advance of a fight is incredible – even for him,” exclaimed Roach as Manny showed off his washboard abs to everyone with a camera. “He is so motivated for his fight with Algieri. The way Manny is training he could fight for his own AND Algieri’s title on November 22!

“Being in the ring with someone as tall as Algieri may be unusual for Manny but it is far from intimidating. Sparring partners Viktor Postal, the undefeated WBC No. 1 super lightweight contender, Stan Martyniouk and Mike Jones are more than preparing Manny for his upcoming title defense. If Algieri’s camp was seeing what I’m seeing here they would be adding worry beads to the collection of power stones they wear.

“One thing about Manny, he loves turning undefeated fighters into once-defeated fighters. I expect this fight with Algieri to be one of Manny’s finest hours.”
