Manny Pacquiao isn’t impressed by Chris Algieri.
The WBO welterweight champion described his next opponent as only an ‘okay’ fighter recently, despite Algieri’s unbeaten record and winning over Ruslan Provonikov to earn a shot at ‘The Pac Man.’
“I saw his fight with Ruslan,” Pacquiao said. “He took a lot of bad punches from Ruslan but he’s tough.
In his April rematch with Timothy Bradley, ‘The Pac Man’ claimed a convincing decision win, but faces a different proposition in the form of the 5’10” Algieri, who boxed cleverly off the back foot against Provodnikov.
“The biggest challenge for me is to fight another tall guy. I have to use my speed and footwork for this fight,” said Pacquiao.
The two will meet on November 23 in Macau.
