Manny Pacquaio Says Chris Algieri Didn’t Want To ‘Engage’

After handing Chris Algieri a beating, Manny Pacquaio evaluated his own performance with reporters after the match.

“He didn’t want to engage. He only engaged during the start of the first round,” Pacquiao said in Filipino when he was asked why he wasn’t able to put Algieri away despite recording 6 knockdowns. “I didn’t really have a hard time against him. I also just didn’t want to be careless. In the past, I’ve gotten a loss because I got careless. I dropped him many times, but Algieri is just really tough.”
