Algieri: A KO of Pacquiao is Not Out of The Question!

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

Although he is not a big puncher, WBO junior welterweight champion Chris Algieri (20-0, 8KOs) is not ruling out the possibility of a stoppage victory on November 22nd, when he travels to Macau to challenge WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao (56-5-2, 38KOs) on HBO Pay-Per-View from the Venetian Resort.

Algieri landed the opportunity to face Pacquiao with last month's upset twelve round split decision victory over Ruslan Provodnikov at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

"No, [a knockout is not out of the question], not at all . Manny has five losses and three of them are stoppages. It's definitely not out of the question. I was saying even with the Provodnikov fight. As good as his chin is, I didn't think a stoppage was out of the question in that fight. I think things changed because of the eye but I don't doubt that if we fought again that a knockout wouldn't be there," Algieri told BoxingScene.com.

Regarding the fight itself, Algieri is confident that his boxing style will present Pacquiao with the same set of problems that Provodnikov experienced last month.

"I’m the bigger guy. I’m a bigger framed guy. I’m a heavier guy, and I think I present some very unique challenges to him. I’m long, strong, fast, athletic, good boxing skills. That’s gonna to be tough for anyone in the division and I think that's going to be especially tough for Manny," Algieri said.

Ruslan sure killed off a few of Algieris braincells in their fight...
