Algieri Vows To Make Pacquiao Feel Old With Size, Skill

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

WBO junior welterweight champion Chris Algieri (20-0, 8KOs) has promised to use his physical gifts to unseat Manny Pacquiao (56-5-2, 38KOs) for the WBO welterweight crown on November 22nd at the Venetian in Macau, China. Algieri earned the HBO Pay-Per-View fight with an upset twelve round decision over Ruslan Provodnikov on June 14th.

Many in boxing believe Pacquiao is starting to show his age, he's slowing down, and doesn't look as explosive as he did several years ago. Pacquiao has been unable to get a stoppage win since 2009.

"I guess I'll find out on November 22nd [if he's getting old]. Either way, I'm going to try to make him feel like that [way]. Whether he is or he isnt, my job is to make him feel like that," Aligieri said.

Despite moving up in weight, Algiei is confident that he'll be the bigger man come fight night. Algieri will use ever inch of his 5'10 frame and 72' reach advantage against Pacquiao.

"I'm a bigger person. I don't care about the weight classes, I'm going to be the bigger man on that night. He's never fought someone as large as me. You think Margarito, who is a large guy but he's not an athletic guy. [Margarito] is not a guy who is going to be pushing, pulling, using his jab.  He was a straight-forward slugger there to be hit. Manny kills those guys, he picks them apart. Guys who move, guys who give angles, guys who are stylish boxers he has trouble with. And I dont think there are a lot of guys who better than me in the world right now [in those areas]," Algieri said.

That's great and all ....but that won't mean crap if he doesn't have the power to keep PAC honest. If PAC doesn't feel threatened by your power, he'll keep walking you down. And the combinations will eventually land. And eventually…

He'll make Pac look not so good. Style match-up Algieri will make it a frustrating fight, I see Manny winning a decision but expect a boring fight with Manny following landing here and there and Algieri jabbing and pot shotting.

I think, Pac is in lose-lose situation here. High Risk, Low Reward. If he lose, His stock will rapidly downfall, if he win (specially if not in spectacular fashion), vast majority of people will not give him credit though his…
