Marquez Tabs Pacquiao To Beat Algieri, KO is Possible

By Salvador Rodriguez

Former four division champion Juan Manuel Marquez is picking WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao (56-5-2, 38KOs) to overcome unbeaten Chris Algieri (20-0, 8KOs), the WBO champion at 140-pounds, on November 22nd at the Venetian Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. Marquez fought Pacquiao four times and scored a sixth round knockout in the fourth meeting back on December 8th in 2012.

"He barely has a chance to win. Algieri is strong and he's durable. He has also has boxing ability, as he's shown against Ruslan Provodnikov - but he doesn't have the style to beat Pacquiao, who has great speed and power. I believe that [Pacquiao] can win by knockout," Marquez said.

[QUOTE=hectari;14831229]A realist does, study the fights and don't get blinded by name value an superstar status. Pac is well passed his prime, his body has taken beatings, he is worn down. Algieir is fresh, fast, mobile, and younger. Watch the…
