Pacquiao Not Too Worried About Algieri: 'He's Okay'

By Edward Chaykovsky

Manny Pacquiao does not seem too worried about his upcoming opponent, undefeated Chris Algieri. Pacquiao (56-5-2) will defend his World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight title against Algieri (20-0) on November 22 at the Venetian in Macau, China.

In his last fight, Algieri captured the WBO light welterweight title in a big upset over Pacquiao's Wild Card stablemate, Ruslan Provodnikov. Algieri took the belt with what some felt was a controversial split decision in June.

The only thing Pacquiao appears to be focused on is Algieri's height, which he plans to counteract with his speed and movement.

"I saw his fight with Ruslan. He took a lot of bad punches from Ruslan but he's tough. He can box. I'm not saying he's really good but he's not bad. He's okay," Pacquiao said. "The biggest challenge for me is to fight another tall guy. I have to use my speed and footwork for this fight."
