It’s Pacquiao-Algieri fight week fight fans! And the fighters are now in Macau for the big boxing event this weekend.
Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao and American undefeated boxer Chris Algieri were already in Macau for their upcoming fight on Saturday at the Venetian Macao’s Cotai Arena in Macau, China on HBO PPV.
Pacquiao ((56-5-2, 38 KO’s) will defend his WBO welterweight title against Algieri (20-0, 8 KO’s). Pacquiao regain the title back from another American in Timothy Bradley in a rematch in April. Bradley took the title back in 2012 in one of the most controversial decision in boxing.
Algieri, who arrived a day earlier than Pacquiao, did a two-hour light training according to a report from Dyan Castillejo of ABS-CBN.
If Algieri arrived in a smaller group, with his trainer Tim Lane, Pacquiao, as usual, arrived with a huge entourage. The Filipino fighting congressman came with a group of 380 people.
“Pacquiao had so many people in his group that he needed two planes to bring them all”, writes Dan Rafael on his blog at ESPN.com
