Pacquiao (56-5-2, 38 KOs), the Filipino icon and boxing’s only eight-division titleholder, will be making the first defense of his title since regaining it by lopsided unanimous decision against Timothy Bradley Jr. in April in a rematch of Bradley’s hugely controversial split decision in June 2012.
Algieri (20-0, 8 KOs) had two hours to lose the weight, but used only about an hour before coming back to the scale and making weight at 143.6 pounds.
Junior welterweight titlist Algieri, who works as a nutritionist as a side job and was moving up in weight, surprisingly failed to make the catch weight contract limit of 144 pounds on his first try. He was slightly over at 144.2 pounds, even after stripping nude.
With the fight being held in another continent, the start time will still accommodate viewers in the United States. HBO PPV begins its live broadcast at 9 pm. ET on Saturday night, but the undercard won’t allow Pacquiao and Algieri to enter the ring until approximately two hours later.
The 13-hour time difference means the match will take place on Sunday in the early afternoon in Macau. Even before Pacquiao and Rios fought in China, starting a boxing match early in the day in another country was nothing new. The “Thrilla in Manila” between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier was fought in the morning so it could be broadcast in primetime in the United States.
Algieri has never fought outside of the United States. In the biggest fight of his career, the 30-year-old is guaranteed to make approximately $1.5 million.
Hurray! The EPL is back after the international break and there are some great matches coming up. Seven games on Saturday, two on Sunday and one on Monday. All games can be found live and free on VIPLeague. Check out the football and soccer schedule for the full list of streams. Continue reading for EPL Week 12 Preview & Live Stream information.
Kansas City Chiefs (7-3) @ Oakland Raiders (0-10) , O.co Coliseum, Oakland, California
Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders are among of the league’s most bitter and passionate rivalries, but the two teams couldn’t be headed in more opposite directions entering their matchup on Thursday Night Football. While the Chiefs have firmly established themselves as playoff contenders, the Raiders are permanent residents in the NFL’s cellar.
It has been more than a year (Nov. 17, 2013) since the Raiders last celebrated a victory, and their 16-game losing streak is now the fourth-longest all time. How bad is it in Oakland? They have played just three offensive snaps when leading in the second half. this season. The New England Patriots have 271. However, they have been competitive against some good teams this season. Five of their 10 losses have been by seven points or fewer, including a 13-6 loss at San Diego last week.
